Today is Brian's first day back at drill since returning from Kosovo in September 2012. Yes, it's been over a year, because of his shoulder surgery last January, and then the accident in June last year that gave him 2 surgeries on his elbow. I can't even imagine what he goes through with that, other than what he shares with me, and he doesn't always share everything when it comes to his aches and pains and "feel bads". I just know - he has a harder time with the arm than I think he's willing to admit to us.
We are having rain, a small amount of thunder, and most of the northern half of the state has a tornado watch in effect until some time later this afternoon.
Here's a picture of the visibility from last night - foggy and a very heavy misty rain:
We were forecast this past Sunday night with an 80% chance of snow. This is what I woke up to Monday morning:
That was our snow - looks more like sea salt - and it wasn't ice pellets, it was actually snow that had clumped together like little pellets. I didn't take a photo of the snow on my car, but it kinda looked like tiny Styrofoam ball pellets. It snowed some on my way to work, at least until I got to Douglasville, and it snowed on and off at work but of course nothing stuck.
We got a freebie day at work on Tuesday - the temps dropped down to around 5 degrees, with a wind chill of 13 below zero, so the boss man decided he didn't want the employees out in the cold. I didn't find it to feel as cold as it should have, but then again every time I went out I had my heavy coat, gloves, and a hat on.
Here's Dominion, waiting on us to come to bed one of those cold nights:
After graduating from USC in 1991, our vehicles are finally adorned with front license plates to support our team!
