Good morning. The sun is shining and the temperature is already up to 11F degrees. Woo Hoo! Today's temps will climb up into the upper twenties, and back down to twenty for overnight. This is going to be our warmest night in quite some time.
Alas, it isn't going to last. We have a blizzard working its way to us beginning tonight and all day tomorrow. Temps tomorrow will be warm, but with a foot of snow and high winds, we might lose our power. God bless us all, please don't let us lose our power.
Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night are going to give us more extreme cold temperatures. Then, hopefully, things will start to warm up a bit after that. Gosh, I hope so. This storm Grayson is a nasty little bugger. The whole Eastern coast is being bombarded with snow, ice, rain and freezing temps. Power outages have already started in Florida. (Lake City, Fla.)
I've been watching the Weather Channel on TV for a few hours now. So far, this brutal cold has contributed to at least twenty two deaths across the country. Folks, keep an eye on your neighbors. Especially the sick and the elderly. A little bit of help could mean the difference between life and death for some of them.
Yesterday was quiet around here. I did, however, spend some fun time on my laptop working on new quick pages. I also bought a few new scrap kits to play with. So, between making quick pages, getting my tax stuff ready and crocheting, I have plenty to keep me busy indoors during all this wicked winter weather.
Speaking of quick pages, here's my first one for this year. This might be good for your New Year's Eve party photos.
Here is your download link:
Do you still make New Year resolutions? Do you keep them? If one of them was to try losing weight, and you had a problem with it, think about this. I found this on the web.
Oh gosh, this one made me giggle. Imagine, diet water!! And yet, I'll bet lots of folks probably would buy it. On the other hand, if you're happy with your weight, this might make you feel much better about it. I guess I'll be safe for a while. haha, Maybe I'll bake a cake. haha.
When I finish this post, I have to call my eye doctor. I have an appointment for tomorrow, but I'll be needing to cancel and re-schedule (again). I don't want to be out on the road during the storm. we're supposed to be getting a heating fuel delivery tomorrow. I'm hoping they come early in the day before the snow gets too deep.
Before I go, I'm wondering what's happening in the blog world. Many folks just aren't blogging very often, or at all, anymore. I'm wondering why that is, and hoping it is not due to sickness. I really miss the chit chat with them.
I also want to mention that daughter Deanne sprained her ankle (while dancing on New Year's Eve) and needs to be taking it easy for a while so that it can heal. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery Deanne. Call me if I can be of help. (I'm not totally old yet!)
Now I think I'll make myself a hot cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
