It seems our weather has gone from one extreme to the other. Mind you, Elsbeth may not see 37F as an extreme high-but after being almost that low below zero last week-it is to us. It means snow banks are melting, & what is falling from the sky is either freezing rain or just rain, but landing on the frozen ground and freezing into ice! The hill our house is on & which I hate to drive off in Winter becomes even more perilous but it is also good protection against a flooded basement! It would be nice if it stayed warm long enough to get rid of some of this ice-I can hope!
Our worst storms seem to be preceeded by the words "A Texas Low is Coming this way" & I want to thank 'Nester-but I'm sure she isn't directly responsible. And if this one doesn't lose its way-its worst effect should be east of us.
Other than the January thaw-this weekend is unremarkable. What about where you are? What do you have happening this second weekend of a new year-the holidays are well & thoroughly over, seems to me s**w & all things winter should be too. But bad as s**w is-freezing rain is worse! So I shall stay home & read & knit & avoid windows as much as possible.
