    What's happening...


    I do believe old man winter has finally found his way to the Midwest. Had he asked, I would have suggested he just keep right on going; he didn't ask. Currently, Council Bluffs is reporting a temperature of 21 with a wind chill of 12 and snow (feels more like 50 below to me). We're under a snow advisory until Monday morning with 4-5 inches expected. For those who make their home in Colorado, I'm not complaining. No, I'm just freakin' freezing! In fact, I can't wait to see this months heating bill. Since it's too cold to do anything outside, we're all huddled inside doing our own thing: CRC is watching football (nothing unusual), Chad is busy talking on the phone (and I thought only girls did the phone thing), and I'm reading chapter 1 in both my Group Counseling and Social Work & Social Welfare texts (in between surfing LEF). So, what's happening in your little corner of the world?




    Btw, what I wouldn't give to be in sunny Southern Florida right now.

    It's 30 here, so if you wanna head north and enjoy our heat wave you're welcome to!! We have a winter storm warning in affect for tonight, though, which shouldn't be a big surprise because anytime I have to work it pretty much guarantees some form of wacked weather.

    Darn, I need to pick up a USB cable for my cell phone so I can post pictures, too (I'm jealous ). Btw, I've moved up the ladder so to speak! I finally have a drive way (no more off street parking)! Speaking of snow blowers... I have one. His name is Chad and he's not happy with old man winter.

    Is this in your area, BEB? I heard it could take months for power to be completely restored.

    Yeah, that's just outside of Kearney. Bunch of small surrounding communities are still on generator only, not to mention rural people who have been on portable generators since Dec 31st. We lost something like 800 miles of power lines, a couple hundred of that being transmission lines.

    First time in my life I've seen the power company robbing transformers off dead lines to use to fix others because they ran out.

    We were supposed to have our family Christmas out at my grandparent's house in Kearney on Decemeber 31st. Yeah, that didn't happen.
