I was watching the news about a hugh snowstorm in California, they said they got 2 - 4" of snow. LOL that's what we call a light dusting here. Today we have gusty winds up to 36 mph. I expect somewhere that's a light breeze, but it's pretty fierce here. It's all in your perception of what's normal. It's 55 degrees here which is comfortable for us, but probably chilly for others.

We've been walking at Walmart most days because it's too cold or windy to walk outside. I don't think the Walmart is nearly as busy this year as it was the last 2 years. I don't know if that's because people are shopping somewhere else or if they are just not shopping.

I got another prescription today for $5.45. I ran out of coupons for prescriptions though so no free groceries. Maybe some more will come out after the first of the year.

I finished reading the library book Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich. Mystery - very good.

    Actually, we had huge storms, tons of rain, and 9 feet of snow in the mountains. It's been the tons of rain, wind and thunder/lightning (all pretty rare), down here at sea level.

    I think the 2-4 inches was *rain*, which is a lot of rain and pretty unusual here. That is definitely relative. I heard So Cal got 1/3 of their average annual rainfall this weekend - we also got about 1/3 of our average annual rainfall over the weekend (5 inches in one weekend - flooding everywhere). Might not sound like much, but we don't have anywhere for all that rain to go!

    55 is downright balmy to me. It has been below the 30 degree mark for the past couple of weeks! :-/

    55 is VERY nice to me. Its pretty much ben low 20's/less here in metro Chicago. I am already ready for winter to be over.

    Also Love Janet Evanovich. Have read ALL her stuff including Wicked Appetite (have a GREAT library).
