Compared to ours, your area has been balmy.  Yet I don't think I could put up with constant weather changes.  We have them here, but they're not drastic.

 

It's why we decided not to move to the Kansas City area.  Ice storms, tornadoes.  Not interested in battling Mother Nature.

 

Maybe I'm meant to live in the high desert.

 

I'll keep my eye on your weather and keep my fingers crossed.

Groundhog Day 2022: Punxsutawney Phil Makes Winter Prediction

 

Pennsylvania's most famous groundhog emerged from his burrow on a cold Wednesday morning and saw his shadow, declaring there would be six more weeks of winter.  Punxsutawney Phil made his annual prediction as another major winter storm is expected to bring heavy snow, ice and freezing rain to a large portion of the country.

@geezerette Ugh, good luck and stay warm.  Fingers crossed you don’t lose power. I hope you stocked up on your Haagen daz.

I can't either.  It was a toss up whether or not we'd come here, let alone stay for any length of time.  But once we moved all the way cross country, it was too much of a hassle to move again.  So be careful about about wanting to be somewhere else.  Every place has its good points and its bad points.  


I may get somewhat of a break on the weather.  I just watched the noon newscast and the excessive freezing rain line seems to have moved just a touch so that I'm on the border of perhaps getting more sleet/snow than freezing rain.  

 

That would be better since the chances of losing power go down.  But I still could get frozen stuff and maybe 4" of snow.  I'm cool with that if I can keep my electricity on.  Might be inside for a few days until it melts, but I bought enough groceries to last.  

(If I keep my power on, I can bake that frozen pizza I bought to help keep the house warm.😉☺️)

 

And I wonder why I can't lose weight...🤨

 

Actually, I don't 'wonder' at all.  I know exactly why!🤭

Too cold for that.  I don't eat ice cream in the winter.  I substitute cream and sugar in my coffee instead.  (I think this might have even more calories than the Haagen Daz!😳)

 

Thanks.  You keep warm and dry too.  Some of this is headed your way.

I'm watching the snow come down.  It's a freakin' blizzard and I have to be on the road in a couple hours.  New Mexicans can't drive in snow.  Rain is a challenge.  It's 23 degrees and, depending on which website you're looking at, it feels like 7 or -5 degrees.

 

The wind is impressive.

 

Probably should have postponed all that trimming this week.

Re: The Bee Hive -- February 2022 Edition

I'm going to leave for work early.

 

Why didn't we get this storm on my day off?  I'll need to speak with someone about that.

 

Later! Heart

Re: The Bee Hive -- February 2022 Edition

WOW! Your weather stinks compared to mine! Hoping you don't get hit hard!
I can't say weather hits this hard in Fruita. We seldom get rain or much snow. That is the reason many people retire here.
It's not a pretty town but the weather is mild and you always can see the mountains. So it is pretty in those areas.
Don't miss the Tornado scares.
Be careful and stay safe!

PS, I like dogs better then puppies!🙂 The traing is the hardest part....She is a work in progress 🤔 Goldens are easier then some other pups though. Rocko doesn't like other animals but Marigold is trying hard to impress him.
She likes him.....He glares at her.🙄 I think he will get used to her, I hope!
Take care all and get ready to bundle up!
Brisk out on ground hog day.......

Re: The Bee Hive -- February 2022 Edition

I take that back... Fruita is actually pretty. Lots of cows and horses over here. It's and old Town but quaint and small. The people are pretty nice too. Honestly not a bad place.
Just small......
They also enforce law and order....OK, good town!🙂
