Evening all:

Chuck: I agree with you about the weather forcast. We did get about 5-6 inches yesterday. However it really didnt start snowing really hard until around 1pm. Well everyone thought we should close the office and cancel the doctors schedules...so we did. I'm not complaining about getting a 1/2 snow day, but I really didnt think that we needed to close the office that early...I think they jumped the gun a little to soon on that one. So we got out at 1pm yesterday, and I got home first and had to shovel the driveway should have stayed at work...


Nothing much going on here....just tired and wishing it was the weekend.

later

Well for once, it worked well in our benefit! We actually already had about 1 1/2 inches on the ground when I got up at 4 and ended up with over 7 1/2 total. The govt actually leaned forward and closed us before I left home at 4:45 AM! Now, they got next to nothing in DC, only on the grass, so next time they won't close. And we will have to come in only to have to trek back home in a blizzard. That's what happened the last time and why we got closed as early as we did.
It was icy at home this morning, but because it was above freezing in DC and they didn't get the snow, we opened 'on time'. They forget us in the 'burbs beyond the rich enclaves. Our county closed schools for today yesterday because of the weather we got and the temps were going to be below freezing and that would lead to ice.

Me too.... Although I shouldn't complain, heading to Florida again on the 16th for 2 weeks. Out of all the dozens of trips to the world, we have yet to see F&G because it was always around Mark's busy season with weddings. This year we get to go..

That would be great. I'm hoping to get the earliest check in time when online comes available. We leave Australia on 28 November so I'll be off-line for a few days after that date.

But on a more cheery note, almost 9 months away
I am sorry to hear that happened for you. Making that choice is never easy, I've had to make it twice and it's horrible. 17 is a good age for a cat, though. We got to 15 with our first dog together and even after four years I still question my choice (it was the right one as she had cancer and her body was shutting down, but still, you always pray for a miracle).

I love reading about everyone's snow falls!

We have a cyclone that has just been named off the coast (about 800klms) from us. It's unlikely to cause any problems for us, thankfully. Depending on it's path it will stay well off the coast and just cause some wind or it could head south and reach landfall. Some media reports are suggesting it could turn and move towards Vanuatu or New Caledonia. I'm hoping it doesn't head to the south of us because it means that it will suck any potential rainfall away with it. Cyclones to the north of us are good as it brings rain and we've had a dismal wet season - only half of our average wet/summer season rainfall has fallen.

This is the first week of Autumn (Fall) and it's still warm and humid. It won't really cool down here for us until late April or early May.

It's Friday morning here and I should get going. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Oh, I love Flower & Garden!! Though, II can see the timing being a conflict for someone working with weddings! We are going the last week this year. Usually, we like to go the first week of May, but Dave was supposed to be on a business trip. Now that's canceled due to sequester, but its too late to change everything now! I think you will enjoy it!!

That would be awesome to meet! We check into Boardwalk on the 11th and check out on the 19th. 8 days!! It's our first stay at Boardwalk.

I can't wait to hear about the little food additions this year! Take good notes!
