Is this weather crazy or what?
My mother, Marion Serge, and my sister, Kathy Kirkland, came to visit on Jan. 20, and from the day they arrived until today, the weather has done nothing but rain and sleet. They couldn't wait to get out of the bad weather in Pennsylvania. My friends say they brought the weather with them.
On the plus side, we should have minimal fire danger this year.
It would be nice to see the sun shine. Last time I checked, we still lived in Arizona.
