A winter rain is falling and I’m glad it has transitioned from sleet to rain. Looks like the weather forecaster got it right today which is good since my 81-year old mother is driving from Richmond to Greensboro for a visit. I should mention that my 81-year old mother loves driving and can still go long distances without stopping – a trait I did not inherit. I like to go places, but I don’t like to drive. It bores me.
We just had almost a week of temps in the 50s so I can’t really complain about the 30s today. I don’t want to jinx it but after a cold November the predicted “hard winter” has yet to materialize. Fine with me – although I would like at least one good snow. The kind that begins on a Thursday evening just after I get home from work and continues into the next morning so there’s no question I have to stay home. Yes please – but just one.
