Coupl'a Things XV

1) Et Expecto: We are waiting for a snow storm... or not. All the forecasts yesterday were warning of mounds of snow and maybe ice. It was headed our way, giving Colorado and Kansas a decidedly Arctic look. I did little yesterday, nothing more than I had to, I just knew that if the snow hit I'd be shoveling, de-icing, and hearing the Palace denizens bitch. Barb and I were resigned to miss the Symphony concert on Saturday if the weather turned nasty. I went to bed early too... getting all prepared.

Woke up at 5AM.. trudged to the window, expecting to see the world covered in white. It just looked wet. Bed beckoned and I returned. Now awake, full of coffee and functioning a bit, I see that perhaps the worst of the storm is heading south of us. We may get 1-2 in of it, but not the 8-12 they were taking about. Since it is supposed to be in 40s tomorrow, it won't last long. I am over snow.

2)In terra: The garden will appreciate the lack of heavy snow and bitter cold. Several people have early plants going (onions, cauliflower, beets, etc) and most have staked out their claim. I'll post a new picture soon, it looks more like a garden now.

3)Requiescat in pace: Delores "Dee" Christiansen of Elmhurst,IL. died Thursday due to complications from Alzheimer's at 81. She was the mother-in-law of my faithful friend and reader David.

4) For some reason I am in a Latin mood this AM. Thus: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
