Yesterday, it was 78 degrees F and today 75 degrees and yet tomorrow it is to be 77 degrees. Talk about squashing the Christmas feeling. :( My daffodils are eight inches tall and the cherry, forsythias and dogwoods are budding out. Sheesh.... (makes sme wonder what we are doing to this good earth <_< )

We watched Christmas movies in shorts yesterday afternoon!

WE have about a foot here! Snowing on and off today. Thankfully next week is supposed to be cold but no snow. I'll be waking up to neg. numbers on sat!

I'm glad we didn't get this massive ice storm...be safe to all who did get it!

No snow here but lots of rain/ice. They closed schools here too, but I don't know why! :huh: The weathermen all said that the temps will drop and everything will ice over - but that didn't happen. <_< It's "supposed" to snow tonight - which I'd rather see than this ice - but I'll believe it when I see it!

Snow here in Wisconsin, but that's what it's supposed to do! We made a snowman and shoveled the driveway, but you couldn't tell that part!

I live for snow days! I'm a teacher (:

The weather is strange anymore....when I was little it would get cold by the end of October and stay snowy and ugly until April....now it is still fairly warm until Jan. The last few New Years I remember wearing a light sweater.

Glad those who have the snow like it. I'd move in Momma Goose's area in a snap if I could.

Here in NJ (I am in city area, north eastern side of state - 45 minutes away from NYC) snow grinds everything to a halt. There's no where to put it when it's over a foot..every square foot of land here is a building...no empty spaces to dump snow. It creates multitudes of accidents because people here still have to go to work in it ....I only remember once the Governor declared a "snow emergency" after a blizzard in 1996.

Employers expect you to get to work at your normal time after 6 inches of snow....schools have delayed openings and if you have little ones employers in NJ don't realize that you can't leave for work until the school opens and you're kids are in school. That could be 11 AM. I've seen people get in trouble at work for this (a very very large, worldwide bank that prides itself on being good to their employees - PM me privately if you want to know their name). I never worked for a company that declared a "snow day." Jeez, they barely let you go home early if there's several inches of snow on the roads...I have co workers who have a normal half hour drive to go home and the employers wait so long to let you out that one of them took almost 4 hours to get home; the plows couldn't keep up with the rate of snowfall on the Garden State Parkway. I had a 15 minute drive turn into an hour that same day.

Anyway, I and my husband can no longer shovel snow -- so any accumulation is problemic for us....

This weather is starting to worry me. I am supposed to be going to get my mom to spend the weekend with us, now this winter weather tomorrow and again calling for it this weekend might cancel my plans...so disappointing...

    For what it's worth, I've noticed that if it's just iodine I will not get any other symptoms. In addition to the rash, I typically get GI symptoms, fatigue, and sometimes joint swelling when I ingest gluten. I don't typically eat seafood or stuff with lots of iodized salt, but sometimes I do on special occasions knowing that there will be some relatively minor consequences. Typically this is because I am traveling - canned tuna, salty snacks, jerky etc. are often the only nutritionally bala
    While a Celiac reaction requires actual consumption of gluten, I take no risks.  Sunscreen might melt into my mouth a long bike trip or I could bite a nail.   I use CeraVe lotion for my face.  In winter, I use their heavier cream.  I also use the Equate “CeraVe” version by Walmart which is made in Canada.  I use a lot of sunscreen.  I buy Equate which does not contain gluten, is recommended by Consumer reports and is inexpensive.  Do not use CeraVe sunscreen.  For some reason they changed t
I get those same bumps on the sides of my fingers sometimes. Always wondered what they were.
