Just stay in Cornwall. The Girls, dogs and I are hunkered down. We're going nowhere. Stay off the roads if you can.

We're hunkered down as well. I'm keeping an eye on the forecasts for Cornwall and DDO. At the moment, it looks like we should be able to drive home safely on Thursday. We will be keeping an eye on things and decide later. It also depends on when the highways gets cleaned.

Gee, every time I check, the temp goes down another degree. I cracked the window to let some air in the apartment. That was a mistake. Too dang cold out there.

Little by little I have been cranking the heat up. These walls are really thick, but the cold is still creeping in. Snow, sleet, ice. I hate winter.

For Heaven's sake, stop checking the temp

4F...no wind!

It's been warm here, but dang the rain! Driving home from SC on Sunday, all of the rivers and streams were running over their banks. My mom is contemplating growing rice in her back yard

We've had weeks of rain, but the last few days have been heavy and causing flooding. This is why I bought a townhouse built on a hill!

The day started out with rain an the temp in the mid 30's. Now the sun is shining so brightly and the temp is in the low 40's. I can live with that. Had to turn the heat down.

Either Boston has the greatest sewer system or we just are lucky in that I can not ever recall having heard about a flood in this city. The only major river we have is the Charles and that is controlled with gates. That has never gone over its banks that I ever heard of.

Oh yeah. On a really hot summer day, you can still smell the molasses. A lot of the streets in the North End are still cobble stone and the molasses seeped down into the ground below through the breaks in the stones. It does become nauseating after a spell. I always made it a point to not go there during the summer. Only at night, after the sun went down and then only if it was for a festival. They have a festival every single weekend.

We're home. The roads were clear and there was just a little bit of "sprinkling" some of the trip. It's currently -1C (30F). There's an accumulation of 31 cm (12.2") of snow. Looks like winter now.

What is your weather like right now?

Beautiful day. 25 F (-4 C). Sunny, blue sky. Doesn't get much better than that here in MN.
