63 when I got up this morning.  The sun came up a little late, or maybe I was up a little early. 

It was too early to get up and too late to go back to sleep, so I woke up Little Gertie and we settled down to read.  That's another Kindlevantage.  I never could read on first waking until I got Little Gertie.  My eyes just wouldn't adjust.  Now, it's not a problem.  I don't even have to adjust the size of the font.

    Good Morning, it is already 73 here in Miami and another sunny day.  Today is grocery day so I need to go make my list out and get going.

    33 currently, with a high of 50 expected in northern WV.  Have a job to finish up, then I think I'll settle in for a day of cross stitching and old movies.  Hope everyone has a great day.

    Good Morning!  33 now in Arlington, an hour later than Betsy's post. (for those of you who are not familiar with the area, in the real world we're probably not more than 10 miles from each other, if that.)  Supposed to make 50 today -- we'll see.  Though it is fairly sunny out.  Hubby got up and left at 7:15. . .had to do stuff at the church.  I stayed in bed until 8:30. . . .

    Sunny and a whole 34 degrees here in the Blue Ridge mountains.  I've been sleeping almost non-stop since yesterday morning, but I think I'm almost over this nasty virus, YAY!  Today is laundry day, it wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to go outside to get into the basement  :-\  I think I'll wait until it warms up a bit!

    Good morning from Colorado. It's a cool 12 degrees here this morning. I think we got about a foot of snow last night and it's still coming down. Looks like I will be making a second pot of coffee and curling up with Ken!!

    Right now it's gloomy, chilly, and windy.  High today supposed to be 52.  High tomorrow 19?!  I just walked a block to Ace Hardware.  On the way I found a $10 bill !  Good start to the day.

    Thanks for the good wishes, Betsy!  I  got my SantaKat because I wanted to blend in with the other christmassy avatars, and he seemed to fit me the best - he doesn't look like he quite gets why he's all dressed up!  :D

    Sounds like Wichita.  High yesterday - 61.  High to day - 44.  High tomorrow - 31.  And we have high wind warnings.

    Isn't this just great,  The forecast is now High to day - 38.  High tomorrow - 26.  With 11 to night and Ice/snow/wind.  Driving to work tomorrow is going to be fun.

    Good morning!  It's 10:45 am and 48.4 degrees, sunny and clear here in Virginia Beach, VA.  We are going to the theater in Norfolk today for a performance of Cirque Dreams, Jungle Fantasy.  A wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

    Good morning everybody, it is 48 and overcast here in Alabama. Chance of rain tonight. My 14 year old grandson is playing his trumpet at church today. He lives in Norfolk, VA so NiNa is bummed  out that she can't be there.  :(

    Good morning everyone, it is about 70 here in central Florida in the late am. Just got back from my  cruise so have lots of catching up on the boards to do. I should be decorating the Christmas tree and grocery shopping.

    Cloudy and in the 60's in Jacksonville today.  Me and Brigit (my K) did three worship services this morning.  My oldest daughter, who's home from college, has started reading the first Southern Vampire Mystery on Brigit, and kept wanting to steal her during church!  Not a good idea since I was using my K for my sermon notes.   ;) 

    Hope everyone is staying warm and keeping their electricity!

    ITS SNOWING IN LAS VEGAS!!!!

    Got up this morning and drove my brother to work this morning and all it was rain. Came home and crashed in bed for a while before having to pick him up for lunch. Then as I left the house I realized it was snowing. Immediately I went up stairs and told my mom that she had to pick mt brother up since I have NEVER driven in snow. No she told me to drive. So ended up doing what I usually do when I afraid driving. I call a friend or family member to stay on speakerphone with me as I drove. It was not fun.

    The snow sticks on my side of town, but its barely doing so.

    Snowing in Las Vegas and it is in the 50s here in Maine and everything is melting! Cloudy skies and dreary. Apparently, lots of folks in southern Maine (York County) are still without power. What a weekend!

    PS, the guy who won on Survivor lives right near me and teaches at the high school in the next town. No, I don't know him. In a bit of trivia, Julie Berry, who was on Survivor in 2004 (and dated Jeff Probst for awhile afterwards) was a student of the current winner.

    I'm happy to hear you have power, Leslie.  I heard it might be a week before they are able to restore power to the affected areas.  The only good news is that the weather is warming up. 

    It was 69 this morning on the treasure coast.  By the time I got back from picking up my granddaughter, I took off my jacket.  We had breakfast, and I changed to a light t-shirt because it warmed up so fast.

    Well, I tried all morning to get on here and now it is mid-afternoon! So glad the boards are back!!

    After temps in the high 70's yesterday and last night, we are now at 37 degrees and under a winter weather advisory, with freezing drizzle and rain in the forecast for tonight. This 2 days summer, 2 days winter and back again is going to give us all pneumonia! Gotta love Texas weather! ;D

    Uffda!  Windchill was -27 this morning.  It is finally 'cold' in Minnesota.  You haven't experienced cold until you can take a deep breath and have your nostrils freeze shut.  No, I'm not kidding.

    Woo Hoo, only 4 more months until the sun shines again and the snow starts to melt.  This stuff sucks.
