The weather will definitely hurt my business today but my mood is so elevated today. It's raining here, heavy at times. It's been at least a couple of years since it's rained like this and I love it. We're execpting this storm to stick around til Sat morning......Nice!

16F, with windchill -6 and 21 mph winds with gusts to 50 mph. I got sent home as non-essential personnel. Surprised me, they could always keep me around to fill in if someone can;t get to work. As it is, where I had to park the car, I may not be able to get out. The snowdrifts are close to 5'.

See, this is what happens when you keep wishing for snow. Just think of the snowpack that's building up in the mountains.


No snow here but bitter cold again. Not zero...yet. But our high today was over 20 degrees below the day's average. I want a heat wave...temperatures in the 40s!

LOL!!!

Shrek just wandered in from checking the mail, covered in snow. He had been out for long enough I was thinking I would have to get dressed again and go search for him. He fell in the snow and couldn't get back up. I got his hands into cold water, they were bright red and cold as ice. No frostbite, thank goodness. No more going out for him until they clear the walks.

Why was that boy NOT wearing his Yaxtrax? *said with arms crossed while tapping foot* He needs to be grounded until you have bare ground.

Glad he's OK though. Did he learn his lesson? Men...they can't be taught.

Sounds like it's cold enough that he'd be well-preserved, and you wouldn't need to clear out the freezer....
