    Jan, have I told you lately that I hate you?   ;)  (Looking out at the rain).

    It's 69 going up to 80 on a cloudy, soon to be rainy, day in Jacksonville.  My daughter is home with something that sounds just like what you have, KatieKat.  I hope you feel better soon! 

    I am off to lead a Bible study with some of my older (80+) church members.  They are great!  We have the most fascinating conversations.

    Hope everyone stays warm and dry and safe from tornadoes!!

    I predict a lot of people will be sick this weekend around here.  It was freezing the last two days and today it's 59 at 10:20.  Practically balmy.  But wet and breezy. . .people will get sick. . . . .it always happens. . . .I know they say that's not what causes colds, but there's a clear correlation in my mind.  It'll cool down again in the next couple of days and people Will Get Sick.  Mark my Words.  (Geez, I sound like my mother. . . .)

    Good Morning, All!

    I know all you folks up north will laugh, but we had snow in Austin last night and now the wind chill is making it in the low 20s.  That's pretty cold for us!

    I am in a dentist chair right now, getting my first crown. The drilling is done - so far so good.

    I'd rather be Kindling.

    I'm glad it's nice weather for your Disney vacation. 

    I think it was 69 here this morning, but that was so long ago, I don't remember.  It's gotten very warm and I even thought briefly about turning on the a/c.

    Well, guys it appears that all the cold weather has gone south!! This time yesterday I was enjoying 78 degrees in Houston. As I was leaving there yesterday afternoon the cold front hit and the temps dropped 20 degrees in about 20 minutes! By the time I got home last night it was 40!! In Longview now it is currently 34 with a wind chill of 25. They are predicting a mixture of rain/sleet/snow today and tonight. BUT, they are saying sunshine and high 50's for tomorrow!

    Good morning, woke up to another stormy, rainy day. It is 45 with a cold front moving in today and chances of *snow*.  We are under a winter weather advisory which is a big deal in Alabama. Things are so slow at work I decided to take a mental health day.  ;)

    Again God forgot where he placed Louisiana! Its FREEZING 35 degrees with a chance of snow and or rain. My parents come in this afternoon for christmas and its warmer in Philly (where they live) than here!

    Chance of snow the whole time they are here.. wow.

    I'm 2/3rds finished The Story of Edgar Stewelle. Sad sad book. I am a dog lover so I am loving Almondine but I don't want to get attached. I saw Ole Yeller too many times..

    Me thinks I need to read some Christopher Moore after this and the last book were both downers. Maybe get into the Christmas spirit (something I have been sorely lacking) by reading the Stupidest Christmas Angel.

    It's a balmy 73 here in Jacksonville, which is higher than the high predicted for today.  We are in for tons of rain and thunderstorms while the cold front comes our way.  It definitely won't be anywhere close to 73 tomorrow!

    My daughter finished her exams yesterday and comes home from college today for the holidays!  Of course, she's in love with my Kindle and will be trying to "borrow" Brigit all the time.   :-\

    Hope your day is merry!

    Well, God did remember where he put Vermont and I am looking out at trees covered with ice after a day of horrendous rain and melting of lots of snow and the re-emergence of the brown ground once again.  Like Leslie, we got a big turnaround and all the snow we had, along with -7 degree temps. of a couple of days ago, went away.  Now, the cold is back and the weekend is looking like more precip. 

    Sounds yucky, Ethan, but on a brighter note, love your Avatar, love Marty Feldman!  Thanks for brightening my day.

    I'm here in Alexandria sharing coffee with my Kboards friends, hubby has gone out to run, bless his heart, I think I'll have a pastry.   ::)
