I have a large sweet potato in the oven baking. I have no idea what I am going to eat with it. I have some Hormel ham patties. I usually give them to Teddy, but I just might cook one for myself.

Updating SO's TomTom. Later we're off to Boston overnight. SO is attending a Northeast dermatology convention as a patient. She has an issue with her scalp that is unique. We sent photos for a slide presentation and Saturday AM we will be there as doctors who are interested can question and examine her.

Watching the sleet fall and observing how the tree limbs are drooping under the weight of all the ice. The weather service has predicted about an half an inch accumulation before it's all done. Poor trees, especially the ones that still have leaves on them.

I did that once Andy. I had a surgery that went horribly wrong. The surgeon ask me if I would be willing to answer questions from other doctors. Sure.

I was sitting all alone at the bottom of rows and rows of student doctors in the amphitheater. I felt so small and was terrified. But I stuck it out for the hour. Would I do it again? Probably

I have a tree that got hit hard by an ice storm years ago. The neighbor thought I'd cut it down, but I let that ugly thing recover. It still doesn't look right, lol.

Is it any danger to a building or someone else's property?

After our ice storm of 2009, there was hardly a tree that didn't sustain some sort of damage. Their normal "up" shapes became "downs" and all broken in between. Even now, in the fall when all the leaves are off, the strange-shaped skeletons of the trees are evident.

The wind has now begun to pick up and we'll see limbs coming down if it continues. Many of what will break during this storm are parts of the trees that were so heavily damaged in 2009. In the spring we'll see plenty of dead trees that couldn't handle a second hit.

Why yes it is, Addie. It is leaning against some electrical wires that run over the top of my neighbor's pool. Should that have made a difference?

I'm the one who used my nice-enough kitchen shears for a creative purpose. I tried them when cutting down my day lilies at the end of the growing season! Worked so well I kept those shears in my gardening tool tote and bought new, nicer ones for the kitchen.
