It is 2:30 in the afternoon. We may not hit the "revised" predicted high of 28. (Revised down from 31).
Got through the night OK. Nothing frozen inside. We now have a new record of surviving 10 degrees. Tonight it will be a balmy 16. Makes ya' want to go out and plant palm tress doesn't it.
I also survived a trip to the doctor's (orthopedic) office first thing this AM. I was worried that Hope may not want to start. But I got there in the blustery weather and felt very sorry for the other ortho patients hobbling in with me (actually they hobbled a lot worse than me). Yes, I was not the worse patient the doctor had ever seen. They took some really neat x-rays of my knees including an "over the shoulder shot" that gave the doctor a really good look of my patella (knee cap). For now the doctor said I could get some relief from cortisone shots. So he needled both my knees and I was off; call him in the future if I have more trouble and he will consider another treatment including possible knee replacements. Who knows, maybe they will come up with a new miracle cure for arthritis on the knee.
So that's the update. Will go to work on travel plans next after we get through the "arctic blast".
