We live southeast of Asheville around 55 miles or so. We did one of the round ups over your way back in my DG days and we took 40 all the way across.

Ack on the time change.

We've been to General Butler SP several times - VERY nice but then Kentucky, in my opinion, has the best parks in our country.

Not a time change, but a month change for our posts. They (govt) did set up an earlier time change. I am hearing bird calls outside, so perhaps spring will be here in spite of our snow.

Absolutely gorgeous out there... Mid 50s... That's why it's supposed to snow tonight through Sunday but no accumulation. Saw rain clouds everywhere but we didn't get anything. Guess I'm going to have to water soon. :(

Beautiful here too, but chilly. And looks like we're facing another major winter storm for sure.

Vic, sounds like quite a mess for Hank to clean up. Hilarious!

Well, while he's here, I have this new deck design and I was thinking maybe Hank would like to take a look at it. It sort of involves a tree or two but other than working around them it shouldn't be much of a problem since I'm seeing steps on the diagonal edge; not a problem for him at all

The hose and pump on the washer are fine. It's something in the dial thingy. It doesn't stop the water when the wash cycle kicks in. The water keeps running. It works fine on the rinse cycle, just not the wash cycle. For now, I'm just going to turn the water off and hang out in the laundry room. I have a work table in there and plenty to do. Hank's not so sure. We'll see.

Is it the kitchen drain that is clogged Sharon?

Storm expected here as well. We have tickets to an Orchestra Iowa concert in Cedar Rapids tomorrow night. Don't think we're gonna make it. Sad

Snow is supposed to start tonight and continue off and on through Sunday. Dangerous wind chills. Hope the snow holds off until later tonight. Wilma and I are planning a trip to our favorite pizza place in Williamsburg. It's our traditional before diet feast. We go on a 6-8-week diet every year about this time to shed the 10 pounds or so we've put on during the winter months. That way we don't keep accumulating pounds upon pounds as the years pass.

Yes, the kitchen drain that has all the elbows and loop de loops, ya know. But I'll get some powerful gunk and fix it again. Liquid Drano just didn't do it. Or liquid Plumber or whatever it was.

And that storm looks to be unavoidable, the one coming down from the North.
From the looks of things it will be an ice storm for us.

Our snow event this weekend has been updated - they have reduced our expected snow amount to 4 to 8 inches WHOOPEE! but have added in 25 mph winds BUMMER!
4 inches of snow with a 25 mph wind in 10 degree weather leads to huge drifts. More snow means more drifts. Maybe they'll revise it further and make it mostly go away! I can always hope!

I see improvement in next week's forecast finally. We might warm up to closer to normal soon.

Stay warm all you people east of me. Maybe this will be the last big blast of old man winter for this season!

Vicki perhaps you could just wash on the 'rinse' cycle. outsmart 'em, that's my motto

GREAT idea Lucy - anything to keep from calling the Maytag repair person Whistling

Jill - Praying for you and Larry and Sharon and all those in the path of this wicked storm Crying

Sharon - any chance you have a snake that could get down into those loops and shove it out to the sewer line?

Vic, that's why I make it a habit to not leave the washer running if I leave the house!

Yes, Sharon, a snake maybe?

No gardening for me today even thought the sun is shining and it's in the 50s. Accounting and getting tax records together to send the accountant tomorrow. So in a grumpy mood.

But the show was very good last night. Love Letters. Just two actors, sitting and reading letters written to each other over the years from childhood to adulthood. I wasn't sure where it would go but it kept our attention the entire time. They used a professional actor and someone from the community and in this case (different actors each night), my friend was acquainted with the male actor so she saw lots of friends who also came to see him perform. It was a good time!
