Square in snow!


Square in snow

Our hard-working county commissioner posted this photo on FB of Mayberry’s square during one of his many road checks last night.  This man (and the road crew) are getting very little sleep, poor thangs.  He reports many slick spots in the area this morning, with a large area of frozen rain set to possibly hit Mayberry at any time now.  They are right on the edge of “does it hit…or does it miss?”  Regardless, they are prepared.

Icy, slick roads are taken very seriously in our mountain county.  Those hard workers are definitely appreciated for keeping the folks safe and informed.

Our Canadian neighbors here in WPB think nothing of sitting outside in high 50 temps…as Maytag Man and I sit inside our moho.  They probably think we are wusses (yes, we are).  I am OK with that opinion.  We expect 75 later today, and that sounds like a patio sitting temp to me!

I’m making Barb’s Crockpot Cajun Chicken Pasta for dinner.  Who wants to join us?  It’s always a good day for pasta, in my humble opinion, along with some good red wine.  Top that with sunshine, and life is good, y’all.

I hope you enjoy it! We sure did. Tonight is good old-fashioned vegetable plates. There's been a lot of soups and pasta this week, including MotherDear's Lasagna last night. I was up half the night with acid reflux, popping Pepcid Completes. This getting older stuff is sometimes a little bit No Fun.

We are NOT enjoying these freezing temps at all. It's 9:39 am and still only 32°. I had planned an early run to Sam's and vegging on front of the TV but it's gonna have to warm up before I go out.

Grumble grumble grumble. Come on Spring!

Enjoy your 70's! We're supposed to get to 69°. That beats the 45's and such we've been having all week.

big hugs xoxo

Hopefully, fingers crossed, the worst icy mess is missing us. It is officially up to 34 now, and I would sit outside in your temps, too! Maybe with a sweater on, but outside. Enjoy your sunshine!

Your folks do things right. That's a good thing. Safety first. That's awesome.

It's cold here too and I'm tired of it. We had spring temperatures last week and it was wonderful. We're back to normal now.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥
