Good morning to you all. It is now 3:45 am. Normally we would still be asleep for another 2 hours. But around 2 a big front loader was clearing snow and the sound along with the reflection of the powerful flood lights off the snow and our very agitated cat woke us. Since we couldn't go back to sleep we got up and had coffee. We will probably nap during the news this afternoon. After all, that is what recliners are for, isn't it? We are in a bit of a lull right now but the backside of the storm hasn't hit yet. I can't tell what the wind is doing. Even the Guardian in the UK is covering this mess.

Don't worry, Lois. We aren't going to do anything outside until tomorrow at the earliest so we will be staying warm. Our temperatures are supposed to go into negative digits over night tonight and tomorrow with single digit day time highs. There are enough stupid people out there trying to get somewhere in this mess. We won't add to that stupidity.

Update--2:45 pm--so far the storm ranks number three on the all time worst list and may be closing in on the second spot. We had a bit of sun but the clouds came back in and we have had intermittent snow showers. The weatherpeople are now predicting a low temp tonight of -10. I don't think we'll be doing much snow removal tomorrow.

I hear ya!!!! It's a mess here, too!!! AND we had the honor of a power failure last night soooo the Kay was cold and without her computer. Today Bryce was over and attacked the ice on my sidewalks -- about an inch thick. I have a doctor appointment tomorrow and will have to venture out. Then again, maybe not.
