    It was like six degrees here last night, and our furnace went out. Our HVAC contractor at first said they couldn't get anybody out till Tuesday, but when I pressed a little, they set somebody for tomorrow morning. Hoping they're able to fix it then. But it's been a long cold day in Casa Wreathalist, bundled up in bed with nothing but space heaters running. Currently 20 degrees outside.

    ETA: Heroic HVAC guy arrived this morning and got our furnace running again. Merry Christmas!

    Decent out. Still cold, but at least it's not bitterly cold.

    1C9383B8-09BE-44A8-B94D-24BE848F4229.jpeg Rainy, even for my corner of the Pacific Northwest. The family beach cabin got flooded, as did my dad’s SUV. We had something of a perfect storm scenario, as we had torrential rain after snow and an ice storm, high wind and king tides. So this is how the holiday season ends for the family.

    Yikes. That sucks.

    Weather has gotten a bit better, so I did my best to try to clear out some of the meeting snow and ice.

    Thanks. It’s just insane, and I’m glad the family home is on a hill.

    We had quite a bit of rain today, it rained pretty much all day from before I woke up all the way through to the early afternoon.

    Had a lot of rain, so my property is drenched snow and ice. Hopefully we warm enough to melt some off, but it's a sloggy mess, with water over the roads, pot holes the size of cars, and all kinds of problems from this.

    You're welcome. Ah.

    The snows gone now. Had a nice little stretch of decent weather. Not cold out! :) So I cleaned out the yard a bit of any sticks and branches from the recent storm.

    It rained some more last night, but I slept through it. A woman I follow on IG who lives on a ranch across town, posted a video of it pouring rain at 11:00PM.

    High 60s today and it rained all night and filled up the ditches. Rained off and on today, too.

    It's been cloudy all day and the last time I checked the temp was when I was getting ready for my bike ride and it 53º out, probably didn't get much warmer than that.

    It's been raining all day here, too. But I don't really mind it... a few degrees colder, and this all could have been snow. I'll take the rain over that any day!
