Merry Christmas to Helen and everyone!
The weather in Da Swamp at Xmas time is a gamble. Sometimes it's actually cold, like today. In '83, it went down to 13 F., and my then wife and I didn't have heat that night in our apartment. (We stayed warm, never mind how.) More often, though, the climate here matches my version of "winter Wonderland":
"Later on, we'll perspire.
"'Is that A/C? Turn it higher!'
"We drive and we grump
"O'er potholes and bumps,
"Sweating in a sticky swampy land!"
In a while I'm going out to walk in the park with Miss Linda, accompanying her to church tonight, and we've ordered a nice dinner from a local grocery/deli for tomorrow. During my time off, I'll have a couple of outstanding things taken care of on the Buick, and we'll drive out to the Gulf Coast; we haven't been there since before Katrina.
Stay happy and healthy, all.
