Sunny, about a dozen degrees above normal - probably to make up for all the sub-normal temps we've been having. Mid-50s today, followed by mid-40s tomorrow, the mid-30s (at best) and Thursday. Harumph, I wish Mom Nature would get her act together.

I'm supposed to get that storm, too.
It's 43F right now, then it's supposed to start raining tonight and change to snow with an accumulation up to 10" by tomorrow night and temps in the low teens by Thursday.
Then back up into the forties Friday.

For some strange reason, Teddy likes to sit down in puddles, move his butt about and then get up and drink from the puddle.

Today our temp is 57F. I went downstairs to get my mail and one of the residents was sitting outside with not even a sweater on. I was able to go out and sit with her for a few minutes only because I had my shawl wrapped around me. I can get used to this weather.

Cleaning his anal gland? A very fastidious critter, but he ruined it by drinking the water.

Too funny! I had a dog that used to drag her butt continuously. Off to the Vet we would go when I couldn't stand it any more.....

(I just couldn't learn to do it myself even thou Vet offered on several occasions to teach me!).

Her glands were always just fine! Vet finally said "forget about it! some dogs just like to drag their butts! It's a habit that they seem to enjoy!"

35 today & overcast. It started sleeting mid morning. It turned to snow, briefly. It melted as soon as it hit the ground. Nothing stuck.

Goodness! That brings memories!

I was in my early mid teens and working in an office waaaaay back when (think early 60's) ... I used to wear a shawl and everyone would laugh asking if I was 75.

But they are perfect! Keeps your shoulders warm, frees up your forearms, are very light but extremely warm without being hot! If a good size, you can wrap around you in a very covering way!

Shawls ROCK!

Thanks Addie!
