I think I've had MY fill of it for this year...how about you?
Yes, we have school delays out the wazoo (and a few closings) as well.
And to think that tomorrow, we'll be right back into the mid-40s...again.
This is just plain nuts.
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us mostly cloudy skies, early fog scattered about, and snow covering the roads from yesterday. so you KNOW what that means...DRIVE DEFENSIVELY!
Temps will top out around 33 degrees, BUT (uh oh), we'might see some freezing rain later this afternoon before it transitions to ALL rain (...joy...). That might make the commute a bit "touchy", so be careful.
|HOW "comforting" is this stuff?|
*** First off of the snow-crusted street is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:

USEFUL would be a godsend these days)

*** Next up, as you know by now, actor Albert Finney passed away at the age of 82.
Skyfall was his last film appearance, and until I saw the credits, I didn't even know it was him.
BTW, his role as "Kincaid" (caretaker of the Skyfall Lodge in Scotland) was very good, and lent much to the history of James Bond as a youth.
And, I didn't even hear about this, but actress Julie Adams passed at the age of 92.
|Adams w/ The Creature (Ricou Browning)|
When I saw Jennifer Connelly , she reminded me a lot of Julie Adams.
*** Next, time to stop on by our "Kitten Corner"...
|I know it feels like somebody's watching me...|
|Hey, everyone has an "oops" moment, right?|
No damage to anyone or anything, but a few frazzled nerves (of mine) and one scared cat (for a while). He does get a case of the "derps" from time to time.
Violet just takes things a bit easier, and is less overanxious. Talk about contrasts.
*** Next up, let's check back in with "Midnight and Whiskers"...
|Yo, the sun is out. Time to get warm.|
|I know...I'm loving this as long as I can.|
I think he's only in it for the treats...such a "mercenary"...heh.
*** Last back to the snow shovel collection...it's actually soothing to avoid the news over the weekend. I actively TRY to avoid it.
|I like a BETTER start to a day, like a sunrise.|
(I like to see if THEIR guess is as good as mine...HA!)
I used to have to drive in almost any sort of weather, so I guess it's one of those "habits" you get into over time.
ABOUT it. With Wifey on the road daily (for her work), I think I am more concerned than when I traveled about on the east coast.
I'm a worrier, and I always make sure she has the best opportunity to come back home safely.
But, I can't be everywhere, so I rely on her judgment (and my nit-picking) about taking it easy when on the roads.
Concern and care (for another, especially a loved one) do go hand-in-hand, and that's something I think we can ALL get on board with...at any age, because it allows us to become more than what we used to be.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
