Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
We've had it all this week. It was comparatively warm on Monday, then Tuesday was down to about 10F with a brutal wind. But sunny. Wednesday wasn't much different, perhaps a little warmer, but that's when my bathroom pipes burst.
I'm waiting for the plumber right now -- bathroom water has been shut off since Wednesday (which I can live with -- we have a composting toilet). Most of the damage was the pipes under the bathroom window, but it extended into the area under the sink. The problem there is that it's accessed through the closet in the bedroom...which I've been avoiding for several years because of flying squirrel damage. Okay. It's now safe for the plumber and I've not only cleared the floor TO the closet, but shovelled out the closet itself. And this will make it easier for me to do other things that need to be done. (If only the plumber will get here...)
It snowed all yesterday but it was pretty much a nuisance snow -- no real accumulation. Just made driving complicated. So I decided against the 55 mile round trip drive to The Press Room session late afternoon despite REALLY needing a music fix. (And to be with friends...) And freezing rain was predicted before I'd be coming home so that influenced me, too. And the fact that cleaning out that closet and schlepping heavy things down the stairs had worn me out. I was sound asleep in my comfortable bed before the session was over.
AccuWeather says it's supposed to be up to 50F today...but then, more realistically, says the "Real Feel" is about 36F. It's raining. And foggy. And it feels COLD, not 50°. And damp.
I'm feeling overextended...a bit depressed...and the weather is certainly NOT helping! And I can't even hunker down with a bowl of popcorn and episodes of "Stoney Burke" because I'm waiting for the plumber...
