Told Ya So

I can see the satisfied smirks on the faces of the weather people as they look at thermometers today.  (What is the generic term we are supposed to use?  Oh, right.  Meteorologists!)  They were right, in spades.  After a not-so-cold morning, the temperature started dropping yesterday.  Tree Guy came in early afternoon to weatherize the sprinkler system for the new trees and it was doggone cold by then.  I'm a wuss and went back in the house to thaw after he left.  Later, a hoped-for ray of sunshine broke through and it was now-or-never time.  Putting foam wrap on pipes is not rocket science, but Steve or the boys always took care of that.  I really like the challenge of doing something new.  Whether I did it correctly remains to be seen, and I won't have to wait too long.  It is 24 degrees this morning.

Congrats on tackling the pipes, and holy moly...I looked at your projected weather this week, and it says that there will be 3 lows in the teens...and possible snow on Saturday. I'd be shiverin' me timbers! Glad your porch is full!

Ditto here. Thankfully no burn ban last night.
