Nasty.....

.... the foul weather that has played here today has not taken a break since well before daybreak - and it still shows no sign of abating now that darkness is approaching..... rain, sleet, wind, and gloom....... actually, it probably isn't even safe to use the term "darkness is approaching" since it has not brightened in the least since dawn.... it's almost like Today just really didn't want to show up for work.... so he slithered in quietly - hung over and rubbing his unshaven chin- and promptly fell asleep at his desk.... and now that it is quittin' time, the guy in the next cubicle over roused him, told him he stank, and pushed his sorry ass out the door towards home, a shower, and his bed........

... good god.... the past ten hours of precipitation, mist, and heavy cloud have dulled the Heart and Soul of My Day..... in fact, I haven't seen a wind-driven, plodding, incessant rain like this since I left Scotland ten years ago..... and that, gentle rubberneckers, is saying something.....

....however, all things being equal, my fortitudinous soul has persevered over these adverse weather conditions with the assistance of homemade chili-cheese nachos and a few cups of cherry yoghurt..... and soon?..... the subtle, warming relaxation of a sapphire Gin and Tonic (lightly stirred & served with a slice of lime, of course...).... after all, just because Mother Nature is in a beastly mood there is no need for US to act uncivilized, is there?...... indeed, no.....

.... so, how's it been where y'all have been?.....

Bullshit So Far

As you can probably surmise, it's been about as beastly here as it has been up your way.

At about 2:10 this peeyem, it rained like a cow pissing on a flat rock. Happily, though, no tornadoes. Yet.

Thank Gawd for single malt, a drink that comes from a land where such weather is more the norm.

Still in the low 80s, last few days adding scattered showers.
Tomorrow and the next day are supposed to drop into the 60s daytime and 30s both nights. More showers.

I refuse to start complaining, yet.

('my fortitudinous soul'...what a great phrase!)

We were sunny but in the low 40's most of the day then it clouded up around 3pm and suddenly turned into nighttime.

I don't mind. It's rather nice to make a pot roast, have a glass of wine and just wrap up in a down comforter and read. Or sit at the computer and type - take your pick. LOL.

I have no central heat or air yet, so when I came home from Ma's the house was freezing cold... So, I opened up windows since it was rainy but warm, and woke up to a house damp with condensation everywhere. The mirrors on either side of the front door were dripping like a glass of iced tea in august. The stair rail was damp and clammy and any window left closed was fogged over.
It was a little eerie... There was even a hint of fog in the downstairs hall. Enough to make me wonder about ghosts in my old house...

We have sunshine and cold wind - not so bad. We made a gnocchi and chicken stew.

It is wet and cold- "colder than a witch's tit in a brass bra" as my mother would say...
The wind has kicked up. Time for another cup of hot tea...
