Yeah, I don't have to go anywhere until next Monday.

CG, it might disappear on Friday, but look at what's in store for us next week:



At this point, personally, I think someone has their wires crossed. If we really get this much snow, I vow to eat a vegetable.

Seems the city has come up with some stupid money saving formula about salting/gritting the roads, so they were slipping on snow on ice too.
I forgot to say, yes, I did watch it. And all I can say is, I really, really want some lights on top of my car. Because in case I slide down a hill,I would want them flashing all the way down, too!

Ah, the joys of global climate change.

A green vegetable, right?

Wonder why 3-5 inches this week is "snow" but 3-5 inches next week is "snow showers"?

Coming home from Florida was a rude awakening. From 80 to 25, and today is even colder, around 16. Wind makes it worse.

I just got a weather alert warning. Black tonight. Makes not only walking very difficult, but places drivers in precarious danger.

I guess the whole northern part of the US is getting a storm of some kind. I heard the upper MIdwest is getting hit with a lot of wind and snow as well.

Stay safe, Addie.

We have a balmy 20F. Thankfully, our 8+ inches of snow is almost gone, but we're supposed get more this weekend.

Thank you. I do have to get up early and make a quick trip to the corner store. I want to make Julia Child's recipe for English Muffins. I need a special ingredient for them. Then back inside to stay. We are not expecting any snow until next Wednesday, but not much.

40F here now, supposed to be a low of 28F tonight. I'm freezing half to death. Just put on another sweatshirt and turned the heater on. :-)

Well, we got our snow. All 1/4" of it. But I have no way of knowing what it's like further out of the city. There could be considerably more snow there.
