I'm being held captive, in my house, by Pointy Icicles of Death

Woke up, this morning, to see this right out side of my front door. Since I am recovering from a "Plague-Cold", I'm going to use this blockade as an excuse to spend one more day in 'recovery and recuperation'. The weather starts to warm up, starting tomorrow, and it looks like that's the trend, for the rest of the month!

2. Yes, those things are potentially deadly.

I have more than my share of them, too. Just remember - not that you need the reminder, I'm sure - that when they start to thaw, they start to fall, and try to avoid them!

Hope you feel better soon.

4. Definitely on the mend - thanks!

I've never had flu, but if I let myself get run down, I am susceptible to some nasty head colds.

If these don't fall on their own, today, I'm going to help them along.

Here in California it's been 82 degrees and I hate it

It's dropped down to the 60s now, but really-- we normally have winter here, too

This year you'd never know it

AND very, very little rain

11. I was shocked to find out how much snow we got, this year

There have been several very heavy snowfalls, with interim melts, so it didn't seem like that much. It hasn't been as bad as the 2013/2014 seasons, but we are still well above average.

14. I was just in Clearwater, weekend before last

For my niece's wedding. I got in as much beach walking time as possible! It was wonderful.

My new winter plans include spending much quality time with the kids, both in Florida and North Carolina.

17. Glad to be of some use!!

I did have a wonderful time, and certainly spent my fair share of $$, too.

I used to spend about 6 weeks a year in southern California, and spent a whole lot of time walking on those beaches. I haven't been back there in 10 years, so I was in dire need of warm sand between my toes, and beautiful sea shells to collect.
