Oh, the weather outside is frightful...


Yoinks! Our weather is pretty frightful- they closed I-5 mid-morning and declared a chain requirement here in town. _That_ I've never seen. Wanda thought we could still go to breakfast, but I pointed out that I don't have chains for Zippy (which will probably be remedied before I head south, I hope) so we walked to Kennedy School instead. About halfway there she allowed as that it probably was a good thing we weren't driving- heavy wind, snow/ice mix on the ground, ice blowing in our faces. I had ice-frosted eyebrows by the time we got there. I fell about halfway there- sprained an ankle and wrenched my knee. Wanda fell just inside the doors but she seems to be ok (she made some comment about Weebles...). We had french toast and cocoa and it was yummy. And spent most of the rest of the day in bed. Heater's running and all but the wind is so high it's only 54 in Wanda's room and 60 in here- it's slamming right into those back windows. And she's hogging the kitties. :-(

It's supposed to be even colder tomorrow- highs around 25, wind chill of 13. I don't think I'm going to the pool in the morning.

I am so jealous. Last Thursday, we had about 5 minutes of snow/rain then it was gone. Spent this morning looking at ODOT traffic cams wishing we could be up there.

Don't be. Ok, the kids are having fun, but the roads are sheets of ice. I needed to get out today but Zippy is going nowhere and I'm not up to walking anywhere.

But I so wish you guys were here! Gotta get this damn economy going so you can come home!

It was 65 degrees here yesterday. Today it's supposed to be in the low 40s. Three days ago it was in the upper 20s. Damn weather can't make up its mind what season it is. Makes dressing for work a bitch. Layers and layers..

I'm wearing a stocking cap inside- it's that cold in my room. Three windows on the Gorge side of the house, and the wind... and more weather coming in tonight.

And my leg still really hurts. I'm afraid to go to the dr for fear I won't be able to drive to Ashland. How's that for wussiness?
