Started today with sunshine, 38 degrees and bacon and eggs for breakfast. I went to the gym for a couple of hours, came home and watched a couple hours of Olympics on Nothing But Crap (NBC) while it clouded up in the afternoon. Went to the Supermarket and when I came out it was hailing like crazy. By the time I got home there was about 1/2 inch hail on the road. The temperature dropped to 35 degrees and then it started snowing. Got about an inch of that on top of the hail. Then it changed graupel for about another hour. I just heard a snowplow going down the main street behind us. It is 8:25 PM and if this freezes tonight it will be bad going to work at 5:30 tomorrow morning. Spring is just around the corner. Both of the bikes are ready

the temps got high enough, that SWMBO'd said "clean out the rain gutters"

my daughter takes good care of me, so I did.

She cooks the food, I wash the dishes.... I think that is fair....

The automatic dishwasher gave up the ghost last summer.... and she is too frugal to pay full price.... waiting for an inventory clearance sale.

Weather.com says we're going to have winter again tomorrow. That's not fair, we already had winter last month...on a Saturday, I think it was.

Woke up to 6 inches of snow at least, expecting some more tonight. I used the front loader and cleared my drive and yard except for about an inch and placed it in the river.

I feel like I live in the tropics, except it's cold. It has rained at 4pm every day for the last 2 weeks except for last Monday. Most days it has rained almost all day and night but if it stops it will start again at 4 pm.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
