I just know it's freezing!!!! It's probably about 20 degrees. The windchill is 7. We've got a blizzard going on here, I can't even see the house across the street. We're supposed to get a few more inches of snow but it's mostly blowing......high winds.

Katie: I lived with your kind of weather, propably worse, for 45 years so I know what you're going through and I can sympathize (NE Nebraska). What we're having right now in SoCal is most unusual, as Babetoo and Roadfix will testify to, but we're gonna enjoy it while we've got it. If I could ship it to you I certainly would! Hang in there. This, too, shall pass. (What dummy came up with that line?) LOL

It's been snowing here since last night. We've probably gotten about 6 more inches. The roads are terribly slippery. They've only plowed our street once today and that was about 8 am. Ds just got to work and he said the roads were terrible. It's about 20 degrees with windchill of 8.
A good day to just stay in......

Practically balmy today. Quite a contrast to the last week. It's sunny with little or no wind. Slight breeze, if anything. Humidity is below 30% and the temp has soared all the way to 42F. I might have to drag out my shorts.

The outside kitties are playing in the leaves and sunning themselves and enjoying a water bowl that isn't frozen solid. This is the most exercise they've had in a week.

Still snowing as of 4:47 pm. A kind neighbor plowed the driveway earlier, wonder if he will do it again after the snow stops. We don't even know who did the plowing, we never saw the truck come up the driveway. Perhaps it is the neighbor who we got Tuxie from.

It's 2:30 p.m. and the indoor-outdoor thermometer says it's 78.4 degrees in the shade in the backyard --
but it feels warmer as the sun is very intense this afternoon.

Slight breeze, blue skies, blue water, as seen from our balcony:
