to the bolded. 70 is usually cold to me, however, the humidity has been soooo high this week with our weather that I have had to turn the air on to get the humidity out to cool things off. In fact, at church today I turned on the air in our Sunday school classrooms because it felt hot, but the thermostat said 69 degrees. I bumped it down to 67 just to take the humidity out of the air and make things comfortable.

Don't even talk about hair styling this week! LOL

We have gotten the rain tonight and I can feel the temperatures dropping and humidity lowering, Yay! The front is coming through.

I am on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Tomorrow will be COLD for us at 50 degrees!

If the weatherman is right, we've already hit the high for tomorrow (mid 40s). We shall see. DD is still hoping and praying the freezing rain/sleet comes early tomorrow and that we don't even have to leave the house. I'm thinking we'll actually make it to school, and they'll call it early in the morning. That's IF anything happens at all. Hard to believe I had shorts and a t-shirt on this time yesterday. Crazy weather. Nothing new here, though.

So far so good. A few of the very rural, northeastern parishes were released from school early. It felt like the entrance ramp to the interstate was a little slippery when I left school. It's been raining all day. Temps should drop to freezing within an hour or so, and it should stay that way until sunrise. THEN, they are predicting temps to drop down to freezing around lunch tomorrow. I just love our weather. The kids and I got home a little while ago. I couldn't help but notice DH left the thermostat turned up to 72. He is a big bear of a man. If he would just wear some clothing around the house as opposed to a tshirt and shorts, he might be able to regulate his body temperature. Meanwhile, the rest of us are stuffy and dried out. Gosh I just want to pinch him.

You folks talking about the freezing rain and sleet, wear your seatbelts....



Had a weird flash freeze last week. Temps rose too quickly to 40° and the road surface was still cold when it started raining. Wife and mother-in-law crawled out without a scratch. She lost complete control.

So much for being car payment free. $384 left to pay on the loan. You win some, you lose some, I call this a win with them crawling out without a scratch.

Oh no, mrodgers! Thank goodness she's okay. Bummer about the car note, though. Where in the country is that picture? We don't get any kind of winter precipitation that white? Ours is inevitably freezing rain/sleet. Then it just turns to slush.

The kids and I are home today. Almost all the parishes around us closed schools today and I'm glad they didn't wait. Roads looked great first thing this morning. Now? Not so much. The freezing rain and sleet started after the sun came up. Local police have closed all interstate ramps due to accidents and deicing efforts. Most of the overpasses in and around town have been closed as well. They should reopen once the crews finish sanding/salting. I can't believe they didn't do all this yesterday in anticipation. That's why we act so crazy when there is a threat of winter weather around here. No one knows how to act. We do know we are supposed to go buy essentials, though, so I'm sure all local grocery stores are completely out of bread, milk, and eggs.

Meanwhile, DH has to figure a way to get across the river so he can go to work. Not sure how he plans to make that happen considering most bridges have been closed.

Good luck! Schools were closed here last week. We are still seeing rain and quite a bit of flooding. There is only one school still closed and that is because a levee breached and the school is flooded. I can't wait to see the sunshine again!

I noticed y'all are getting more rain down south. We are out one more day for icy weather. I really think the roads are fine for most people, but there are lots of people without power due to broken limbs and power lines. People in the more rural areas of the parish may have trouble getting to schools. Oh, and the interstate entrance and exit ramps I use to get to school both had wrecks on them at various times yesterday. I don't mind the cold but I'm really ready for things to dry out.

I had to get up and turn the air conditioner on last night. It was 70 and although I freeze during the day if it's below 75, I can't sleep unless if the temperature is above 68. The weather is so variable here, I think I typically run the air conditioner almost every month out of the year.

Just the basics:
Are two-year-olds too young to go to Disney? It depends upon their temperament. One way to find out: take them there. After all, they're only young for a short time. You're sure to enjoy your trip if you plan ahead! AND - don't forget those all-important dining reservations; they fill up so fast it's ridiculous. Have I forgotten anything? Oh yes - I'd advise you to carry a small purse or bag for loose items so you don't lose them on rides. You'll have a great vacation if you follow my advice!

That picture is just a dusting, LOL. The week before the news was calling for 2 inches of snow or so. They lost it. I found it while clearing the driveway, the 2 inches they lost was underneath the other 6 inches, LOL. The next day we had another 5 or 6 inches. This is about an hour and a half north of Pittsburgh, or more important, about an hour and a half south of Erie since this is the weather we get. I am just north of the line of barely any snow and a ton of snow that is in Pennsylvania. A 6 inch snowstorm is just a dusting to me.

We don't get slush. Slush means it is warming up and everything is finally breaking up and thawing out. Two years ago, we got dumped on and I didn't see the road surface on the major roadways for almost 2 months.

In 2007 when I bought that car in the picture, it was 80° on January 30th while I was shopping around. When I test drove that car the next day, I was standing right next to the salesman literally inches away talking to him and I couldn't see him with the snow coming down.

When we moved into the house, the neighbor warned me about the snow drifting over the road on the other side of his house (out in the country, all fields and the road is a dead end.) I said, no problem, I've got the 4x4 truck and I'll just get a running start from my house. He said, been there done that in his full size F250 Ford. His truck was stuck there for 3 days.

We're supposed to have a sunny day tomorrow. The sun has not been out for a full day here since Christmas! I love cool/cold weather but not with all of the cloudiness and rain.

I thought the same thing.
Until I had a hysterectomy, I was cold all the time. My first hot flash was in the recovery room!
