Dumped On By Diego

Woke up to this.  We were supposed to get 1-3 inches (3-8 cm)  They were saying we got more like 8-9 inches (20-23 cm) and it’s still coming down like crazy.   Worried about Ninja.Chickens who lives just outside of Ashville, NC.  Worried about all the folks in Diego’s path.

Got rellies in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.  I’ve heard from them and they’re OK.  Got rellies south of Houston.  Heard from them and they’re OK.  When I texted my friend in Key West a pix of snow he texted me back and said it was 80 F(26.6 C) there at 11 a.m.  Ain’t that here!  Current temp here is 30 F (-1.11 C) and still snowing. Believe I’ll stay in out of it.  Life in the Flatlands.

Never mind.  I got Pedro’s Tamales, hot tea, lap robes, a sizeable to-be-read pile on my Kindle, and a knitting challenge.   Say tuned . . . .Oh, and I’m done knitting washcloths.  (!!) Finished the basket for my duplex neighbor who has been so good to me this year.

My friend LB’s corneal transplant surgery went OK yesterday.  She had a doctor’s appointment today.  They’re from Minnesota, so they’re like, ‘really?’

My mom just emailed me that she’s lost her TV signal.  She has Dish TV. I keep telling her she needs to get cable, but no.  She’s memorized the channel numbers of the channels she likes and she’s finally learned how to work their DVD. I’m trying to teach her how to channel surf.  This is a woman who’s 12 years older than broadcast television, and 4 years older than sliced bread.

  1. I’d not heard of this “Diego,” but I’m glad all your people in its path are safe. I need to take a look and see where it’s going and what it’s up to. I was a little surprised to see that you got so much snow. On the other hand, it was a pretty good system. We’ve dropped thirty degrees, and got about 2″ of rain here — more farther north, and west, as you know.

    I’m glad to hear your friend’s transplant went well, although the thought of having to get out in the middle of snow and cold for a follow-up visit isn’t very pleasant. I had to laugh — they’re from Minnesota, but I’m from Iowa, and should know how to cope. I guess I could. I just don’t want to. Bring on the hot tea and etc.


  2. That much snow is a very rare event where I live; I think the last time was 8 years ago. I’m pleased that your family members are safe. We just have rain, rain and more rain.
    Your Mum is an absolute marvel!
