Geez FD, I hope you didn't get 'brain freeze' from eating it too fast. :yelsick:

We had 60 degree F temps too ... unfortunately they were immediately follwed by the 20s with extremely high winds. Oh. But I must sing the praises of the Amazing Ice Cleat Rubbers (not their real name) that I bought from QVC because the on air demo looked really, really good.

They work as well as they showed on TV. Better even, since I had a more complex task than dancing on a block of ice set at a slight incline.

The rain that fell Monday Night froze into a gigantic ice sheet on the sidewalks and parking lot on Tuesday morning and did not melt for Tuesday afternoon when I had to go to work.

The cleats dig well into the thick ice, but also provide good traction on the thin, infamous "black ice" that strikes fear into the hearts of ambulatory people everywhere.

but then again, what are the ODDS of getting hit again (he says as he warily looks around waiting for the lightning bolt to strike) ??

Getting hit with a hurricane? In Florida?

Probably about the same as getting hit with a hurricane in North Carolina.....

It's Official
A drought in Seattle, and for the rest of the state as well. Who says it always rains in Seattle?

If it's yellow, let it mellow.
If it's brown, flush it down. :o

RFN it's eighteen degrees, snowing sideways, with a howling west wind.

It ain't a fit night out for man nor beast.

Nope. Premature blow-blow.

Nothing yet.

I'm glad I don't live in the midwest. I'm not ready for that kind of snow. We had a dusting this morning. The grass is sort of white. The streets are wet. No complaints.

RFA week & a half ago. That was the roughest hour of weather I've seen in a long time.

Today's high is predicted to peak at 77 degrees F. If so, it will mark the end of a record setting heat wave. Yesterday was the ninth consecutive day of temperatures of 80 degrees F or higher. The previous record was six consecutive days. I'm very glad for the break. It has been miserable.

I'm sorry, I know the "Texas is so hot" thing is totally old and busted... but seriously? We have just gotten down to the low 80s, at least in the morning/midday, for the first time in months (including overnights!) and everyone here is so relieved.

And I know, I know you guys don't really have air conditioners in homes there, so it's not a fair comparison. But on the other hand, we keep our house at 80 in the summers to save on the electric bills.
