I am hearing about some heavy snow for some of you all. We are suppose to get in the mid 70's up to 80 degrees today. I wouldn't mind having a little of your snow here! For now I will enjoy the mild temps to get some outdoor work done and ride my bike!

Stay safe in the harsh weather headed your way!

Uggggh (Is that what Charlie Brown says, lol)? I wish it was here, we have yet to get any amount of snow this winter.... It is starting to appear as another bust again for this year; snow-less again (As I am saying it just like Eeyore.....)

Just winding down from work now, I hope everyone has a good night.

Don't you just love it when a person in the public light thinks he or she speaks for the public?

Here is the list in order from most hated to least hated.


1. Lance Armstrong
2. Manti Te'o
3. Tiger Woods
4. Jay Cutler
5. Metta World Peace (what the heck kind of name is that?)
6. Alex Rodriguez
7. Michael Vick
8. Kurt Busch
9. Kobe Bryant
Tony Romo

I am not saying I agree or disagree with this list, I am just sharing it because I thought it was interesting and never even knew this list existed.

Winter storm watch for

Significant snowstorm threatening Thursday night and Friday.

An Alberta clipper currently tracking southeastward through the Dakotas is expected to track across the us midwest tonight and Thursday then track just south of Lake Erie on Friday. This clipper may intensify into a winter storm as it approaches Southern Ontario.
Many parts of Southern and Eastern Ontario may receive 15 cm (about 5 inches)of snow from this storm by Friday evening. Some areas may receive higher amounts, with 25 cm (about 10 inches) not out of the question

not quite as much snow as you, but still a fair pile

I like the versatility, especially in light of our not having access to all our kitchen "stuff" when we begin the remodeling.

Let's check.....

Yep. The calendar agrees.

We can also all agree on the importance of the following:
Days to the Season: 279
Days to Christmas Day: 321
We are but a scant five days off now from the second of the Milestones on our journey to Christmas, the 1/4 Season marker.
(So close to the start of the 2nd quarter!)

Warm weather (for February) continued yesterday but it will take a cool, wet turn today.
We stand just under 40 degrees here in the capital city at this hour.

Have a Totally and Thoroughly Thrilling Thursday, Folks.
And start getting yourself mentally ready for a Wonderous Weekend just ahead!
