Ouch! And with all that honking I would have a massive headache by the time I got there, LOL.

Speaking of rain, it has actually warmed up to 33 degrees here now and is raining. Darn weather can't make up its mind. First snow, then freezing temps, then it warms up, then it rains, then does it all over again. All in about three days span each time, LOL. Been a crazy December...

Gloomy and raining. After yesterday's ice storm and freezing temps, it's now about 55F and raining like crazy. Began during the night and I've already poured 1 1/2 inches of rain out of our gauge. I slogged my way down the driveway to get today's newspaper. Looks like the wave of rain will be gone in a few hours.

Here in the Pacific Northwest the weather has beaten us into submission. Folks would welcome a few weeks of steady rain.

I'll trade you Katie, its cold as cold can be here today. Coldest December in ages (can't remember how long they said) after the WARMEST November. Sheesh! The predicted high today is a bit warmer than it has been its currently -28C (-18.4F) and its going up to -26C (-14.8F). I'm getting a bit frosty around the edges here. And oh my oh my I'm not looking forward to seeing our gas bill for this month!

Overnight icestorm caused havoc on the roadways--slippin and slidin--multiple spinouts all over the place. There was even a deadly crash.
homecook's daughter was rear-ended with her dear children in the car--please keep them in her prayers.

Now, steady rain. Temp is in 40s and windy 15-25mph.
