KathleenA - ugh to the sinus infection - YAY! You were the 5000th post in this thread! Cool!

I hesitate to say this too loudly...it appears that the weatherman was right. The weather is warming up today. Its about -2C right now, the sky is clear and very blue. My Mom's house still doesn't have a working furnace but I'm hopeful that at least soon I won't have to stress about the pipes bursting!

I was right that it would warm up once the wind shifted to the south. The thermometer I keep on the window sill by the open window reads 75F! I don't feel much of the breeze, it's SSW @ 8.

Partly cloudy makes for a pretty sky. Gorgeous!

YAY! YAY! That calls for a cake and ice cream celebration, doesn't it???

No pipes bursting! YAY! YAY! Twice the reason for cake and ice cream!

Sinus infections are dreadful. Cake and ice cream make them better.

I like the way you think! Both of those things deserve a cake and ice cream celebration! I'm currently cleaning my oven so no cake will be baked here for a few hours. Maybe I should go bake at Mom's house...that would warm it up more til the freaking furnace gets fixed! LOL!

Kur, Rain is simply "Liquid Sunshine."
Hehe... my vitamin d levels would disagree with you... I do love rain... in moderation... Where is Seattle's moderator?

No rain yet today, but no blue sky either.... I think the sky is blue still... right?
