He's lost weight recently due to a new diet for his kidneys. He used to be ~26.

His sister lost weight too, she's down to 13 from 17.

Think that happens as they get older (14)

Care to share that diet?  I could afford to lose a few pounds.

Snowing in NH right now but it's going to change over to sleet, freezing rain, and possibly rain today.  Oh well...electricity is overrated.  But after December 2008 and February 2010, any power outage less than a day is just a blip.

Ahh I remember the days in my youth when the power would go out for a week. We had a gas stove and a wood stove so all are our friends in the neighborhood would come over for dinner. The little store down the road would give away ice cream before it could melt. In my memory it happened at least once a winter.

We lost power for 10 days at my house in Orlando after hurricane Charley.  That was in August of 2004.  Summer in Central Florida without AC or fans is less than pleasent.

Funny thing was, I was working at an Orlando Utilities power plant at the time.  Plenty of AC at work.  Unfortunately I lived in a Progress Energy service area, and power service was slow to be restored.  It was a line crew from Iowa that finally got the power back on in my neighborhood.  There were line crews from just about everywhere in the US working that hurricane.  I met some great linemen that summer.

We had four hurricanes in six weeks in 2004.  I moved to Hawaii in January 2005.

:o

That would be enough to make me move too.

I saw 18F this morning - I'm not sure what the record is for this date in my neighborhood, but Seattle had a record low of 21F at 4AM.

Partly Cloudy and Windy. 60F right now.

...but a line of heavy showers with strong wind gusts of 40 to 50mph  :o are possible with this line of showers.

Time to batten down the hatches here in Delaware.

I guess there won't be a BBQ for me this afternoon.  :(

I guess our 5th season has started: the windy season.  It's calm right now with winds about 20 mph, but later it's supposed to get up around 60 or so, like the past couple of days.  While other areas get sever weather warnings about winter storms or things like that, we stay under a high fire danger alert.  We had lots of rain early last spring so the grasslands all did great, but with no moisture at all all winter this whole region is bone dry.  I've seen these spring grass fires cover 75 miles in an afternoon, usually only stopping when they get to the 4 lane highway between the towns of Eunice and Lovington. 2 years ago soldiers at an Air Force base were using live ammo of some kind at a target range and managed to burn half the buildings in a very small town on the plains.

The lights were already flickering at work from the wind.  I think I'll be heading out a bit early before the 60 mph gusts start.

Well we had some of those 50 mph gusts and my pasture was blanketed in snow
that the wind moved over into the driveway.. made a 5 foot pile along the driveway
and I hope It does NOT come again till this melts a bit.

Scale...that is a 5 ft tall shovel standing there

It's sunny and warm here though a cold front is moving in and it's cooled off since noon.  But the freaking wind has been blowing 35-40 with gusts up to 60.
