"I don't do the weather."  That's the sentence I employ to describe the sort of relationships I form and my lack of skill for pulling off "casual acquaintance."  I'm here.  I'm really, really here.  Have you read the science of global warmingnot?  Did I tell you one of my eyelashes fell out yesterday?  What's your rapture stance?  I'm behind on laundry.  Are you following the birth certificate case?  What's your favorite font?

"I don't do the weather."  Try telling that, though, to Cousin Annie and Zoomer, who received from me a yesterday a blow-by-blow account of my cloud, wind, and temperature experience, when I delivered Bammy's breakfast: "Blue-gray ... warm ... the color of dirty snow ... fifteen minutes later the temperature was ... the front ... ten minutes after that the temperature was ... north northeast ... cold ... south southwest," and 5 photos.  I even copy-pasted two weather forecasts from The National Weather Center.  *rolling eyes*


And now I have a blogpost entitled .  I'm excited about it being 2º outdoors this morning.  Maybe even a little excited ... or exhilarated ... or shiveringly aware of it being 59º indoors.

I think I do the weather.

What's the temperature in your neck of the woods? 

Postscript:  Woo-hoo!  5:33 a.m., and it's dropped to 0.5º.  I SO do the weather!

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.  ~Matthew 5:6

Well, little Miss "I Don't Do The Weather" was -2° here at 8am. Yes, that was a "minus". So, it probably was colder than that earlier, not to mention the "minus" windchill temps. To your delight, I am reporting that is now up to -1.8°!!! Ü

-5 here last night at 6:15 when we were going out to see It's a Wonderful Life at the Kress Theatre. So cold, it froze our buggers.
I win, I win!

Lacey Loo!
*hands on hips*

Lacey said...

Hah! Right now it is -12!!

Well hey girl, if it's that cool in your house, then I'm inviting myself over for some of those leftover placecard cookies. This morning we were at -2!

Mrs. CarolineNot, Elijah would be proud that you're taking more interest in weather...lately he's been having us check NOAA 9 times a day, and claps his hands in glee when he finds out that we have -20 to -30 degree windchills. He's a nut! :D

Well, we might have 4" of snow on the ground, but out here in sunny California it's a balmy 29 degrees.

Morgan, it's taken me days to poke back in here and say I'd love nothing more than to have you at my table for cookies. Even if I wasn't tardy replying, they'd have had to be fresh-baked. You don't know how fast I can evaporate cookies. It's magical!

I got another laugh-aloud from reading again this morning of Elijah's weather fixation. He's such a corker! ºÜº
