Batting down the hatches...we're supposed to have 20 cm (~8 inches) of snow overnight. Then Friday it is supposed to rain. Good thing I have lots of food on board <g>.

We only got about 15 cm of that snow, but it's raining and the icicles (2 feet long and more) are falling off the roofs. It's a really yucky mess of snow and slush and ice. We are expecting 30 - 40 mm of rain! That's a lot of water to get in a day or so (~ 1.2 - 1.7 inches).

Finally, something besides clouds, grey skies and rain.

Today is gloriously beautiful. About 70F and wonderfully sunny. I can almost hear the daffodils popping and blooming.

Glenn and I hopped on the Harley and drove south to Paris, Tennessee to get some barbecue sauce and have some ice cream.

It was a wonderful ride. All told, we took a three-hour drive. Now we'll be chompin' at the bit to get out every time it gets the least bit sunny.
