but were usually back inside withing 20, max 30 minutes.
Against all meteorological odds, it decided to snow in Raleigh (yes, Raleigh!) today, and to make those odds even steeper, it snowed more than they predicted!
They have closed schools around here for the threat of snow that never even happened, so this was pretty cool.
After accomplishing anything worthwhile we could think of, by evening Paula and I were beginning to suffer the early stages of Febrem cameram, or by its common name, Cabin Fever.
"Time for a Polar Bittanic Expedition!" she bravely exclaimed, pulling on all sorts of rarely-used anti-cold clothing.
It really was beautiful outside, with the snow still falling softly.
Paula's gardens napped peacefully.
I think we were out for even longer than the Polar Bitannics of my youth, come to think of it. However, it's still nice to get back and warm up your toes.
North Carolina has a great solar snow removal system. Everything shuts down for a day or two, the sun comes out and it all goes away. The city only has three snow plows, and I'm not making that up. However, it's fun while it lasts.
We hope that your Expeditions go as well.
Dave & Paula
PS I still can't figure out where he got the 'Bitannic' thing, but the grandkids even say it now...
