I'M SPEECHLESS!  And I can't see through the tears.  I came in expecting to see some good news and our friend is gone!  I said it before and I'll say it now....It never ceases to amaze me at how much it hurts to lose someone I never even met face to face.  Even from this distance, it was easy to see he was loved and he loved his family.  I'm sure he is with God.

Patricia, like you, if the weather is bad, I don't have to go out in it.  When I mentioned working that ice storm it was 1976 and I didn't retire for 10 years.  I don't even get the mail these days as the road by the mailbox is iffy.  Tom may not pick up the mail until mid-afternoon, but he does get it and I can wait since much of my mail is just plain junk!

Radar shows us not getting snow, or any amount, for several days.  Lake Michigan has been frozen out to the outer lighthouse and that keeps us from getting lake effect snow.  We might lose some of the ice in the next few days as we'll be close to 40 degrees.  However, we won't lose all of the ice.

Jack, since I am on a higher floor, you might say I have a bird's eye view and my rent which they just increased, pays someone else to do the shoveling.

MaryAnn, our first ice storm in over one hundred years, occurred in 2015. I lost a week's pay, and it brought the city to a standstill. Now they are becoming more common. At least as Jack said, I don't have to go out unless someone takes me!

This weather is totally uncommon but becoming the new normal?

I recall someone posting photos of Buffalo, NY a few years back and saying I must be used to that. Not at all!

All good ideas Jeanne. I use refrigerator baskets to separate and store food in both the fridge and freezer. I also keep a list on a dry erase board so I can erase what's used and then add it to my grocery list. Once you take the time to learn what works for you and keep it up, it will save you money and time!

Patricia, I've seen trees like that many times.  That is a familiar sight around here, usually at least once a year.  I remember working during an ice storm in March 1976 when we had crews from all over the midwest to help our crews.

Callie...thanks dear, I can picture Hal with a big grin as he reads your message. And Yes, I do like the thought that our departed can still "know" us. I hope that is not sinful.

Angel. Wish I could organize my freezer like you do.Mine gets in a mess. I do end up throwing some things away that get buried in the back. I love that video showing all the uses of Clips. Going out to buy some
My shelf not quite like in that in the video but maybe I can find a way to hang like that. Same with wires for all electrical stuff. Going to put the video on desktop and figure some things out. Look for some small shelves for freezer.

Margaret saw the oncologist today.  She is NOT going to have to have chemo.  :hb2: She is going to have four weeks of radiation, and then will have oral hormonal treatment after that.

 I am stunned at the news about Hal.  My sympathy and prayers are with his family.
Since there will be no more "Yankee Dime bets" on TX/OK football games, here's one last  :-*  to a winner in every way.  He will be missed.
