I have not posted since the one about the furniture for sale as my desktop computer bit the dust on a Saturday night a week ago. Aaargh. The computer guy took it to see what he could save and called
once to say it is a "mess" and then no other words. I'm not optimistic.
I'm now writing on the laptop which I cannot type fast on, so this IS a labor of love and aggravation.
The excitement around here is the cold, the amount of snow just two hours north of here and the
fact that as I write this, the highway 57 from Laredo to San Miguel is shut down! Of course, I have
friends supposedly arriving tomorrow who are driving. I'm so hoping that my email to them reaches them before they attempt to cross the border.
The photos that I have seen show eighteen wheelers backed up for as far as the eye can see! Yikes.
And, just in case you want to know, YES, it is as cold as "a rat's ass in Alaska" here. Twenty-six on the downstairs thermometer this morning at 8:30AM! Brrr. Sixty-one F. inside the house. YES, my nose and hands are cold.
But, the solution is to go outside and sit in the sun to thaw. I'm going to do that in just a minute or two. Just thought you would want to know how things south of the border are fairing.
One word - COLD!
