Our temp is in the high 20s F and it's snowing. Traffic at rush hour is at a standstill as the roads are icy. So is sitting in traffic wishing she was home (she usually is by now).

I hope she has enough gas in the car to keep warm AND get home. I've been in that situation a few times, usually in the Interstate outside of Laramie, WY.

I think the weather tonight is going to make watching the Lunar Eclipse impossible.

The thermometer by my window is reading 70. A little cool for opening it, since I'm sitting here in shirtsleeves and shorts (and warm slippers). It was nice and sunny after a gray day yesterday.

We're getting the Pineapple Express. Lots of moisture from the tropics.

As another California girl, I'm sick to death of the unrelenting rain for the last 4 days.........it's been pouring here non stop. I know, I know.........we are all spoiled whiners here.........whaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. I need my sun back, this SAD thing is getting to me. The special light on my desk, contrary to all the commercial hype on them, is just not cutting it. I may have a hissy fit soon.

The UK is experiencing the worst December weather in 40 yrs, where I live the temps did not get above -8c yesterday and dropped to -13c last night, we had heavy snow on Friday but not much since then. Most of the airports are in trouble, my wife likes to make sure the ducks get a feed
