I was up late yesterday till 5am, so I slept pretty late today until 1:15pm.

It's 75F out right now, with a 9 mph wind coming from the southwest. A low tonight in the upper 50's is expected.


Wonderful Florida weather! Windows open, fans pulling fresh air into the house, just wonderful!

Freezing rain. Alerts, warnings. It's like a bottle out there.

Freezing rain here too Rock. I hate freezing rain---when the 1998 Ice Storm hit, we were without power for 12 days. We found out how much water 6 dogs drink each day. It was not fun, even with a generator.

It was an absolutely perfect day, sunshine and mid 70's. Short sleeve shirt, shorts, wide open windows. It may be out of season, but I'll take it!

It is supposed to pass over by midnight, thankfully. Looks nasty out there.

I "skated" out to the barn to give the girls their evening "cocktail" of warm water with a tsp of apple cider vinegar and some food before bed. I was afraid I would slip on the concrete slab/step outside the door and crack my head--being that I'm here alone, and Cliff, the Saint, doesn't get to go out to see the hens, I would have been SOL.

I have already emailed the person who arranges spares to tell him that if this doesn't let up and I'm still "skating," I'm not making the trip into Ottawa to curl tomorrow night. I hate this weather!

You need some "Yak Trax" they are great on ice. Even a small throw rug on the slab would help with some traction.

It's been snowing off and on today, loverly!

Love my Yak Trax, but you need to watch your feet. I went for a walk in mine, and did not realize I'd walked out of one. Had to get in the car when I got home and go looking for it. Found it.
