    No pool partys today!

    It is unusual for the Treasure Valley (Where Boise is located) to get a lot of snow, and when it does snow it does not stay long. Hardly ever do we see much snow before Christmas. However, this year is a bit different. We are getting our third snow in excess of 4" in a week. I know that's not much compared to what some of you have seen, but it's a bunch for here. It's a good thing I've got lots of inside stuff to do! The LOML and I have been going through boxes of books and magazines and papers and 'purging'. Something that is way overdue. Good way to begin a new year!

    The first picture is of the pool - looks a little too cold for swimming. Also shown are some early attempts at "Levine" chairs, the BBQ (which we do use during the winter) and the car and truck that I will have to dig out..... eventually.

    Well, I feel for you Rennie. We had 60 degree weather here in KC yesterday, several inches of rain and lightning, and wind gusts of up to 45 mph. My neighbor's patio furniture was across his yard. Another neighbor's new pin oak was (well half of it) two houses down. Dropped to 29 degrees by 9 AM and looking to get some snow this afternoon. Never know what to expect here in the midwest.

    He said he uses it during the winter, Allen.

    It was about 18 when we got up this morning. We had some snow yesterday, but not enough to measure, and today and clear and sunny and COLD!!! The temp here at 1:00 p.m. has gotten all the way up to 27, and the wind is chilling.

    Actually, that old grill has been out in the weather since we bought it 11 years ago. I've replaced the burner twice and the grates once! I keep waiting for a good excuse to replace it, but it won't die.

    60's in Washington, DC today. Of course Bill Lantry will tell you it is freezing rain so he can't finish his wife's kitchen.

    It was in the upper 60's here today, was cutting fire wood in a t shirt. Too bad it was muddy as all get out. had to drag the truck back to the road with the tractor
