A pretty sunrise this morning but soon a fog settled in. I heard thunder - strange for winter - and then a hard rain started. Within the hour it switched over to slushy snow. Russ & Donna are away for the day. Went to their house tonight to give Chinook a romp w/ Indy while I filled up the outside furnace w/ wood. Then I put Chinook in the house for the night and drove home. Indy and I stayed outside for awhile after I put the car away. A warm wind was blowing out of the south. The sky was full of stars. As Mark Twain said (to paraphrase) - "If you don't like the weather now, just wait a few minutes."
