Bumping: We could get 6-8 inches of snow starting tomorrow and lasting through Friday morning. Don't be jealous.

Now that I have a proper SUV, I'm gonna drive fast and stupid during the snow. I need to make sure I get an "I'm not a native, but I got here as fast as I could" bumper sticker. Maybe a Cali state outline sticker for the back window. :D

You need one of these to go along with the SUV and the snow.

To thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul. In thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be ashamed. Neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait on thee shall be confounded.

meanwhile, here in the deep south, the highs are in the mid 80s; kids have already broken out the slip-n-slide, sprinkler, and bathing suits.  We planning our first trip to the river to swim after we get back from going to visit my Mom next week  :thumbsup:

"I'm not a native, but I got here as fast as I could"

I imagine that quote could rile a few.  :)

"We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete." Benedict XVI May 13, 2010

"Tell people that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Tell them also to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for peace, since God has entrusted it to Her." Saint Jacinta Marto

The real nature of hope is “despair, overcome.”

Hard freeze this morning. Bird bath is frozen. Ice on the car windshield.

We've been going through about two weeks of near constant rain.
The royal feast was done; the King
Sought some new sport to banish care,
And to his jester cried: "Sir Fool,
Kneel now, and make for us a prayer!"

The jester doffed his cap and bells,
And stood the mocking court before;
They could not see the bitter smile
Behind the painted grin he wore.

He bowed his head, and bent his knee
Upon the Monarch's silken stool;
His pleading voice arose: "O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!"

don't worry.  Here in about a month or so, the heat and humidity will be so thick, we'll be able to cut it with a knife.  Everything will be hot...the ground, the water, the air.  It'll be miserable  ;)

& loving it!
I lived in Miami for 25 years; I remember going on vacation to Miami when I lived in El Salvador; we would arrive in early November or late October; the weather would be almost perfect; temperatures in the low 80's low humidity, nice Easterly breeze, very little rain. Then when we moved there in July 3, 1967; the airport terminal doors opened and a blanket of heat and humidity hit me in the face; what in the world! I had never experienced a S. Fla. Summer before, and I was miserable. But I eventually got used to the weather and came to love it.

It will be interesting to gauge the births along the Front Range of the Rockies in January: a five day stint with rain/snow/sleet at 6200 feet. In the higher elevations measurable snow. Highs only in 40s or low 50s. Good weight lifting weather, I guess. Keeping the snow shoes in view in case I decide to get real high(er) elevation.

In regards to post #20 above, we got 12 inches overnight. On May 21. But wait! There's more! DO not put away the skis just yet, wax 'em if you got 'em!

Señor Tutti Frutti gives us the full report:
