A Severe Weather Watch of Our Very Own

I checked the weather this morning and was thrilled to see that we had a Severe Weather Warning, just like we saw before we left for Denver at Christmas. Okay, not "just like" that one, which brought 24 inches of snow to the Rockies in 24 hours.

This warning opened with the line to expect "much colder weather arriving today," perhaps reaching the 40's! There was a further alert for the evening:

A freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures for at least two hours are possible. These conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.

For those in the world fortunate enough to be growing crops in January.

Small excitements, what can I say?

P.S. Mir (and Mayberry) identified yesterday's song title correctly as "The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades" by Timbuk3. Girl Con Queso – I didn’t know they were from Austin. Another reason that's a cool city!

Yup, we're having that same "severe weather watch" ourselves. Gotta' cover my hibiscus at night, sheez. Snow as low as 3,000 feet, we'll see it on the surrounding mountains, cool! Ian will be excited.

*muttering "pansies" under my breath*

When we left for the bus stop this morning, it was 8 degrees outside. It was the first time the kids seemed really excited about moving to Georgia. ;)

Mamacita tina - Keep that hibiscus warm!

Mir - I don't even want to try to remember what 8 degrees is like.

Kristen - Thanks, I wore my big coat today. ;)
