Every school district in the area has a 2 hour delay. Except for ours. Rain changed to snow just recently. Roads are covered. Blustery.

The real cold starts later this afternoon. We could be below 0 from tonight till Wednesday morning. Coldest weather since 1994 when it went to 20 below.

I don't know about how you were brought up, but at my house you had to keep an eye on those things.

You never knew where your next meal was coming from.

Aureole -- I've seen one or two of those.

It took about a half hour for the aureole to dissipate after a 4-hour 4 hour practice in a chlorinated pool. Don’t miss that!

Technically, you are correct, however, definition 2, clearly states, a ring of light, or color...

So..I would say while the breast obviously deserves it's own special word, your word is malleable enuff to fit the bill;-)

Everything is closed today — including our own business. Although I can keep my office warm (I’ll go in later to handle mail) there is no way that I can keep the manufacturing part of the plant warm enough for our employees — plus I have one who walks to work.

We have actual temps of -16 and wind chill (real feel) of -46 this morning. Besides, we are all in a funk over Green Bay’s loss yesterday.

“Why is breast milk superior to cow’s milk or formula?”

1. It’s always fresh.
2. The cats can’t get at it.
3. And it comes in such a cute little container.

I understand about the GB loss - we were doing everything in our power to make them win! You know, the “lean” to help them catch the ball - the chants, cheers, even closing my eyes a couple of times because I couldn’t bear to watch that play..... guess you can blame it on us, we didn’t do enough!

thanks for subbing, soother. xsbaby is home with only two of the four wisdom teeth out. The dentist said that despite the twilight sedation, she was fighting him, and he figured it was better to just stop after the top two and refer her out to an oral surgeon for the bottoms which were more complicated. He said she didn’t like the pressure but there was nothing that could be done for that. She of course is claiming that she felt pain and wasn’t really numbed. Would not be xsbaby unless there was drama involved as she is a drama queen. Was able to get the antibiotics and vicodan in liquid form for her since she can’t swallow pills.
She’s disgusted that it is not totally over with, but he said there’s no rush and that we could wait 6 mo or a year to do the rest.

A regular dentist took out wisdom teeth? That is usually the oral surgeon forte.

well not if they are not impacted. xsboy had 2 taken out by the pediatric dentist and the impacted ones by the oral surgeon. I guess her’s while not impacted on the bottom, were more difficult from the top and since she wasn’t docile, he didn’t want to mess with it and i don’t blame them.

the oral surgeon that took out xsboy and xsteen’s was NOT in our insurance network and it cost literally THOUSANDS. I had to prepay this, since they block the time out, and it was $900 something. I guess i will get some of that back since he didn’t do all 4. The dentist promised to sit down and look at our insurance and refer out to someone who participates. He was very sympathetic and said it is ridic what oral surgeons charge because the sedation is not difficult and procedure only takes 45 minutes.

We’ve still got 24 degrees now, but it’s supposed to drop this afternoon.

Speaking of which, this afternoon ends the reign of the Boy Mayor. You’d think being mayor of a big city at age 26 could turn into something positive. Maybe becoming a governor or senator.

Instead, divorced and hoping to keep the FBI at bay. So sad.

But his sedation was not effective this time, if she was having pain. It's the bread and butter of oral surgery, when half the waiting room is made up of teens. I'm glad she is halfway done.
It's still only 7 here with windchills in double digits. I do not like winter.

yes, i was wary of the pills being effective enough, especially since she had to have them crushed. knocking her completely out will be better.
xshub and i were in NYC this weekend, he had to give a speech and asked me to come, so we went to a show etc. It was plenty cold, but i was dressed like the Michelin man in layers and it wasn’t terribly bad. Would not want to be there tomorrow. The bigger hassle was the snow on the streets and having to slop and slide around in that.

LOL, listening to Rush during lunchtime here, some of the faithful actually may believe that Global Warming (concentrated in the U.S. of course) is “attracting” the so-called polar vortex down to us. I’d say unbelievable, but not really given the source…

It was 21 this morning, and is only 33 now-but that is balmy compared to where you are. It was cold like this in the early 80’s, and snowed over a foot twice in January, but the global warming/climate change loons don’t understand that such things follow a cycle dictated by solar distance, our orbit-which is not perfectly circular, etc-we’ve seen this before and will again...

The aureole of vapor rising
From every pond and river
Shows that the air is frigid
And makes us want to shiver

To the idiots stuck in the ice
Who found the cold so alarming-
Hey, it is winter, you lunatics,
This is not from global warming...

It seems that every few decades
We are reminded of the reason
Why June is not like January,
And there isn’t just one season...

My sympathies to your baby-I went through the wisdom teeth drill-pun intended-with the cub, as well as doing it myself. That was when it was discovered that just a bit of ordinary drugs could put my lights out forever, so I’ve been totally drug free since.
