Woo. Dave here. If you're logging on today, be sure to compare our weather to Siberia's! As of this writing, our real temp is 17 degrees COLDER than in Archangelsk! And our wind-chill is 26 degrees colder! How cool is THAT?!?!? Yeah..... mighty cold. Uh.... cool.
The "authorities" said we had 90% chance of snow yesterday; Amber said nothing. Wanna guess who was right? Now they say it could come today. I haven't asked Ammy yet, but I'm sure she knows.
In a comment to yesterday's post by Zim, Marvin said he isn't allowed upstairs. Zim told him, "We can go up there, except if we have overnight guests coming. The upstairs here is only guest rooms and a bathroom. Mom keeps those doors shut unless there's company coming. That also gives me an idea for a future post..."
We had overnight company coming a couple years ago, and Mom did all those "cleaning" things she likes to do. She spent a lot of time upstairs, too, then left the doors open to the guest rooms. Here's my little bro, checking out the back guest room:
That led to a lot of excited talk from Mom (I imagine she was thanking Zim for fluffing the bed up there?) and eventually, once she separated Zim from his work, led to her putting a kiddie gate across the stairs. Then she decided to put the sitzbank there instead, thinking it would be a bigger "barrier". I'm not sure what that means. Or why she'd want to do that. Woo.
He was down here ... And now he's ... hey, Dave! How'd you do that?
It was great fun and gave me and Zim a new Furniture Olympics challenge until the company came.
Marvin, I don't know how your mom keeps you from going to your upstairs, but maybe this will give you a helpful idea. Use your legs like springs! Woo!Luv, from bitterly cold but snowless Kansas,
