Outside, it's raining and a bit warm, 56 degrees.

Inside, it's warm but cranky!

With love,

I'm wearing shorts. Does that tell you anything? It's 68F right now and very windy.

We had some significant thunderstorms during the night last night and the rain gauge registered 2 1/2 inches of rain. The rain didn't begin until after midnight so it was a lot in a brief period of time.

Storms are predicted for us today, which are supposed to include heavy, heavy rains and more winds. Flash flooding is expected. I'm not surprised. Our pond is full to overflowing. The spillway is so deep Harley can swim in it. Usually it's not more than ankle deep.

Looks like Mother Nature is having a hissy fit over today being the first day of winter.

The ice pellets seem to be mixed with freezing rain now. I much prefer the ice pellets. This is what it looks like out my backdoor:

That looked my my house last week, Taxy. It's all but gone now due to this rain.
I am not looking forward to looking at my basement tomorrow. I've got a wet spot starting already from the super saturated ground.

Wet spots in the basement are never good.

It's wet here. Very wet. And warm. 58*. High of 65* today. Friend just left for Daytona. He had two choices. Down through Atlanta, raining all the way to the other side of Atlanta, or over through Asheville, raining to Asheville and dry the rest of the way. He decided to go the Asheville route. I think that was smart. Atlanta in the rain is never fun.

It's 71 degrees and cloudy right now. We're expecting a high of near 80!
