Oh, The Weather
Outside is frightful. If I had a fire, it'd be delightful.
It rained pretty much all day, and by the time we got off of work, the temp had dropped, and ice was starting to build up. Around 5-ish, the rain stopped, so I bundled up and went outside to refill the bird feeder. While I was out there, I decided to go ahead and scrape the ice off my truck, so I wouldn't have to do it in the morning. I got my windows cleared and my doors opened -- I had to pour water over them to melt enough ice to get them open-- and wouldn't you know it... it started raining again.
It seems the rain is done for now, so I guess I'll go back out and see what the damage is. I'm tellin' ya, it's cold out there. I had a towel that I was drying my windows with, and I dropped it into a puddle. I set it on the hood of my car, and within 5 minutes, it had started to freeze to the metal.
The bad part is, all my Facebook friends are posting lovely photos of snowscapes, and all I get is ice. And cold. Bone chilling cold and dampness.
But in the midst of all this, my crazy Whatever Cactus has started to bloom again.
I finally got the plants from my uncle's funeral repotted.
That's about all I have for you today.
