Good morning. This will be a fairly short post as I have a morning appointment with the eye doctor. It's been at least two or three years since my last eye exam. I've been wanting to get new glasses, but not until after a new exam.
This morning on the Weather Channel they are showing all the recent vehicle pile-ups due to icy roads, plus they are re-hashing several of the other really bad pile-ups from this past week. I am just so amazed at how many people will insist on being out on the roads during freezing rain.
Any time it rains and the temperature is below freezing, the roads will be icy. Is the almighty dollar so important to us that we will risk our lives and the lives of others by travelling on unsafe roads? I'm thinking that a lot of accidents may have been prevented if people had waited a few hours to travel to their jobs or destinations. Maybe I just think too realistically.
At 3:30 this morning, it was 43F degrees. At the moment, it is 33 degrees, with a promise of maybe getting up to 40 degrees later today. The road near my house looks dry, but I will leave a bit early for my appointment just in case. If I find the roads looking a bit iffy, I'll turn around and come back home and re-schedule my appointment.
Well, Deanne and Eddie are beginning to feel better, DIL Janet is over her bout with the flu, and Kevin is hanging in there till his upcoming doctor appointment. Hopefully they will all be healed and feeling normal really soon.
Congratulations are in order for all you Patriots and Seattle football fans. Your teams will be facing off in this year's Super Bowl. Good luck to all of you, although I'll be routing for the New England Patriots, of course.
Is anyone other than me trying to do that 365 day photo project? Are you having as much difficulty as I am trying to match a photo to the daily words? I may end up making my own word list in order to make the project more fun.
In that case, today's word will be "water". I've taken a photo of our new bird water bowl. It's outside my window where it is protected from bad weather. Also, I can just open my window to fill the bowl with water.
Well that's all my news for this morning. It's time to make breakfast for my little guy before I have to get ready for my appointment. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day and please stay off the icy roads.
Hugs, Edna B.
