You have to love winter weather in the Midwest, actually, I might now qualify for the Southeast, but it's borderline.
In the past two weeks, it's been in the mid--60's and down to the mid-teens. Add in rain, sleet, ice, snow and light breezes in the 30-35 mile per hour range. Variations that happen within a 48 hour period. A weather roller coaster, repeat each week until dizzy. You get the idea, perfect weather to get sick as a dog.
I've spent the time either painting, welding, cutting firewood or rewriting the novel. Very little time left for the blogosphere.
When it's too cold, too hot or too wet to work outside, then I get a chance to catch up on my blogs.
Which at this rate means that I'm only a couple of years behind on blog posts.
