It's a gorgeous, sunny 52F today here along the river. DH and I took Beagle for a nice long walk at noon. Sadly, it's supposed to come to an end soon, the weatherman is talking windchill of -30 for the weekend.

Oh do be quiet! I was standing downstairs at the mailboxes this morning around 10 a.m. The door opened to let someone in. A blast of cold air came in and it took my breath away. Right now it is a balmy 28F at 9:15 p.m. here. And that is today's high.

Cheryl, you're now getting what we had earlier. Wild wind and pounding rain mid morning. We got 1 inch in the rain gauge and now the sun is out. We're watching you get pounded on radar.

It's been darn near tropical all day. Bright and sunny, with the temp holding at about 70F. Pretty breezy, though, because I thought I saw Dorothy and Toto fly by a few times. It's clouded over a bit but still 66F.

A far cry from the same time last week. We had about 8 inches of snow over ice and no one was going anywhere.

I think Mother Nature is bipolar.

Yeah, that looks about right! I just love it. Good thing I don't need to go out today, although I would really love a glass of wine on this rainy day, but I'm out.

How about a spot of Brandy in a Hot Toddy??
