Today our temp is 55F and raining hard right now. I will change the weather to sunny and warm, then send it on the way across the pond.

Earlier today, I thought I saw a few cats and dogs dropping from the sky. Now it's just that annoying "drip-drip-drip" thing going on. If you're going to rain, RAIN, darn it! At least today's earlier frog-strangler probably washed away most of the annoying dust left behind from the sand/salt mixture they use on the winter roads. Each spring I end up getting that dust in my eyes...and under my contact lenses.

Perfect day for staying in bed, under the covers, and sleeping. Unfortunately, my Catholic Guilt kept kicking me in the shins. I got up...

One time many moons ago, the sand/salt truck stopped right in front of my house. The driver had run into the sub shop right next door. I had just walked up to my door when he appeared. I asked him to please dump a bunch right inside my house all over my rugs. Then I could at least get it over with for the season. It seemed every day I must have swept up a good pound of the stuff each day. That heavy duty bushy mat right outside my door was one step below useless. Or maybe it was my kids who didn't know how to use it.

Pretty snow pics, Taxy.

Right now it's a nice cool 61F with glorious rain!

61 F, and thundering. It's rained off and on all day. Beagle is very confused, when I would hook her up for a walk, it would start pouring. Beagle is not a water dog, she despises rain.

May I introduce her to Teddy. They can compare notes! And Teddy just loves the girls.

It rained overnight. I think it was purple, but it was dark, so I can't say for sure.
