Weather Update

I was worried about the "winter storm" that was to hit our area last night. It turned out to be a non-story. The temperature plummeted from 60 to 20 in the past 24 hours, but there was no significant wind and no precipitation. None. Nada. Nil. Although our oldest granddaughter says there was some snow yesterday. If so, I didn't see it. Radar suggested there was snow to the east of us last night.

So, this morning, a beautiful, beautiful morning -- brisk but beautiful.

So, there you have it.
