Kind of wacky today.

When I got up it was sunny and sort of mild but very, very windy. Perhaps 45 degrees F. Then it began to cloud up. Very manic. Sometimes grey. Sometimes brilliant sunshine. By mid-afternoon, it stayed cloudy and snow swirled around us for a short while. Before long it was all gone and we had sunshine again but still very windy. When I got out of the car, the wind whipped the door out of my hand. Whoa!

Sadly, it's too cloudly to see the eclipse. Oh, well, maybe next time.

Right now it's gotten colder. In the 30s F. Still very, very windy, maybe 20 mph+. I think I just saw Dorothy and Toto fly by our front porch.

Today was beautiful..I have a handicapped scooter so I took Dove for a walk...LOL...she loves to ride in the basket I have on the front. We rode for about 40 minutes and she didn't want to get out. She has cabin fever too.

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

The rain and wind are back. Good thing we did our grocery shopping yesterday as I would be annoyed to walk 2 miles in the rain getting it today!

We're in the single digits here today, and going below zero tonight, but there is hope for the weekend, we may hit 40 or more Trust me, that will seem very warm for us! On the bright side, the sun is up early and the song birds are back! Love my cardinals just like Vera

About 29-30 degrees. Not windy at all. Actually sunny today for a change.
I was beginning to forget what sunshine looked like. We got hit with about 4 inches of snow about 4 days ago. Hopefully it's come to an end. Bbut then again this is Cleveland so we may get one more blast of winter before then end of April.

couple of inches of snow yesterday afternoon so of course school had to be closed today. Supposed to get up in to the 50s this weekend -- whoo hoo!

unfortunately, this will expose all the dog poop in the back 40 that used to be hiding under the snow.
