More freezing rain, more snow on the way, it's been weeks since we saw the sun for any length of time. This is the worst February since we moved here. Hubby has a 4-wheeler but I don't so I'm stuck in the house again. At least I have you guys, you're great company!

Here in Michigan it looks like a winter wonderland, so beautiful! We are getting the 5-7 inches forcasted.

Glorious weather in Houston. I'm taking a break from gardening...er, that is from weed therapy, cutting off frost damaged branches from firespike, turk's cap and the like as I pull weeds. Very few plants suffered damage this year. Another mild winter.

After the first day of sun in a long time yesterday, we're stuck with a very cloudy, grey day. Cold, too. Just after midnight last night was our high for today. The temps have been steadily dropping since then.

About 4 a.m. a huge wind storm came through and lasted for over an hour. Blew stuff everywhere. Even blew our concrete gazing ball stand over and blew the gazing ball off into the edge of our rose garden. I'm going to leave it there because it's almost as windy now as it was earlier. The weatherman says it's going to continue this way all day. Snow flurries are also on today's weather menu.

Buck just pulled our utilities bill out of the mailbox...$532 for last month. Ugh!

I'm with you, mikki. Where's my Calgon?

53 degrees F. Gray and drizzly. I love it (I don't have to be out in it, or my opinion might be different!). I think I'll fix a pot of tea to go along with my meatloaf sandwich and just enjoy the day.

Speaking of Calgon.. I have a nice deep soak tub with 6 jets to relax in, it's not a spa tub but a bathtub that is deep .
