Damn but it's cold! Yet the window of opportunity for snow Thursday morning has been narrowed to a single hour from 3:00 to 4:00 AM. But then a week from Thursday, which will be March 1, the forecast now says there is a 60% possibility of snow most of the day, except for a couple of hours in the afternoon when it might turn to rain. That's along way off, of course, and the forecast will undoubtedly change, but it's nice to think of a snowy day. And by then all the flowers that bloomed prematurely will already be long dead, so no loss there. |
But the fact that it's still going to be cold enough to snow at the beginning of March makes me wonder how long this reborn winter is going to persist. There won't be much time after that (ten days or so, I think) until PG&E totals up my next bill, and if it stays cold until then my March could end up being even higher than my January bill was. That would be terribly inconvenient, as my January bill was very high indeed.
Right now I'm impulsively ruining my dinner with a cheap, off-brand donut from a package of half a dozen I bought at the Grocery Outlet Sunday. It has a revoltingly sweet glaze on it. I'm thinking maybe I could palm the rest of them off on my nephew. He's eaten enough of my good stuff over the years, so he should at least be willing to eat these things to make up for it. I am going to go make some ramen now. Maybe it will get the taste of excessive sugar out of my mouth. I hope I don't fall into a diabetic coma before I can reach the kitchen.
