We have had intermittent heavy rain showers, hail, lightning, thunder, wonderful storm clouds and big high tides. (I saw on the NOAA website they are predicting waterspouts out in the bay today, so all you sea-sick sailors, watch out!) When the furry alarm clocks got me up this morning, I was greeted by a really cold house and this view off the back deck:
We immediately flung on all the clothes we own and grabbed some pictures in the neighborhood.
Actually we first fed the cats, and turned on the furnace for the first time in two years, since the thermometer in the house read 40-something. It was 37 outside. We drove around a bit, and had it confirmed that weather out of the ordinary for any locale makes people drive even more silly than usual:
Brutus is the only cat to venture outside very briefly; he is not amused and has taken to his bed. The girls ate breakfast and went immediately back to bed.
Since Sean was not interested in my offer to make snowballs with maple syrup, I made this and steaming hot mocha with Acme Roasting's fabulous coffee, this divine cocoa and Trader Joe's marshmallows
There's a bit of sun peeking out now, but more weather is heading our way, so we truly do have a snow-day-off. I'm close to finishing a pair of socks, and need to work on mittens. And hang out with cats.
