stormy Thursday

It could have been so much worse. In fact, it was so much worse elsewhere. We had the hail, the winds, the rain. The thunder, the dark skies, the cold temperatures. But, the snow is gone. And in all that wet rage that fell from the skies, there were pauses. Long enough, for example, for me to feed the cats and for Ed to feed the cheepers (buffeted here by the fierce winds!).

Breakfast indoors and with the furnace running!

Of course, Snowdrop finds greatness even in the dismal, wet weather. A chance to bring out the pink umbrella!

I bring her home. She is in top form. Hail? Winds? That's over there. Here -- we have our imaginations to make something beautiful of this afternoon.

A pretend phone call. Did I really hear her say this? -- "It dignifies something when you shake it a little." I keep quiet. She continues her conversation...

Spinning, spinning...

Evening. I never even step outside. Ed takes care of the cheepers. Me, I use their eggs as a base for supper. I have to. We're flooded with eggs!

We wont be warming up for a while, but today's near freezing temps have moved on. And that's really a good thing!
