    Has ice on the windshield this morning that took the defroster ten minutes to melt off. Shitballs! It's only going to get up to about forty five today and then right back down to 32 tonight. My porch cat Freeloader is chilling out with the little heater I gave him in front of the little pillow fort I built for him. He seems smart enough to hang out mostly in there, so I think he'll be OK'. He's a big ol' half Siamese feral that only I am able to play with and handle, since I am the "giver of the food and treats". He even does a couple of tricks for me if I feed his pieces of lunch meat. The neighbor on the other hand, left his poor dog on the fucking chain out in the cold, so I took an old comforter over and bunched it up for him as best I could. He was all balled up in it when I pulled out this morning. The guy can be a real dick sometimes. Wouldn't even let the dog sleep on the porch.

    Thank you George for your astute insight...

    Ice pellets. They feel like pellets. I blame the southern states for this one!

    I moved from north Atlanta metro, where I lived for most of my life, to the Florida Panhandle about 10 years ago. This year is the closest thing to a winter that I've seen since I've been here. Usually it's more like an early to mid spring, the best weather we have all year long.
