Our fridge packed it in yesterday. Went out this morning to buy a new one, but it can't be delivered until Wednesday.

It's amazing how dependent we are on such appliances.

Going out in a half hour for a job interview at a liquidation type store as a stocking clerk, etc.

We will see...

@edgarblythe,
In olden days a glimpse of stocking was looked on as something shocking now heaven knows anything goes. Razz

@edgarblythe,
If he does, it will be all your fault for suggesting he eat all the ice cream. He'll be sitting on the throne for hours. Wink

How is everyone in this rough weather?

I've never seen it this windy here in the two years I've been here. The air is so dusty, it feels like I am inside a powder puff. If this is what is headed eastward, you folks better really get prepared for some damaging winds.

@Butrflynet,
We are in a severe drought. It gets a bit windy, but that's the extent of it.

@edgarblythe,
Wow, it's hard to image a severe drought when I've got ducks swimming in the standing water in my yard.

@JPB,
The drought is actually the worst since they started keeping records.

I've taken to watering the biggest trees in my yard, because I don't want them falling on top of me.

@edgarblythe,
And the Mississippi River valley is flooding. Strange times. A friend told me that his train from Chicago to New Orleans (Amtrak - The City of New Orleans) is canceled for tomorrow and the rest of the week due to flooding in southern IL/KY/MS.

@edgarblythe,
Drought here in ABQ too. The last time we saw anything that looked like rain was back in November when we got an inch of snow.

Anyone heard from Eva, Mystery Man, Rockhead and all the other folks who live in the storm track?

The lake we walk around each day gets smaller by the minute. Only a week or two of sustained raining will begin to restore it.

@edgarblythe,
Sounds like the drought in the Carolinas a few years back. Fortunately, these things seem to be temporary.

@Butrflynet,
Thanks to your warning thread, I sheltered my lone tomato, poor thing.
This wasn't all news to me, but I don't like it in any case. Ms grumps in Albuquerque sees blazing immolating summer and a bit of pleasant time and then winter, which I'm ok with except for heating bills, and then spring, which brings ridiculous wind at just the time I'd like to be in the garden. Truth is, there is some respite between winds.

Meantime, today I went to Brooks, the grocery store about twenty (who knows?) blocks away - I'm good on estimating feet but not driving on curves re milage.. I never ask or agree to help to take my cart to my car as it's one facet of my exercise, but this time it was dramatic. Woman not blown over. I got to the car and was unloading my one bag, and a store guy showed up. First, I assume stores need to both protect their baskets and not have them flying into the streets.. but at the time the store guy showed up, I was glad. He seemed glad to talk for a minute too.

I keep hoping I'll see duck babies someday. We have a mated pair of ducks that spend a few weeks here every spring. I've never seen any ducklings though.

@ossobuco,
You are exactly why I post them when they get bad enough to be damaging. I never know if you're aware of them or not since I know you don't have a TV and there are none or very few local news radio stations around here.

Glad your tomato plant got tucked away safely. I planted mine in the ground about 4 days ago and am hoping they will still have some leaves left on them when this wind goes away.
