I check for my local weather on the internet. I gave up watching televised weather because all the weather people stand right in front of what I want to see!

This is the weather I keep an eye on. I especially like to see which way the wind is blowing so I can either open my windows or not. It's been pretty accurate. You'd have to change it to your zip code for your weather:

One of the weather bureau's national centers is located right here at Logan Airport. Just a hop, skip and jump from my home. And they are right on the money all the time. So when they say local, they are talking about my neighborhood directly. Their maps always show a slight less snowfall because I am only yards away from the Atlantic. And that has a lot to do with our weather. Downtown Boston gets so much more snow than we do. The warmth of the Gulf Stream affects my neighborhood. Not so much as downtown Boston which is located more inland and farther into Boston Harbor. So when I know a storm is coming, I look to them. Or the seagulls flying overhead. They always fly inland when a storm is approaching. Makes for a messy neighborhood.

Thanks everyone for the support. I will need to go to REI and get the inserts for my shoes. I got some cheaper ones at Walgreens yesterday, and they helped somewhat. I love riding my bike, but I don't have a stationary bike to ride. The water exercise is a great idea, but I'm not sure where to go. I will have to look into it. Today's petty vent is that I slipped on the ice this morning and fell. At first all that hurt was my hands, but now I am starting to have more pain in other parts of my body. I will take more Aleve before going to bed tonight and see what the morning brings. Sorry to be so down, but pain does that to me.

My slip and fall on ice a few years ago resulted in a broken wrist and tailbone. Don't hesitate to get it checked out.

I have what they call a 'Gadget' on my desktop. It is tied directly to the Weather Bureau at Logan Airport. Everytime the WB updates the gadget goes blank. The first time it ever did that, I thought my computer was crashing. It shows what it is doing outside at that very moment and the temp. It also give a pictorial view of the next three days with the same info.

Thanks Andy. I think I am ok, but just sore. I did file a report at work in case anything becomes of it later. I fell I n the parking lot of one of the schools. A co-worker had just said that it was really slick and I was being careful, and still went right down! Boy did I feel stupid!

Ditto here. You can't always tell when you have a hairline fracture. You don't want to cause more damage. Wouldn't you rather take an hour or two out of your day to get it checked, than months of healing from an aggravated injury? Come tomorrow, don't mask the pain too much or you may not recognize that something is really wrong.

Sorry you fell, ouch! Take it easy. There should be some nice Gyms in your area I just found 20 of them and didn't look at anymore pages. I just typed in your town and pools gyms.

Gah! Chopper, you might want to get an x-ray. I've had broken bones in my wrist, foot, ankle, when the doc had said "no way" on first inspection, and lo and behold, there was a fracture. Only way to find out for sure is an x-ray.

Wowza, our DC crew is sure getting up there on the injuries! Please be careful on the ice!
