Everywhere I turned today there has been news of the weather. I woke up to a "chilly" 20 degrees, turned over pulled up the blankets and then realized I had to get up and go to work.
I got up, turned on the morning news only to find the temperatures will be the same for the foreseeable future. At least that's what the weatherman is predicting - we'll see.
Next, I grabbed up the morning paper, a photo of swimmers entering the icy waters of Lake Coeur'd Alene for the 29th annual Polar Bear Plunge. With temperature at 28 degrees and the wind chill at 21 around 1000 people participated in the event. You can bet I was not one of those brave souls and my picture did not make the front page.
Thinking there would not be any "weather news" in my email, I got on the computer. Lo and behold, an email with pictures attached, from my sister in Vermont. You guessed it - snow pictures from around her house. No thanks, I don't need any more snow!!
On my way to work, I phoned my other sister in Tennessee......she was just waking up. Oh No!!, she says, when I went to bed, there was no snow. Now look, there is about two to three inches and the temperature is 11 degrees.
The evening news was full of weather across the country. From frigid Florida where farmers were protecting their citrus crops to Louisana where they were covering their strawberries to California where a trio of rainstorms were expected to hit there. Okay! Enough is enough!
Dinner's over. It's time for RV Dreams Chat. The main topic tonight - well you guessed it - the WEATHER!! Everyone was talking about how cold it was and comparing temps. From 7 degrees in Lexington KY, 20 degrees in Cary NC, Mesa AZ in the low 50s, Alabama in the low 20s, 4 degrees in eastern Kansas, and 2 above in Iowa. It is definitely cold all across the USA.
I've had enough of weather for today. Let's fast forward to Spring. After all it's only 68 days.
In the words of my father "That's It For Today".
