Yeah, I know there's places a lot colder. I live in a house that's about 60 years old, and before tw's codes were put in place.

Rain here again.
We're immune to floods, living on this little hill, although the water does run down our garden path and give us a little moat to hop over when the weather has been unusually persistent.
I've never known such a prolonged period of wet country-wide.

Uncle Ted's funeral tomorrow. Well, later today really.
The only two black bottoms I have are a long pair of trousers or a very very long skirt.
I got rid of a lot of black clothes which were simply too big.
Both choices are going to act like a wick to soak up all the rain I can hear against my window

I guess I shouldn't even be contemplating my rockstar trousers...
No.
Stck-heeled boots and rolling over the waistband of the skirt I think.

Still, what a dreary Winter.
I'm looking forward to Spring now, which is not like me. Because I prefer the cold to the wet and the mud. Just that this year it's hard to see how it could get wetter or muddier and at least I'd start leaving the house in the light again.

We could use a bit of that rain here, although a fairly intense low looks like it might bring some in the next week or so.

In MS? Holy shit! That qualifies as real winter weather, Buster.

Gas. Once used wood also. But not able to round up the firewood anymore. Sold my chain saw. Want to buy a used wood heater?

Seconded. Single digits above (daytime) and below (night, obviously), here. It's colder farther north in western PA, and the houses don't have insulation. Stay warm, folks ... without bringing the barbeque inside.

Highway patrol map Uncheck some of the shit on left and you can see roads closed and redneck bumper car derby.

They are predicting up to 1/4" of ice tomorrow, so I figured I would go online and see who to call when my Internet goes out. But apparently Verizon is concerned with something far more severe:
