Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, your popular host, Mani the purebred border collie, here today to talk about the changes in the weather. You may remember me from such posts as “Our Winter, Thus Far”, among so many, many others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose. You can see that the sun was shining, and things were pretty good. That was a couple of days ago.
Even though there was still ice on my walks.Yesterday it was seventy-one degrees. A typical temperature for this time of year, but it used to happen more often.
There were snowdrops in flower out in the garden. “Finally”, he said. It started to snow last night. We’re supposed to get about a foot of snow, and by Tuesday night the temperature will be about five below zero. So a seventy-five-degree drop in temperature in three days.
The guy I live with is not at all happy about this. He said he was so tired of winter and being cold (except for yesterday) he could scream, but he didn’t.
I could end this post right here, but the guy I live with said we should show some more of the children’s books that are in the bookshelves upstairs, so that’s what I’ll do.
HHis wife went up to Boulder to visit her, with a friend, one year. She got some hand-made watercolor paper, as a gift from Anne Ophelia Dowden, which she treasured, and used to for the watercolors for the books the guy I live with and his wife did.
Until next time, then.
