The Big Sleet

This was the extent of our winter precipitation here – a little sleet at our house.  However, several of our friends around town reported snow.  It was a very exciting morning and afternoon for young people (and adults) here.  Facebook was full of snow and sleet sightings! 🙂

This is the only time I have experience sleet in Florida.  It was very interesting to me.  We do have our fair share of hail in the summers, though, and that is usually much bigger than the sleet that we saw on Saturday.

It is still very cold here, but I have conquered the clothing situation:  I am wearing trouser socks and long pjs under my outer clothing.  Also two pairs of sock:  one pair of mine and one pair of Doug's!  I look like I've gained all of those pounds back that I've lost since April, but that doesn't really matter to me as long as I am warm!

Oh, and I think one reason I have been so cold is that I was getting sick again:  sore throat, congested sinuses, low grade temp, etc.  I am, however, continuing with my supplements and hoping to see the end of this business before long.  Be gone, thou foul lurgy!!!  (Thanks to Tia for the really great word!  It's one we don't hear over here in the States, but I think it's a great example of onomatopoeia!!!)

I pray your week is off to a good start.

  1. I’m glad you like the word! I had another thought on your coldness – if you’ve lost a lot of weight this year then perhaps you have less fat now to protect you against the cold? In which case feeling the cold is actually a good sign (sort of!).


  2. you are tooooo kind, Tia! 🙂 I’ve only lost around 30 pounds, so not too big a change. Some of the cold is due to fibromyalgia…it affects my circulation. BUT I finally have it conquered, I think. Layers are my friend!!!
