LOL My husband and I always sing that song when we're driving in the snow!

Her temps aren't going to fall anywhere near PF's. They might get down to what PF has in July.

The skies have been nicely sunny too. I feel like I live in paradise. Actually, I believe I really do.

How soon we forget Katrina!

I think the way our government acted during Katrina, after and still, is absolutely disgusting. I felt like I was watching pictures from Bangladesh. And now they are repeating the same with Sandy.

I can't take Scoot out in the snow. I have no way of knowing ahead if the handicap accesses are shoveled and would have to ride her in the street. Too dangerous. Also I have no desire for a broken hip. So once the snow and ice comes, I am pretty much inside until the first major meltdown. The only time I get out is for shopping when Spike takes me.

It was heartbreaking to watch the news after Katrina. I could barely watch. I think they didn't expect so much damage because the worst came when the dam or levee failed. And then with Sandy, they got hit twice so close together. It was devastating. Our government sends so much more money to other countries when they have a tragedy. Charity begins at home.

One of my favorite things is to walk in the snow when it's really cold and feel the snow crunch under my boots. When I lived at home and it snowed, I would ask my mother if she needed something from the store so I could walk in the snow to get it.

Carol as you know and most of this country knows, Massachusetts is a die hard Democrat state. In this building we have one lone Republican who refuses to vote because she feels her vote will not count. She see nothing wrong with the way our government has handled disasters. "Let the people help themselves. Why should our tax dollars be spent of them?"

Today is Election Day in Boston. After 20 years our mayor is retiring. But on the ballot for East Boston And Revere alone, not the rest of Boston, is the question, "Should we allow a casino to be built?" She refuses to vote because there are no Republicans on the ballot. None chose to run for the office of Mayor. And the Casino question has nothing to do with parties. Nothing will ever change her mind. One day I asked her how come she is a Republican. "Because when I got married, my husband told me I had better vote only for Republicans, so I always have." Eh!

One of the things I am upset about is all the signs right outside the door to the voting. This is strictly against the law. There is a cop inside and he should be out there making them take the signs down. They are supposed to be out on the sidewalk. I think a call to the Election Committee is needed.

It started snowing here about noon today. We ended up w about 3" of heavy wet snow. Now it's turned into sleet, a mix of snow & rain. The temp's are in the mid 30's so it's not real cold. Don't think this snow will stick around long in SE South Dakota.

I'm trying to learn contractions. I might get this wrong. Please correct me!

The weather here is COLD! I'm freezing my tail off and so is Azia when we have to go outside. Snow is in the forecast tonight, but not very much of it; just flurries.

I love cold weather, though. It's very invigorating! Snow smells so clean.

With love,
~Cat
