Good morning everyone!

I've had a couple days away. I couldn't last much longer! I've been busy searching for permanent employment while at work. I have about two months left on my contract here, so I need to take some time every morning to search for other positions. So far there have been a few positions of interest. We'll see....

I would be re-missed if I did not say that yesterday was the first day that I could "feel" spring. It was still a little chilly, but the wind had that springtime freshness. It certainly is right around the corner. So close that we are "springing" our clocks ahead this weekend. I did not realize such until today.

Well, I hope everyone has a great Thursday. One more workday left after today. We are descending toward the weekend!

So, I went downstairs, got my morning cup of Joe and turned on what else of course, None other than the Weatherchannel.

Well Lord behold, they were calling for 7"-14" of snow, exactly right over where I live... I about jumpped for joy. (Now of course, if you know me, then you would know that I have been hopeing for some snow all winter and this would finially be it)! So far this year and all of last year has been a complete bust for any snow.

So, I went outside and it was raining, and I took the wife to work and then I went to work myself. With baited breath, I have been looking out the window all day waiting for the snow, all it was doing was raining. I checked Accuweather, Foots forecast and the weatherbug, and they all said that right around noon, we were going to get dumped on. I left work, hurried up home, made a fire in the fireplace and turned on the TV to the weather channel and they had revised the forecast for my area to 5"-7" of snow. I looked outside and it was still raining.

I left the house went to pick up the wife and it was still raining. The idiots have completely gotten the entire weather forecast 100% wrong. Snow, what snow, all I see is rain, rain, rain.... I'm a little peeved right about now. For 5 days now, all they have been talking about was the impending storm, got everyone all worked up and what happend, nothing! I GOT A ROCK...... It was a bigtime bust of a snow event... Again, another yaer of no snow,,,I'm bummed out!

so what are you trying to say?
I can send you a truck load of snow, but you will have to stop with the rain thing first!

claireloveschristmas, it's so good to see you again! hope all is well & don't work too hard sweety!

CM3, sorry you couldn't sleep last night. you were just excited about the good news from the vet yesterday, weren't you?

I hope everyone is safe & warm in the snow storm.

ya' know how I've told y'all my job isn't the greatest? (fyi, I'm a florist) here's a prime example of why; I will start by saying that I cannot handle anyone harming a child or elderly person or anyone who is defenseless. I take it very personally (I guess that's the right word??) & cannot get it out of my head. I have to make a casket piece today for a 5 YEAR OLD!! this child is gone due to the horrific acts of an adult! I am in mourning for this child, deeply. I will not go into detail about it on here. I try to keep a Christian attitude about it, but I am finding it almost impossible to NOT want harm to come to this person. I do not know this person personally. unfortunately, I learn of this type of news all too often in this business. we are usually the 2nd call made, 1st the funeral home then us. if you go to my FB, go to my likes, click on Lancaster funeral home, then obits, you will see this beautiful little girl's pic. I hope that doesn't sound morbid. the only comfort I find right now is knowing the authorities have the person in custody & the little girl is in Heaven now, probably w/ little angel wings.

I will apologize now for this post, as I am afraid this maybe too much for some. I am extremely close to so many of you & feel as though I can talk to y'all. FB is not the same for me. THIS is my family.
please pray for this family in their time of deep sorrow.


my love for each of you abounds & again please accept my apologies for such a grim post.
That's so sad, merry. I understand how you feel. Sending good thoughts and prayers to you & the family of the little angel. Xo

You can get it for iPad---in fact, I was listening on my iPad as I posted!

Same here! I liked my Kindle Fire, but my MIL got an iPad and was showing off everything she could do with it, so I caved in and bought one. It's my favorite toy!
Say, if you have an iPad, I'll have to call you on FaceTime sometime and we can have a video chat! I love having the capability, but don't have anyone to talk to. Same with the video hangouts and chat on Google+.

I bought a stylus to type with, and it was easier to hit the right "keys." But now I'm a traitor and use my iPad or laptop.

This is so disturbing ... but don't apologize for sharing it with us. Spider Robinson says that shared grief is diminished, and shared joy is increased---a good definition of MMC. Take comfort in knowing that she will appreciate the beauty and blessings and tears that you put into her casket piece.

Not much snow overnight, but it's here this morning! It's supposed to fall throughout today and tonight. The roads were just wet when I came to work, but I'm worried about their deteriorating during the day. Cross your fingers that I may be able to get out of here early today before the roads are snow-covered and crowded. The temp is right around freezing, so while the falling snow makes a pretty picture, I'd rather be seeing it out of my own windows instead of the office's. (And the heat isn't working right here today.)
