About 65f this morning - it's 8 a.m. here now. Had my windows open all night listening to a "nor-easter" blowing. I love the feel and sound of these big winds coming through. The air is freshest at that time and everything - including your thoughts - just seem to clear up.
It's kind of drizzly and cloudy here in Michigan. I'm guessing it is up near 38 degrees this morning. We have been getting rain here for a couple days, and we actually had some thunderstorms roll through here Saturday night. But, it is supposed to drop back down into the 20s, with snow most of the week. This is the time of year, when weather in Michigan starts to freak out. You never know what it is going to do.
USA temperatures are in farenheit, australias are in celcius. Its moderate here, good cloud cover, but we want more rain.... The Australian Open is on, so people seem to be holding it off mentally,.. yet we want our dams full and after last years bushfires where people were killed, we want the weather mild and cool.. a bit of rainfall would not do us harm.
It's all the way up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit...which has allowed the snow to fall and the winds to blow. The last couple of days the wind has been blowing at 30-50 mph and turned the roads into a sheet of ice in many places. Last night we had to go up the mountain and someone had learned that the hard way and dropped a minivan off a 60-some-odd-foot drop. Luckily the snow was really deep and they didn't roll, both people got out alright and after a little over a half an hour we were able to get them up to the road (even on the slope the snow was knee-deep)...just a good thing we happened to be passing right after they went off, though, because other than the lady that had been driving right behind them there were no other cars on the road the entire time we were trying to get them out. That minivan is toast, obviously, and if it doesn't sink in the mud this spring it'll be headed for the scrap yard, there's not a truck in the state that could get that sucker out of there right now.
The moral of this story is...if you're ever traveling in a wintry climate, make sure you have more footwear along than high heels and cowboy boots. I thought the lady was going to have frostbite by time we got her to the car, or that one of us was going to have to try to carry her, and my husband ended up pulling the roughly 300lb. guy up the slope with very little help from him because those boots just wouldn't get any purchase...and the dude was in a slight amount of shock too, I think.
I think it's about time for sitting in the shade with a good book in one of those warm places! Only 2-2 1/2 more months of true winter here, then it'll be slush and then summer.
This is the first time I have been into a relationship because I was too career focused. My boyfriend used to be a renowned playboy and I often feel the jealousy inside. I get irritated when he is with other girls...
