Good morning.

We had a little snow overnight. It was visible on a few of the leaves in the back yard and on some roof tops. II said the roads were clear on his way home from work, although he was cautious approaching and crossing bridges. He just wished that other drivers would show a little more caution as they approached the bridges.

Katy Perry at the arena tonight. It will be a late night and I do expect to be busy.

Hope your weekend is off to a good start.

Good Morning

Sunny 60s in the desert with high winds on the way. After a few weeks of maddening mechanical frustrations, I seem to finally have everything up and running.  I have started cleaning and reorganizing my shop....this could be a lifetime project !  How does one person accumulate soooo much "stuff" ??  giggle...

Have a great Friday, All !!

Happy Friday!  It's sunny and in the 50s in Austin.  We should be getting colder this weekend and some of the wet may be back in the picture next week.
I've been under the weather thanks to the lovely cedar trees in this area.  So far I haven't found anything that reallly works to make me feel better when the counts are high.
We did a lot of cleaning in the house when my MIL was here last weekend.  But I still have a good bit to do.  We've only been in the house 19 years.  The amount of stuff is staggering!
Have a wonderful weekend.

I'm going to say Good morning before heading to bed.

I wasn't as busy as I expected to be during the concert, a pleasant surprise. It was still a long night as well as a late one.

Taking the dog to the groomer later this morning. Not looking forward to being out and about around 9.

Hope you are having a great weekend.

We have a forecast for a clear and sunny weekend in the PNW! Temps are expected to get to high 50s. Could Spring be on its way?

Good morning.

25 degrees this morning and I don't plan on being anywhere soon.

Planning on a quiet day other than doing some laundry.

Hope everyone has a peaceful Sunday.

Sunny 60s in the desert.  I am off on a Post Office and Dump Run, then over to the other side of the valley to help a friend put up a tower for microwave Internet....should be a fun project.

Hope everyone is having a restful Sunday

Good morning. I am up with DH for the 2nd half of his colonoscopy prep. It's 40 degrees and today should be nice. I've got a kitty in my lap and a puppy curled up right next to me.
Hope you have a great day.

Good morning.

We will be under a winter weather advisory this evening through tomorrow morning. We don't have to be anywhere tonight or tomorrow, the fridge and freezer are well stocked, so will just sit back and see what comes. Plus, it won't last all that long.

Hope your week is off to a good start.

Good Morning

Sunny 60s in the desert (I am feeling guilty reporting this every morning while so many of you are having dreadful weather).  I am going to need to drink an extra cup of ambition to get going.

Hope everyone is having a great day.

Good morning.

12 degrees and a couple of inches of snow on the ground. The sun is shining and our expected high is 25. But we'll be back in the 60s by the weekend.

Plan on making a pot of chili and puttering around inside. After so many years of having to go to work on days like this, it is really nice to know we don't have to get out.

Hope your day is a good one.

Good morning. It is 26 and icy in Austin today. We have the day off from work since we have no business being out in this weather. Ginger and I are getting a fire going. It's a lovely day to sit in front of the fire with the kitty, the puppy, my kindle, and a mug of hot chocolate.
Stay warm and safe!

Good morning.

7 degrees heading to a high of 32. Our street is clear but imagine there are places that were shady that will still have some slick spots. Schools are still closed, but some of that may be due to the cold.

We have appointments for hair cuts at noon, then plan on eating lunch out after that. Other than that, no specific plans other than staying warm.

Hope you have a good day. Stay warm and safe.

Good Morning from Southern Ontario, Lately we have been dealing with a teething baby who  also enjoys to fight sleep. My fiance and I are running on caffeine and tea . We know this wont last long but does it ever feel as though it wont stop. We are in awe of how our baby girl has grown in just 3 months. Hope you all are having beautiful days.

Good morning (I'm on Napcat time).
It was 16 in Austin when we got up and we should be getting up to about 36 this afternoon.  We had a delayed start today, but I was going to be late anyway - DH and I had appointments with the eye doctor.  Both of our prescriptions changed and we went ahead and ordered his new glasses, but I am waiting on mine.  I am at the point where I have to make a decision between single-vision lenses corrected for distance (and taking them off for up-close stuff) or progressives.  I'm going to start a new thread asking for input from anyone who wears progressives.
We kept a fire going all day yesterday.  The Stripey-cat (he's about 16) spent some time on the hearth close to the fire.  I guess the warmth felt good on old kitty bones.  This morning he was waiting on the hearth and gave us a dirty look - "Well, where's the fire?"  You should know by now that the animals are in charge at my house, but he didn't get his fire yet.  Poor old man.
Stay warm and stay safe.

Well if you just look out the window, you'd swear it was 70-80 degrees outside.  The sun is shining and it looks beautiful.  Then you walk outside and it's literally freezing - weird!

Good morning.

14 degrees but heading to 43. Maybe all the snow will melt. We're not used to this small amount of snowfall staying around more than a day.

Grocery shopping vacuuming in the plans. Doesn't mean they'll happen, though.

Have a good day.

Good Morning

I am headed down to Death Valley to spend the afternoon and evening with good friends I used to work with there.  Looking forward to visiting.  Partly cloudy 70s with winds later.



Have a great day

Good morning!  We are starting to thaw out a bit.  It was only 29 this morning and we should hit the 40s by this afternoon.
