A different kind of blizzard   3 comments

It seems our storm went a little bit south and a little bit east, and so we are getting frigid cold, extremely high winds, and a few inches of snow.

It is fun to watch the weathermen do a fancy dance that somehow winds up with them having predicted the weather accurately – as in, Friday night, after 20 minutes of dire predictions and warnings about the 2 feet of snow, whole gale winds and sub-zero temps headed our way, they threw in a quick line “if it goes a bit east, we will get much less, if it goes a bit west, we will get a lot more.” So, they got it right.

Whatever.  I am still not going outside.  Because they did get the wind and temperature right.

I am knitting and watching the birds on the feeders (mostly easily identified chickadees, so far.) And the TV is on, CBS Sunday Morning, lots of feel-good love news. And jewels.

We had a nice Valentine’s Day – went out to dinner Friday night, because of the impending doom. A got me a card and a bag of heart-shaped peppermint patties, I got her a card and a small box of goldfish crackers (can’t afford real gold.) 🙂 and we are both happy. Because it isn’t about one day, it is about every day. So no jewels or gold, just lots of love.

  1. Only love endures. Sounds like a wonderful dinner.

  2. Yes. Every day should be a love day. Glad you’re not buried in snow.
