I would like to see a pic Dave. LOL

I wanted to tease up a white punk rock wig, wear white capri pants & a black v neck top, & be Theresa Caputo, The Long Island Medium. Hahahaha. But, the kids don't come here.

Would love to see both, Dave and Cerise!

We have 43, the wind's died down, and it's supposed to be in the 20’s again tonight.

The streets there were icy; we tried one hotel, which had people sleeping in the lobby, so we slept in the car, with the candle burning, though I don't think DH really slept much.

Take care.
Thank you for the tip! I'm worried about going to work tomorrow and leaving my MIl and child at home, our phone lines are down (she doesn't have a cell phone) but Im sure they will be ok for the 9 hours I'm away. It is supposed to get icy tonight. The kids are loving it.. no school all week.. to be a kid again!

Watching all that snow you are getting. Sorry to hear about your water. Hope all the residents are comfortable in these conditions too. I remember growing up in SW Minnesota, we saw alot of snow. I've been through alot of snow storms but there's something special about being snowed in.



Today in SE S.D. it was the warmest day of the week thus far. A high of 61F & a sun shiney day. Temp.'s will dip down in the 30's for the overnight. It's hard to believe it's daylight savings time this weekend, already it's time to set the clocks back 1 hour.

Fantastic tip, I forgot about this one. I have coffee cans in the car with candles, waterproof matches, dryer lint (for firestarters) and the little Bic lighters. It's getting tough to find a metal coffee can.

It was beautiful today and was about 68 degrees. Nice night for trick or treaters too. They can go around without coats! Usually we have rain or snow on Halloween!
