Never thought I'd say it but, Thank daGhawds for ice & snow! I lost a fifty-dollar bill about three weeks ago. Well, I found it again today; embedded in a half-inch of ice in my own driveway, preserved like a fly in amber! Good thing it was freezing rain that night and not windy.

Good thing it wasn't snow and got shredded in a snow blower.

Grats on getting your money back, anyway. . . ;)

I keep telling people out here that cold is good.
No one believes me.

Fine for you to say in SUNNYVALE, Cal. You guy's town namers really know how to hurt your more northern neighbors.

Brrrr, 10 F high today, below 0 tonite. Outside a blinding white, white world.
Fixed a burst water pipe (inside) yesterday. Hope it holds. At least there's no mosquitos now. The alternative to cabin fever here is frostbite.

Yah, we've had a little warming trend the past few days, which is why all the snow was gone enough to see the sheet-ice below it. A couple more days at these temps, and I'd have never found the missing fifty.
