Although we had been buffeted by winter wind and rain storms the weather on the coast has been mild and temperatures fairly warm till Sunday when everything changed. The temperature dropped and about a foot of snow dumped itself in my back yard! As if that was not enough today the temperature has plumeted and tonight we are going to see the temperatures drop to about -10 with a wind chill factor of -18--20! I think it may be time to let Lucy sleep with me. Just for her sake of course!
