Good morning. Wow, it was quite warm all through the night (in the low thirties) and by morning it has cooled down quite a bit. It is now 22 F degrees and getting colder as the day goes on into night. Yesterday's nasty weather did not quite make it here. We mostly had a very light rain for about half of the day.
However, a lot of other folks are getting a lot of icy roads today and tomorrow. I've been watching the Weather Channel to see how close this ice gets to my daughter Audrey. She does not like driving on major roads, and the ice will make her drive to work (and back home) very treacherous. Be very careful Audrey.
I have an image that I borrowed from the web of some rather interesting footwear. They are called "Hillbilly Shoe Covers". You can buy them from a catalogue "The Lighter Side" for only $32.98. Wearing these to work should make one's day quite interesting! You put them on right over your boots. (or shoes too, I guess) Could this maybe be the start of a new footwear craze?
News flash!! They are reporting now on TV that a 3.3 earthquake happened yesterday morning in the Plainfield, Connecticut area. So far, no injuries have been reported. This was the eighth earthquake in this area in just a week. Gosh, this is very unusual for this area. What in the world is happening in the weather realm??? (TV says this earthquake was this morning, Google says it was yesterday.)
I promised you a photo of my "Sunshine" afghan. I took the photo with my phone last evening while I had the afghan on my lap. (working on it) When I have more of it done, I'll take another photo. The colors are hard to capture under a regular lamp light. I'll try taking the next photo in daylight to see the difference.
I have another photo project to share, but first I need to check with a friend to see if it is okay to post it here on my blog. After all, it is not my own idea.
Today, I was hoping to get out to shop for a new tree and more birdseed, but I may wait till tomorrow or Thursday when it is warmer. We'll see. I'm thinking that today is a good day to stay indoors and make a pot of corn chowder. Yup yup, I think that's what I'll do.
Well that's my news for this morning. Now I think I'll have me another cup of coffee while I do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all do stay warm and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
