Right now the temperature stands at 6 degrees. That is 16 degrees warmer than it was yesterday at this time. I walked to the laundry room without a coat this morning. The countdown till Spring stands at 36 days. The temp tomorrow is predicted to reach 30 degrees and one day next week it is to hit 40. It will be flooding here if it warms up. If it will get rid of the snow I am all for it.
Other than laundry I am planning to tidy my house a bit. Not sure what I will cook today. I still haven’t cleaned the bottom shelf of the freezer. Maybe I will do that too and see what I have in there.
And now for the local news, A major water main break in Peoria has caused a lot of problems for the city as it affected quite a large area leaving them with no water and issuing a boil order for other parts of the city, Here in Pekin the hospital laid off several employees and cut the hours to 30 for a good number of other employees to get out of paying them benefits. The governor’s race for this coming November has heated up nicely and there is a lot of political poopiedoop flying around. We have had so many days this winter where the kids have been out of school because of the weather that classes will be held here until well into June. I bet the kids are not liking that one bit. And that is the local news for today. Tune in next week for an update.
