I am reading Death At Devil’s Bridge by Robin Paige.

44 degrees, partly cloudy, and windy this morning when I left for the gym, home, and back to work.

It’s been another rainy day with more tonight. So farĀ  we’ve had 20″ of rain and it’s only early February. I hate to repeat myself but, whew, am I glad this has not been all snow.

25 degrees, sunny, with a light dusting of snow. It started snowing yesterday afternoon but by 6 pm the grass was just barely white and flat surfaces had a light dusting. It was not snowing when I took Colin out lasts night around 9:30.

This morning the ground was covered but it all melted away by mid-morning. Low 40’s today with lots of sunshine and calm winds.

I did the usual house cleaning chores this morning. I have bills to pay and some other miscellaneous stuff to do at my desk this afternoon.

24 degrees with partly cloudy skies this morning when I took Colin out. We had a light dusting of snow last night. We may get another light dusting again this evening. Not as cold and windy today with temperatures in the mid 30’s.

Along with the usual load of laundry I’ve spent the day doing little projects and household chores. I also started some butterfly weed seeds in little pots in the garage as an experiment. I could not find the plant last year so decided to try from seed. They are hard to grow so the experiment may fail but it’s fun to try. Another batch of bird suet is cooling in the fridge to go out tomorrow.

We had a horrible hail storm this morning around 3 that knocked out the power for about an hour and a half. Rain totals from the rain yesterday and this morning topped out to almost 6 inches.

When I left for the gym it was sunny and 35 but still blowing 40 mph. I came home then went back to work my usual shift.

Around mid-morning the blowing snow showers started that have lasted all day. The sun would be shinning and snow would be blowing 40 mph across the parking lot.

Temperatures have dropped into the mid 20’s this afternoon and will continue to drop tonight with more snow showers. Other than a little bit of white in the grass and on the mulched beds you would not know it has snowed all day. Wind chills are down in the teens.

I am reading Terns of Endearment by Donna Andrews.

Pouring buckets of rain when I left for the gym this morning. Pouring buckets when I left to go back to the gym to work. This is the second time in about as many weeks that we have had a 5 plus inch rain event. Flood watches and warnings in place. Again, thankful it’s not snow. The rivers and creeks I pass on the way to and from the gym are all out of their banks.

I headed down the mountain to Winston again this morning. I met Bonnie for lunch then went by Frances and Al’s to drop some things off for them before my 2 pm appointment for my mammogram. I was there an hour and half making it 3:30 by the time I was heading home.

It was raining when I took Colin out this morning and rained all day in Winston. Looks like we’ve only had a quarter of an inch here. Colin had a long day home alone. Time to give him some much needed attention.

44 degrees and partly sunny when I left for the gym. A quick grocery store stop then home, showered, and headed down the mountain to Winston. I ran a couple of errands before my 1 pm appointment for my annual GYN physical. Back up the mountain in time for a staff meeting at the gym.

Warm here today with temperatures in the 60’s. It was 70 in Winston.

I am reading The Coffin Trail by Martin Edwards. A new author for me; his books are set in the Lake District of England.

35 degrees and sunny this morning when I took Colin out. Mid 50’s today with lots of sunshine. Should be a lovely day to be outside except for the 20 mph winds with gusts over 40 mph.

The usual house cleaning chores this morning. First of the month checkbook balancing and bill paying, etc. this afternoon.

35 degrees, partly sunny, and breezy. We may make it into the low 40’s this afternoon. Winds pick up tonight as temps drop back down into the low 30’s.

I’ve done the weekly laundry and mixed up a batch of homemade bread dough to bake this afternoon to eat with dinner and freeze. Otherwise, the never ending household things-to-do this afternoon.
