Wednesday Musings,

What a gorgeous December day here in Dardenne Prairie. It is sunny and the temperature is right at 70 degrees. But tonight we are supposed to have a low of 27 and the high will be 32 tomorrow with sleet and snow starting and continuing until Friday, a possible 6 inch accumulation is predicted for the St Louis Metro area.

That’s the beauty part of being retired, if it snows you can stay inside with a fire going if necessary and not fight the roads. Donna isn’t schedule back to the restaurant until Friday night so by that time it should be over and plowed out. I haven’t dropped the deck or put the plow on John Deere. I told my son if he wanted to he could but since Mom & I both have 4 wheel drive vehicles, and we don’t plan o driving in snowy or icy weather. I’m not going out like I used to when Donna left at 05:30AM and plowing the driveway, we are retired from all that.

I hope it isn’t like year before last when the cold made it all the way down to Florida and Texas and everyone was freezing. We want our friends who were fortunate to make it south to enjoy their stays.

Not much going on Rigg’s is guarding the house by sleeping next to my chair while I type this. Sadie is sleeping also. I may just go in and put a train movie on in the guest room and kill a couple hours.

Hope all is well with all our friends out their in blog land. Please be safe. Sam & Donna….


  1. We've had rain and it's only in the 50's here today. Nothing to get excited about. It really is great to know we don't have to go out in any bad weather unless we want to.

  2. It was 77 today, but this weekend is suppose to be a character builder..ice coming our way...just great...Hey, we're not scared, we're from Northern Illinois!

  3. The big arctic blast is coming all the way to South Texas. Today 76, tomorrow 64 at noon, dropping to 51 later in the day, then 38 overnight. Friday's high temp will be 41 and Friday's overnight low is predicted to be 32. The cold temps will be with us for at least a week. Brr!
