Thirty-two degrees outside; fifty-seven degrees inside (9:45 AM). I’m wrapped in a blanket with the little electric heater at my feet and legs. The furnace isn’t working!! Yesterday I stayed home; today I’ll “hang out” in the CARE Center (with heat).

Postscript, 10:15: “Got heat?” ~~ “Yes.” (Maintenance came to check… and [“it’s a guy thing”] the furnace started working.)


Guilty signPostscript, 11:00 AM: I’m feeling guilty!! The bird feeders are empty and birds are on the ground and around the empty feeders looking for seeds. I **should** refill but hate to go out in the cold!!!!! Only thirty-three degrees outside; sixty-three inside.


Mid-afternoon and the icicles have not melted!!

    I hate to see the poor plants, and hear about the heat problem…but it’s actually kind of pretty. You got some neat pictures.
