This could be my last post for awhile. Things are getting scary around here. The headline in today's Hooterville Daily Dish screams, "Snow forecast for Hooterville." Casa Sneed is located at 2592 ft. above sea level, so we are in the target zone. The local CBS TV affiliate, Channel 13 (a coincidence? I don't think so) has its team deployed at outside locations around the city, giving us updates. The fat guy who is built like a bowling pin just told us that it is windy and cold. Burr.... As of 5pm local time the temperature has dropped to 57 degrees. We don't know how much lower it can get before our infrastructure fails. Chuck the Weather Man keeps breaking into the news to show us cool green stuff on maps, which he assures us is incoming snow. We might be hicks, but Hootervillians know snow is white, so I don't know what Chuck is trying to pull. Chuck advises us that the best way to survive this is to check their website often. They have posted this picture on their website so that we will know what is possible. This file photo is neither in the city or a picture of today, but you get the idea. They say that we may get as much as an inch of snow in the city itself. I hope we can get out of the doors by morning. I hope work declares a snow day. I wish I had thought to get some cannned goods and bottled water. Damn it, where are the spare batteries? Oh, the humanity. Wish us the best, we need it. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

good luck; if you lived here, the populace would have stripped the grocery shelves of milk and bread (and beer).

Yesterday and today it was in the 50s here in DC, and we all thought that spring had arrived. I opened all the windows to air out the house yesterday, and all the joggers were running around in shorts and short-sleeved shirts. It is so amazing what a difference one's perspective makes, isn't it?

Snow in Arizona? Unheard of! Enjoy every flake if it actually happens.

Good luck to you and to clan Sneed. Be assured that we are praying for you to survive this emergency with minimal loss of comfort. In fact, I'm lighting a candle as soon as I finish typing this.

Unfortunately, it's too late for me to make a Novena. I'll need a few more days warning for that. Please remember this in future.

Want me to overnight my snow shovel to you, Merle? We've had no snow at all here in the Denver metro area...
