It Feels Like Winter Here In New England

December 8, 2014

Good morning.  Surprise surprise.  I peeked out my window this morning and found a light layer of snow covering everything.  I wonder where that came from?  I'm beginning to think that there's not much point in watching the Weather Channel if the weather that shows up is unexpected. 

It's Brrrrr here this morning.  Only 22F.  The high today is supposed to get up to around 36F.  Tomorrow the temperature is expected to get up to 52F, with heavy wind and rain, and then work it's way back down to cold (and still rainy) for the rest of the week.  Starting at 6 a.m. tomorrow, we will be in a flood watch until 1 a.m. Wednesday.

I'm starting to think that we might be better off with a few inches of snow instead of all the rain we're expecting.  The good thing about the snow is that it will melt slowly and not flood my basement.  I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that we don't get enough rain to cause flooding.

Later this morning, I have an appointment at the nail salon.  Today though, I think I'll leave Pogo at home.  He'll be much warmer here.  Of course, he does not agree with me.  He really doesn't care how messy or cold is gets outside as long as he can go with me.  So, when I leave him at home, I tell him that I really need him to protect the house for me while I'm gone.  This seems to make him feel better.

I don't have new photos for today, but a friend sent me some simply adorable photos that I thought I would share with you.  There are several of them so I'll post a few a day.  If you love animals, you'll like these.  They are all titled "The morning after the big party".

Gosh almighty, you gotta laugh at these cute photos.  My favorite is the baby elephant.  I can't imagine that this position is really comfortable, but it doesn't seem to bother this little cutie pie.

There are some new words being added to the Webster Dictionary.  One of them is "Mahoosive", which means really really huge.  (Perhaps bigger than massive.)  Hmmm, I like the sound of this word.  It's so expressive.

Well, as you can see by my banter, there's not much happening here.  So, I think I'll wash the dishes, and get dressed.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Didn't check on blogs yesterday, so here's comment on toh ones LOL.
Cold it is, but perhaps indeed a thin layer or snow is sometimes better than rain with wind.
Love the cute visitor in your garden.
I am just back from my appointment so will quicky do a post on my blog.
Oh, nice you have found that old pattern booklet, it gives a boost to try out new things.
Hopefully Pogo did understand what you were telling him: to gard the house while you were gone hahahaha.
Sure he was all so happy when you returned.
Okay, have to go now, wishing you a wonderful day!

Those photos are funny. There is nothing more priceless than candid shots of animals.
