    25 and cloudy, high of 33 by afternoon. Not much change. Calling for light snow today and tomorrow. Another good day to throw firewood. 25 above is T-shirt and flipflop weather in the Black Hills, pleasantly cool. I'm having coffee, checking on current events. Wood chores after taking in some political commentary. Midnight tonight is Social Security payday. Geezer Christmas!


    You all have a fine day.

    Edit add-on: Eat my words. I unloaded the firewood that was in the truck. Just above 20, snowing, with a light breeze. I had to put on snow boots and a flannel shirt. Ol' Man Winter is back, and he's camped out for a while. It's not a good day to go skinny-dipping.

    40*. I'm not outside. I'm not cold. I'm not retired. Phhhhhht.
    Would rather not be outside in the cold and damp.
    But I sure as heck would like to be retired.

    Not retired here either. I have worked outside my whole life. My Pop told me when I was a youngster and I was complaining about the cold "it builds character"

    Well, this morning it was kinda wet and getting wetter. The worse is in the west, and Wales. The storms over but the water has kept rising. The high point for flooding may be tonight.

    tranteruk, I hope you have a way to get to higher ground, if you have to.

    If I were over there will y'all, I'd be doing this too! Baking biscuits (oatmeal cookies)
    for everyone.

    Next to the #Upton flood barriers - here are 14 yr old Daisy and 12 yr old Doug Wearing who’ve baked biscuits
    and are taking them to ‘everyone who’s helping’. We’re hearing about this kind of spirit in every single
    community we’re covering and it’s amazing #floods @bbcnews pic.twitter.com/uoSSZucGtZ

    Geezers and skinny-dipping in the same post. That's a new wrinkle.

    34 out here and supposed to get colder as the day goes on. Still dark too, does anyone remember the last time they slept until sun rise? Just a rumor I guess!

    It's what you learn after you know it all that makes a difference.
