We just got a bit of ice pellets and snow. But south of us all the way down to Toronto got hammered. 200,000+ still without power and some not expected to get any until Thursday or Friday.

You never answered my question about how much snow, etc. you got during the recent storm.

...about 75 right now but feels like 90 just because it's December. Even warmer on Xmas. I can't get into the holiday groove when temps are unseasonably high like this.
I won't be able to get cozy and enjoy some hot adult beverages by the fireplace.

It was just warm enough to put a layer of water on the ice this morning. Yes, I managed to fall on my butt, No, I did not bounce back up. One of these days I'm going to break something.

Don't have done that. Ow! Were you wearing gloves? I hate it when I fall down in winter and don't have my gloves or mitts on.

Nope, no gloves and soaked my wool sweater coat. Shrek was surprised I got home so soon after saying good bye. After a change of clothes I finally got to work.

And that is why I stay in during the winter months. I am so fearful of breaking a hip. although my calcium levels are pretty good and I have excellent bone density. Please be careful.

If I hadn't lost that weight I would have been able to bounce...
