Yesterday the weather was in the 50's. People were out and enjoying the weather. Light coats were on, bikes were on the trails, smiles were on most peoples faces. Woke up this morning and we are having a blizzard. 50 mile winds, snow, cold, cold, cold. Man what a shock to your system.
Yes, I know the weatherman said it was coming, but seriously. They usually say we have a 50 % chance. What kind of forecast is that! I could do that. "It may snow today......then again it might not". "Why don't we just wait and see". So you never know and I can always hope it will go next door and miss us.
I had to call today and cancel the auctioneer who was coming to look at the house. Made Rick happy as he is not ready for this next step, but the house is ready, pretty much. We talked it over also for those who asked and think it would be a mistake for my son to buy the house. I don't want him doing something emotionally and getting in over his head. It is a 100 year old house and home repairs can break the bank if they are needed. Plus I believe we are in a recession and heading for a plain old depression here by next year. Time to be laying low and saving the money you got. It was a nice thought, but not a practical one in these times.
Hubby was up bright and early. Happy the auctioneer couldn't come today and puttering in the kitchen. Looks like he has nice warm stew bubbling away in the crock pot. Love a man who thinks about supper at 6 in the morning.
I am caught unprepared for this storm. No books to read. I could do laundry and housework. Yikes, did I say that?
Instead I think I will do the ebay auction I didn't get to yesterday. Sip on some more ginger tea, take my vitamins, Yes lots of C, thanks everyone. And hope the storm ends quickly.
