Here's a link.
I met a bunch of these people in Sept. at KY RU.

Above freezing here again. Go away snow!

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

43 no wind chill, not a cloud.
I'm out cutting up that limb in a T-Shirt and Baseball Cap.
What a difference a day makes.
Yesterday it was 1 and full Winter hiking garb.

Last night was a noise fest.
Ice dropping on the Hot Tub canopy sounded like firecrackers and then the House roof got it.
Smack....Slide...Smack....Slide all night long.

We're going over to a neighbor's for Super Bowl.
They just got a metal roof this Fall.
It looks like an avalanche Zone.
The ice and snow have slipped about 8" over the roof edge.
I know when our garage roof lets loose the whole thing slips at once.


L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

MIL has relatives in Grandin, MO and they've been without power since Tuesday. That's got to be really rough in cold weather.

KC Metro area, MO(Zone 6a)

In the mid 50s here, partly cloudy and still gusty. If the wind would go away it would be a nice day.

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

The entire Kentucky Army National Guard has been mobilized.
They are clearing trees ahead of the power companies.
Also bringing in fuel for heating and they brought generators to run the service stations w/ fuel.
Their main priority now is checking every house down there in the affected areas.
Then get the water treatment plants back up and running.

This wind is really melting off the snow now.

Happy to say the FPR roof held up marvelously.
There is 4" of ice and probably 4 " of snow up there.
If it will hold that.... a GH will be NO problem.

Celia LOL! Tender indeed.


(Zone 3b)

Minus 10F ~ sunny and bright. Not a breath of wind. All's glittering and gorgeous.
The volcano continues to warm up; sure hope we're able to fly out on the 10th; haven't seen the 2 grandkids since mid-October.
ric~thanks for the update ~ what mess for all caught in the ice/snow storm.

Great shot, Kiska! I hope you can fly to see your grandchildren. Is the volcano a threat for your area?
I saw on TV about KY, so scary!
Celia, so cute!
It's greezing again and we had a few snowflakes yesterday. You can see behind Buck!LOL

Y'all have been busy this weekend! Too much to catch up on. Celia a/k/a Kwanjin asked me to let y'all know her modem went down. I'd cry :(

(Zone 3b)

Love Buck's pic, Adina. Do you like having snow?
Yes, the volcano would affect flights out of Anchorage.
MySharona~me too:) Look forward to seeing her back online; thanks. Your Peanut/Jeff make good photo subjects.

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

Adina if Buck isn't saying "Let me in!" then I don't know dogs! LOL!

46 (Wind Chill 42

Off to a SB Party


Springboro, PA(Zone 5a)

Currently 31 and falling. Wow, we had a high of 54 today! (according to the fancy wireless thermometer I got for Christmas) Back in the freezer by mid-week with a high predicted in the low teens. Back up to 40 by next weekend though.

Ric.........Yeah, Buck is saying "Woof, woof, please let me come in and make a bunch of muddy tracks, woof, woof."

Go Steelers! I guess the trash talking Browns fans at work will be quiet this week.

I take it the Steelers won? I usually watch the Super Bowl, but we were so busy today I didn't even think of it. Rats. We had fun, though. :-) We went to the Museum of Fine Arts after church. On the first Sunday of the month Target sponsors a children's day there with a theme and lots of activities - and it's free! I don't know how long they've been doing this, but I'm sorry we haven't heard of it before! This month's theme was Japan, and along with a bunch of craft-y things (none of which we did, because the girls wanted to just wander around looking at things... next time!), they showed My Neighbor Totoro, an animated movie by my husband's all-time favorite director, Hayao Miyazaki ( The girls have already seen - and loved! - Totoro on our DVD, but it was very fun seeing it in a real theatre with an audience who was enthusiastically laughing at all the right spots. If you get a chance to see a Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli movie, do it!

(Side note: Not all of their movies (or any Japanese studio's movies, for that matter) are suitable for small children, even if they are animated. Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke in particular, are quite intense. They're all really good, though!)

We wandered around the exhibits at the museum for a while, and then came back home and relaxed for about an hour before heading back to church for children's choir. When I got home, I realized that I have a Bible study board meeting tomorrow and I hadn't even typed up last month's meeting notes, to say nothing of e-mailing them to the rest of the board. Oops!!! Where DID January go??? So since putting the bunnies to bed, I've been working on Bible study stuff. I do the PowerPoint slides for our announcements/lyrics to the songs we sing during worship time. Half the fun is making the backgrounds to the slides. :-) That part is done, so now I just need to type the lyrics in and update the announcements. Whew! :-)

It was pushing 80 today, but, of course, there's another chilly front coming through tonight. I'm hoping we will get some real rain out of it this time... We really need it!

