City bylaws tell you what you can put in your garage???

No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

It's a twenty or so car garage. When people start storing stuff in those garages some folks start storing gasoline and other inflammable stuff and it becomes a fire hazard. If the garage catches fire, I'm going to have smoke coming in my basement.

My next door neighbour would probably store crap in the garage if he could. Now, the condo association can tell folks and then just remove stuff if they don't remove it themselves.

It's still balmy. I haven't had to close the windows for more than a few minutes on mornings. If this is Global Warming, then maybe it's not so bad.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

It's 48F this morning, heading toward the 70's this afternoon. The TV weatherman yesterday noted that on Jan. 19, 1977 there was light snow in south Florida, from Tampa on down.
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

Condo associations govern the use of their property via rules and regulations set by the Board of Trustees. These rules cover safety, appearance of the property and quiet enjoyment of your home.

Right now we have a couple of inches of snow that fell while I was sleeping. The perfect excuse for cancelling my appointment. And the temp is a balmy 28F. Looking forward to tomorrow's game. GO PATS!!!

Just starting to snow. They already called off school for the day, expecting up to 8 inches.
Don't let yesterday take up too much of today. Will

28F, still and quiet out...the snow bested 2 feet. There is at least another 6 inches of snow on the car. Haven't seen how the roads are , yet. Hopefully the plows worked all night.

There was about another inch of snow overnight so we have an accumulation of about 3 inches. We are also supposed to have freezing rain this morning (hasn't started) and then rain. However, it is still below zero so I am not getting my hopes up on the rain.

DH just called to say he is on his way home - they have put the assistance buses on essential only and they only keep so many drivers around per day. I am happy as I have to go see Dad today and can not drive in this.
