Cool thermometer! lol
We've got a nice little dusting right now. It's cold, but no wind. Nice day.

Pac you probably won't get the snow that we are scheduled to get this evening. It's coming from the south I believe.

Heck, PF - I can tell even from down here that it's cold outside where you live.

Mum's the word on our Florida temps. Don't need no brickbats sent south.

Hot is not always the most desirable weather. Especially when you factor in menopause! LOL

Not pretty.

Opened the blinds this morning at 7 to see everything coated in ice. The wind is blowing and we have a combination or rain and sleet, mostly sleet. Now, nearly 4 hours later, absolutely everything is covered solidly in ice. The road is one big sheet of ice and it's still coming down. Supposed to do this for today and tomorrow, ramping up as the hours pass. Seems eerily similar to January 2009.

We called our trip to Atlanta off. Good decision. Traveling would be risky, especially in some of the areas we were to travel. Plus, we need to be here because if we lose power there is every possibility the water pipes might freeze. Definitely do not want that. At least by being home we can run the gas logs to keep the house warmish and prevent any frozen pipes.

We're all set and I have a pile of knitting and crocheting I can do to stay occupied. Not that I ever need anything to stay busy. I always have something to do.

My game plan is set for dinner meals in the event we lose power. Gonna depend on the crock-pot early on, then utilize the gas cooktop after that, if necessary. Got my fingers crossed that everything stays on. Still, this region is a little goofy. The electricity can go off because of a big rain storm. Ah, life in the country.

We have a ridiculous 77 degrees today. It's December, for crying out loud! Supposed to be cooler this weekend, in the 50s with rain.

Mid-40's and gloomy. No matter the weather I HAVE to run a couple errands. Then we'll snug in to our chairs tonight to watch TV or read. Tomorrow is college football starting at noon and going until (fingers crossed) Ohio State beats Michigan State in the 8 o'clock game. Go Bucks!

It's worked all day to get up to 4 degrees. The outdoor temp is starting to take its toll in my drafty old house. Time to put on my wool sox I guess.

I would Like to go to the store. I don't Need to do so. I'm staying inside.

I have a series of movies lined up to watch this evening.