I rarely watch sports on tv, rather go to the game. The only time Jeff watches is when the Steelers are in the SuperBowl. Sooooo, I double dog dared Jeff to go to the store with his dreds on. Unfortunately he had his UT sweatshirt and crocs on! He said he scared a couple of "little old ladies" in the store LOL!

LOL at Jeff!!!

I have no idea what our temp is outside except it's cold enough to have frost on the ground until a few minutes ago. Our high is only supposed to be 35. Our fancy thermometer that is outside appears to have quit working.....again.

(Zone 3b)

-2F Dark and the volcano continues to heat up. No eruption as of now, 7am.
Highs zero to 5 above.
MarylynT_X~what a very busy day and night; hope you had time to rest before heading out this morning.
MySharona~looks as if Jeff is loving it.

Hey now e_b... Trash Talking Browns fan here....LOL!
It was a good but WAY over officiated game.
LOVED seeing Polamalu whiff on that Tackle! lol!
REALLY violent commercials this year....
anyone on here from TX get the X Rated shots?

38F and Sunny here.... cold weather coming back for a few days.
Maybe 60F by Sunday....

Guess the Rodent saw his shadow......

Woof Woof

(Zone 3b)

With it cold this morning, but dark; I "assumed" it was also clear out. However, it's now light; with heavy fog. No shadow; no groundhogs here, either. What lies ahead:))?
The SBowl was fun to watch; didn't care who won, so enjoyed the back and forth scoring.

KC Metro area, MO(Zone 6a)

Well, it's warmer than I was told it was gonna be. In the mid to high 40s. Very nice. Sunny too.

It appears that the weather station that we have here at the house doesn't like it when I fall asleep in the chair. I started falling asleep earlier and next thing I know that this is beeping like crazy. My first thought was TV, then fire alarm, then I realized that the sound was coming from the little weather deal. I went over there punched a button and told it to stay quiet or I was gonna take the batteries out. LOL. Needless to say I was awake and not going to sleep again. LOL

Millersburg, PA(Zone 6b)

Exciting SuperBowl game!! I usually watch it for the commercials, but really didn't enjoy them this year. I think most of them were too short. Puxatauny(sp) Phil saw his shadow. Short snow shower late this afternoon, now nothing..

kiska, stay safe in your volatile area.

(Zone 3b)

cute story, pepper:)
se_eds~ with more winter on the way, guess there's more shovelling ahead.
We are pretty well set for emergencies; so should be ok when it erupts.

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

-2 here tonight & NW wind blowing hard. Brrrr!
One more day of cold, then a warming trend.
Spent the afternoon running errands & grocery shopping. I told my wife we could live for a long time on things we have stocked up, but she always finds things to put on the list!

I picked up a new price list for baby chicks today. Then all are 10 more each than last year.

Trying to watch "Bachelor" while catching up here.
Time to pay attention to the show.

Springboro, PA(Zone 5a)

18F after a sunny mild day.

Ric.........It was a great game. An emotional roller coaster for fans of both teams. I assumed you were a Bungles fan. Up here in the NW corner of Pa. we have quite a few Browns fans since Cleveland is only an hour and a half west. Most of them can't remember the last time the Browns won anything but their parents do so they were raised to be Browns fans. I think it's a form of child abuse! ;) The NFL in it's infinite wisdom though has decreed that the Bills are the "local" team here though and the local TV stations have to show Bills games first whenever they play. There might be 3 Bills fans in this part of the state. The commercials were violent this year. How many times did they punch that koala bear? The "boxed flower" industry is probably kaput too.

Sharon..........So that's why Jeff has that Steelers bike!

E_B - He fell in love with that bike when he saw it! He is from Pittsburgh so he comes by it naturally LOL! Gorgeous picture!
Kiska - Any news on when the eruption will begin? I hope you are able to take your trip.

I almost wish I had stayed up to watch the game, but I slept really good LOL!

Haven't opened the blinds yet to check the rest.
Only 13 high predicted.
Tomatoes are up & growing!

