We're having cold north winds and a little snow, enough to barely cover the ground. About a month ago we had a slight snow covering, and here's what the traffic cameras showed, over on the Kansas side. Cliff's mom always told us you can't trust Kansas drivers (but she substituted another word for "drivers").
I've already heard of one school closing. I suppose if people are going to have this much trouble on a slight covering of snow, we'd better do what we can to keep the children safe.
I've been enjoying "U is for Undertow" by Sue Grafton. It's been awhile since I've read one of these books, and I am enjoying it thoroughly. I read until the words run together in a blur, then I make the print larger on my Nook and keep on reading. In the evening I read until I begin dozing off in the middle of the action. Not that the story line bores me, I just can't stay awake, reading in the evening.
Sue Grafton has almost gone all the way through the alphabet with the Kinsey Millhone mysteries; "V is for Vengeance" is already on sale. I wonder if she will start over with the letter "A" when she gets to "Z".
Here's one problem I have with checking out e-books from the library: You can't just immediately check out the books you want; you usually have to place a hold on them and wait until you get an email saying they're ready. So I put a hold on two or three, hoping that will keep me in a steady supply of reading material. Sometimes I end up with three books at once, and only two weeks to read them. It's no big deal, I suppose, since it isn't costing me a cent. I can always return one without reading it, and check it out later. That way somebody else on the waiting list can have at it. I should probably just put a hold on one at a time and give myself a break between books. The trouble with that is that lately there is NOTHING new on television worth watching, and as long as I have something to read, that takes the place of TV.
If these are the biggest problems I ever have, I had better count my blessings, don't you think?
Oh, I'm sure most of you have noticed my goofy header picture. David has been at it again, thanks to another KC blogger's encouragement. I'll leave this one up one more day and then put the normal picture back... that is, if the space aliens don't carry me away first.
