It was nice yesterday. Now it's just cold. The rain and snow start sometime Friday. I won't be going anywhere Friday but it just might clear up enough for Saturday. John
Is it bad there today or Friday is when it starts?
This morning, it was almost 30 degrees warmer on the drive in, it was 13f!

After missing work last weekend because of the weather, it warmed up nicely. Now Friday, it's supposed to get nasty again with more freezing rain. Snow we can deal with but ice just doesn't work. I wouldn't mind staying home but I need the work. John
An artic blast hit us the other day. YEsterday it was -1 for the high. On the way to the office today it was -15f. But it will break today as I hear we expect about 21f for the high. :)
No kidding? I sure thought it was funny when I saw it. The paper was really thin and there was a lot to it. It included "A Christmas Carol", "David Copperfield", "A Tale Of 2 Cities", "Oliver Twist", and "Great Expectations" . Of course, his writing was instrumental in reforming the nightmarish conditions of England at the time, and I loved "Christmas Carol", but otherwise, his writing was so dark and depressing, I figured I'd read all the Dickens I was going to. I was surprised too, that Dickens didn't write those books all at once. They came out in installments one chapter at a time, and each chapter was influenced by the public reaction to the chapter before. You could tell when the public had had enough and the stories suddenly lightened up. After I read "Tale Of 2 Cities", I saw the Mel Brooks movie, "History Of The World" and suddenly, the scenes from the French Revolution made sense! Brooks took that part straight from Dickens and it made it all the funnier!
I never get into Leawood Kansas or Overland Park, but I'm in Kansas City and Independence a lot. In fact, I'm in Independence so much I'm surprised I never saw their Barnes And Noble. I was supposed to be in Kansas City last night but the ice storm kept us home. John
John! You will not believe this, but that very episode of Mike and Molly with that Charles Dickens book was on here at 6:30 last night! The book is huge!
