Here, let me freeze that for ya.....

The weather program I have on my computer was setting off sirens this morning but I figured it was just more warnings about the SNOW.

Mom Nature, never wanting us to be bored, has sprung a new one on me. I never remember having "Freezing Fog" type of weather. I don't even remember that terminology ever being used. I thought fog occurred when temps were warmer....its 16 outside. We have about 8 inches of new snow that occurred on Saturday day and all through the night....now this. The following is copied from the Weather Alert released by NOAA.

FREEZING FOG WILL DISSIPATE THIS MORNING AS SURFACE WINDS EMERGE OUT OF THE SOUTHWEST. HOWEVER...UNTIL THIS FOG CAN LIFT LOCALIZED AREAS WILL CONTINUE TO WITNESS REDUCED VISIBILITIES OF ONE QUARTER OF A MILE OR LESS. THIS FOG MAY FREEZE ON SOME ROADWAYS AND AGGRAVATE ALREADY SLICK CONDITIONS. IF YOU ARE OUT EARLY THIS MORNING...DRIVE WITH CARE AS TRAVEL CONDITIONS WILL BE TRICKY DUE TO THE SLICK CONDITIONS AND HIGHLY VARIABLE VISIBILITIES.

I was awakened this beautiful morning at 8 a.m. because my neighbor chose that time to snow blow his driveway which is next to my bedroom window. I always keep my window cracked to let fresh air in but I was getting exhaust fumes on top of the noise, so I just gave it up and got up, mumbling and grumbling all the way to the coffee pot.

I have to think of some things positive to offset this grumbling so I was thinking that I'm lucky I don't have to drive in this crap for a living; that this is my day off; that I have a warm comfy house; that I have coffee to drink and even a cheese danish to go with it; and also thankful that my gun is hidden away from the grandchildren and would be too much trouble to retrieve in order to shoot out the little engine on that snow blower, thus keeping me out of trouble. *Sigh*. I'm feelin' better already.

Stay safe out there. Tomorrow, my pork chop recipe.

When I lived in the mountains freezing fog filled several mornings during the winter. Guess I'm a nut but I loved it. It made the world look like a fairy tale. We also had "ball lightening" but it was less frequent and really frightening. I know the weather can get to be a pain in the ole back side but at least it offers some drama. Our weather is mostly bland.

Is this winter unusual or the norm for you?

The neighbor needs a swift kick!

Tomorrow it's going to be 41 degrees Celsius...apparently 35 degrees by 7am. I will be hibernating too Val but for a completely different reason to you.

The bubble of runescape accounts and runescape gold is burst already. So I don't understand why we can't have both, especially if the skill set is the same, if the mission is the same. One is not possible without runescape money . and we are still waiting for change that will not come, unless wow cd key for the worse.
