Re: check in time

After all the snow and days of bitter cold, it warmed up over night
and is raining at 35 degrees.  What a mess!  The ground is so
cold that the rain is freezing as it falls - at least it is not building
up ice on trees.  There is a slight glaze on trees, but I figure that
is because they are so cold from the days of freezing temps.  It's
supposed to get warmer all day - up to about 40 degrees - and
keep on raining.  We'll  see what happens next.  Thank goodness
there is nowhere we absolutely have to go today.  I would have gone
to PetSmart to stock up on cat food - we're not out, but we are out
of their favorite kinds.  Tough luck. They'll just have to make do with
what we have.  They're all too fat anyway, so it won't hurt them to
live without their favorites.  Still, at Christmas...

At least you are windless- just think how cold it would be otherwise!
You best order yourself some extra woolies!
