And... we... have... snow! Just flurries at present. We might get as much as 2 inches! The dogs will love that. Looking at the weather map, I doubt very much if we're going to be in the 'your screwed' region, and I didn't get to the liquor store yesterday, so I failed to take that advice. Honestly, the precipitation event doesn't seem to be entering into the picture. The temperature drop is. Our high on Christmas day is forecast to be a balmy 17 (F). That's the predicted high. I'll just crank up the heat a bit. According to UGI, I've used 19% less natural gas this year than I did last year. The temps have been about the same, so I that's interesting.
Speaking of UGI, one of their guys was next door yesterday for around a half hour. I suspect he was assessing the furnace, which is very old. I sent a text to my neighbor across the street who so desperately wants to rummage through the rubbish the previous owner left behind. She told me she saw a crockpot sitting on kitchen shelf and I asked to myself, why would you want a used crockpot? I do not understand this need some people have for acquiring things for free; that doesn't make it better. Free does not equal quality, durability, or long life. Having a lot of junk does not make you important.

Only 88 of the 213 Republican members of the House were there for Zelenskyy's speech and 7 of those present refused to stand: Boebert, Gaetz, Jordan among them. The Republican party is worse than pathetic. The authoritarian government they dream of would lead to civil unrest and chaos. They will never understand until they are taught to respect Democracy. Taking the high road has only emboldened them. The time has come for us to speak softly, but use a big stick. This is the only way they will learn.
Whether you agree or disagree with a world leader like a president, you're for the war or against the war or your for sending funds or against funds. They should have at least some couth and respect and decorum to stand for a president of a country. It's just a decent thing to do. Obviously these people have no taste are immature, and we're not brought up right.ReplyDelete
I do believe they thought they were lobbing visual hand grenades, and I'm sure certain members of their cult approved of their decision to show disrespect, but, as one conservative put it: Reagan was no doubt spinning in his grave.Delete
Stay safe and warm, Dave R. Today was our coldest day and then it starts to gradually warm up. Hannity has deserved the big stick for a long time. He is definitely way overdue.ReplyDelete
I'm not planning on going anywhere while the temps are so brutal. I'm rather enjoying Hannity getting the big stick. You're right, it's time.Delete
I agree with Maddie - at a minimum they could show some respect!ReplyDelete
That's more than bad parenting, they're a disgrace.Delete
