Gosh, I hope everyone is okay.

The only scary thing going here is the ice. The path up to the barn is almost down to bare earth, finally. I bought sand to put on the ice. More snow tonight. 42F out now.

foglover, get those choppers done, please! I was in Scotia yesterday for my niece''s birthday, we went to Rollerama!

Crazy weather. I hope everyone is okay today . . . and that things settle down. The mudslide was so upsetting to think about. All we can do is pray for the people affected. I can't imagine how horrible this has been for that entire community.

We are having steady winds - 30 or so mph; last night, up to 70-some miles per hour. Praying our electricity stays on.

Snow was very pretty but it is blowing away. Feels much colder than 36 F out there. Tomorrow, the forecast is for 63 F here!!! How nutty is that!!!

Have to head down the mountain this week and take care of business in Charlotte, where it will be typical April weather - warm and sunny. Maybe I can put the winter clothes away . . .

Rain and more rain...not sure what is forecast. Noticed that my basement got wet. Not much to do about it except wait it out.

Had to google Rollerama. Established in 1957. I wonder how many times I've driven past and never noticed. Haven't been involved with any children for many years so I'm gonna use that as my excuse.

The dentist. I need to visit the wizard and get some courage.

Modern dentistry is not painful except very briefly when getting the local injection(s). Why do you need courage? I have never felt the need for courage. Going to the dentist is analogous to going to any other appointment - CPA, dropping off a car to have it worked on, meeting in connection with work, etc.

Ah no it isn't. I'd rather go through childbirth without painkillers again than get any serious work done on my teeth. Fortunately I take care of them with a Hydrofloss.

off to google Hydrofloss.

Going to the dentist is mentally painful. You go in for a checkup and cleaning and it breaks the bank. Then they tell you that you need a crown. I'm going to be starting up with a new dentist next month because when I moved three years ago I had to switch to my dentist's satellite office. I got stuck with this woman who is a butcher and the crown she put on in July still hurts. I've been back five times.

That's what's painful about the dentist. The cost and the aggravation. Some of us in this forum remember dentistry when they didn't use novacaine--yiiiikes. My dentist didn't believe in it for kids, thought they would learn their lesson. Yeah, we were traumatized for life!

I don't want to bore anyone with my history with dentists, but I did grow up in a state that had, at the time, the worst dental care in the nation. And I had virtually none because we were poor.

But all that aside, I don't care to have sharp objects in my mouth. Call me crazy.
When I drop my car off, the mechanic doesn't stick high-speed drills in my mouth.
If I had a CPA, he might possibly upset me, but I would have no fear of being choked.

I'm not a weenie and I have had lots of ferocious pain in my life, but there is just something about sitting there allowing someone to do those things to me that just doesn't seem right.

So much for the "weatherman/lady." We were supposed to have a warm week (40s and 50s). Woke at 6:00 a.m. to freezing rain clicking against the windows. Still going strong at 7:38 and the bare ground (no snow) is covered with white ice. I think we're heading for an ice age, not "warming."