Big party in Clear Lake, Iowa last night. It was the 50th anniversary of the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, & others. Over 2000 people from all over the world were there. Some from Australia, England, & all over the US.
Appearing on stage was Bobby Vee, who filled in the next night in Fargo, MN. He was only 15 at the time, but it launched his carrier.
I saw him many times at the Prom Ballroom in St.Paul, MN in the 1960's.

Clear Lake is only 100 miles from here, but I didn't make the trip.

Our forecasted low was 41* this morning, but we are at 37* now.

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

I poster the following on the previous thread and then realized there was a new thread for February so I copied and pasted it over here, too. Thank goodness for "copy and paste". LOL

I like to hear about your shopping and cabinet making, Bernie. Great idea top put the Corian on the router table.
Loving all the winter time shots, everyone--so pretty- and the cardinals are gorgeous!
EB, Nice comparison winter/summer shots, too, but I like summer better! LOL
Kelli: flying dragons and Buddha's hand--WOW!
Kiska: I heard on the news that the folks in Anchorage were stocking up on emergency supplies in anticipation of the volcano eruption!
Pepper: I will tell Friday that you think he looks "dapper". :o))

Marylyn; sounds like you had a busy day on Sunday! We did, too, mostly with church activities as well.
LOL at Jeff, Sharon!
I drove up here to Harrison to my daughter's house on Saturday--a beautiful day for a drive--the sun was shining and it was in the high 50's. . However, the ice storm certainly left behind its "calling card"--thousands of trees damaged or uprooted. It looked as if a giant tornado had come through most of north Arkansas and ripped out the tops of most of the trees! Terrible! My daughter's lawn, front and back, was literally covered with tree limbs and more limbs hanging from the tops of the trees. They were fortunate (thank You, Lord!) that none of the limbs fell on their house. They had an estimate from a tree guy of $2500.00 dollars to remove the limbs but their church's disaster assistance team came yesterday with chain saws and rakes and cleared the whole yard out plus raked up all the leaves that had fallen previously and they were gone in a matter of 3-4 hours! and all for FREE!!
I took pictures of the ice storm's damage but the corner broke off the little card "thingie" and now it won't fit back into my camera. I had already uploaded most of the photos on the card to my computer at home but I suppose the latest photos are lost. I have another card at home but I did not bring it with me. :o((

There are still a lot of people in this area without power but the utility companies have many trucks and workers out trying to get the power back on to everyone.

The sun is shining and the current temp is 36 with a high in the 40's later today.

Everyone have a good day!

Cold and sunny. Not much of a breeze though which is good. lol.

pepper~not having a breeze certainly makes for a better, cold, sunny day.

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

The Super Bowl was great. I found a lot of the commercials to be infantile. We watch a lot of sports and the commercials tend to be either infantile or macho. They seem to be aiming for the stereotypical 20-something males. (No offense intended to the nonstereotypical 20-something males who are reading this.)

We have to get the front of the house treated for termites. :-(

I have been trying to get over nasal spray addiction. I know you're picturing some wasted, stoned, California hippy thing, but it's not as bizarre as it sounds. If you use over-the-counter nasal spray for too long, your sinus get dependant on it and won't stay open without it. Eventually, they won't stay open with it, either. I had reached that point and stopped cold turkey. Yesterday was miserable. It was like having a really bad cold. Decongestant didn't work, steam didn't work, camphor didn't work. The only thing to help much was to put an ice pack on my face. Also, if I layed on my side, one side of my head would stay open pretty well. Anyway, the worst of that is over now. I can breathe pretty well today with the aid of decongestant tablets and camphor.

Oh, Kelli, you poor thing... That sounds really miserable. :-( I sure hope you feel better soon! And I'm sorry about the termites, too. ugh...

It's 66 and sunny here. It still hasn't rained. I need to run the sprinkler tomorrow to soften the ground up so I can finally get to the weeding.

Look! Our humidity is lower than Kelli's!!! I'm not sure that has ever happened before. LOL

Marylyn, you must be ready to shrivel up and blow away! That reminds me. I need to turn on the humidifier so I don't get all itchy later. And I'm feeling pretty decent today in the sinus department. Yesterday was awful, but today is close to normal.

Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

kelli~ glad to see that you're doing better than yesterday. Certainly must be miserable. Loved seeing snow and palm trees together. Beautiful country.
Marylyn~weeding in the middle of winter seems unusual:) Nice to be outside, though, I'm sure.
Minus 8F snowing lightly.
