I guess the record warm weather is over. Did British Columbia send theirs our way? Do I have to cancel this afternoon's patients?

Oh to have just one week of the white stuff. Sigh, we in the southwest will just have to watch the local news and keep reading your blog.

Thanks for adding me to your links! :) I've been nursing a bit of a nagging cold, so I'm not onblog as much. Saw on the news that the weather in the Chicago area is pretty nasty today....thundersnow? We've finally got our cold snap today too. It's 32 degrees right now. Be safe today if you have to go to work.

I hate snow. I had to walk over a mile up a hill to get to my car so I could work. I posted something on my blog about snow and climbing. My daughter who is in Kansas saw a foot of snow.
