We must all be grateful that this years cold winter temperatures have been somewhat moderated by global warming. Just think how much colder it could have been. Bigger poorer fuel economy vehicles are definitely the answer.

Makes me kind of scratch my head and wonder why I live here. Our groundhog puppet did say winter is almost over so things will be looking up soon.

Yeah, I don't even think the extra insulation package Escape would do you much good here.

Not kidding anymore. The ice storm today has left more than 600,000 here without power and temps will be below freezing until Saturday. Homes burned from falling wires. Thousands of trees lost. Universities sending their students away because they cannot feed them or heat the dormitories.

I am one of the lucky ones who has power - for now. I have the emergency kit ready.

And another storm is coming on Sunday. Desperate times.

Rosemary that sounds awful! We were spared most of it although I wouldn't be surprised if the power went out again.

We have power only on our side of the street but the telephone pole in the alley is leaning precariously and if it goes, so will our power. The ice storm damaged a lot of trees in our locale and since it will be below freezing continuously until sunday's storm, that may be the proverbial straw that breaks the back. I can always stay in BlackJack but no way can I get my 94 year old mom out, through the snow and up the step. I'll have to turn on the gas fireplace and then we all can huddle around it. Hopefully Sunday will change.

Went to Calvin College January Series lecture couple weeks ago. Meteorological (spelling per spell check) data over last 50 years proves global warming of 2 degrees F. If your body temp was 2 degrees above normal, you would not feel good. Neither does Mother Nature. Therefore the extreme fluctuations in temps, snowfall and heavy rains when we get them.
This winter may not be a fluke!

You are not going to like this, but it is 65°F and sunny today at Quartzite. It did go down to 46° last night. About 35 trailers here so far (and the gathering doesn't actually start until Friday). Three Escape 17's, a few Bigfoots, Scamps, and many, many Casitas. Here is our end of the gathering:
