Good Morning, it's a dark, cold winter morning here in the Pacific Northwest.  The weather guy tells us we hit a record low temperature in this area last night.....18 degrees.  The last record  lowest temperature was in 1975 when it went down to 22 degrees.  I believe most of these temperatures are measured at Seattle-Tacoma Int'l Airport, so some areas may be a little lower and some a little higher.

They're forecasting another nightmare commute this evening.  More snow is predicted late this afternoon and thru the night but sometime early Thursday morning it's supposed to "warm" up a little and the snow will turn to rain.  So the Thursday morning commute could be ugly and then hopefully after that it should get better.    

There are still hundreds of abandoned cars littering the highways and side roads.  And thousands of houses and businesses are still without power.  My heart goes out to those people with no power in this very cold weather. 

Well, folks have a good day....I'm off to brave the very slippery streets and get to work. Linda

P.S. I did go out in the dark and the cold last night and cover those outdoor faucets...hopefully not too late.  When it warms up, I'll know.

I have those insulated covers on my outdoor spigots.  I'm so glad I don't have to deal with blistery snow storms!

I had covered the pipes on our last  home but, since we've moved - I just realized I never did anything with these pipes.  Nor have I even thought of checking them.  UGH.  I just want to stay inside nice and toasty warm.  However, I have to work this evening.  I wonder what it will be like when I get off work at 10 pm?
