That is so very nice of you to do that for her. You are her angel here on earth. Good for you for taking the incentive to care for someone less fortunate. Just think if the whole world did this what a wonderful world it could be!

We woke up to 4F. There is a light dusting of snow over everything. The sun is coming out now, hope we can hit the double didgets today!

The Weather Network says we have freezing rain, but I didn't feel any when I went outside. We're expecting ice pellets this afternoon and evening, then it should be clear overnight and no precipitation until 26 December. We are also expecting wind gusting to 90 km/hr (56 MPH).

We had a lot of snow last night. In the evening it seemed to be mixed with ice pellets. Not nice for walking home from the bus stop.

Currently -8C (18F) and feels like -16C (3F).

Here's pix out my back door of the same view yesterday and today. There was some drifting.

It's 69F and raining now. Supposed to get to 73 today, then cool down to the 50s for the rest of the week.

Right now it's 45 degrees, and still raining. 3 days now. I wish it was snow. Yesterday was so warm that DH turned off the furnace. Last night he forgot to turn it back on before we went to bed and it was 63 degrees in here when I woke up. That's probably why I slept so well. He keeps it too warm in here.

We actually keep our thermostat set at 63* in the winter and 78* in the summer.
