    Brrrrrrrr.....

    This frigid cold up north has me daydreaming about my pool! Man, I'm hoping that groundhog don't see his shadow. Ha!

    Below freezing the past few nights in DFW also. High temps are forecast to be in the 40's for much of the next week but still flirt with the freezing mark at night. At least no ice on the roads for now.

    -5 forecasted here in central PA tonight. But at least we had a pretty sunset! (Though I froze taking the picture, it was around 7 degrees when I took it)

    It's 13 degrees now but we're getting a heat wave that should bring the temp above freezing today, maybe some of the snow will melt

    The last 3 days have been absolutely gorgeous weather in North East Texas. 67 and Sunny with a hint of springtime on the breeze. So pretty in fact, that I played hookie from work! The pool is clean and gorgeous and the bottom of my pool is shimmering with sunligt to the degree that sunglasses are a necessity, lest a retina burn is suffered! Love me some sunny weather and TFP!

    I'm ready for Spring to get here.... It's been cold. I work outside at night and I'm over this winter already. I was cutting peppers today thinking of gardening... That's how much I miss the warm weather!
