Freeze Warning?

Global warming? Not so in Georgia. The National Weather Service has issued a frost advisory for central and northern Georgia from 1am to 9am tomorrow. I repeat, FROST! Brrrrrr! The average low this time of year is 54 degrees. So what's up with the plunging temps? With the completion of the pool house, and the delivery of new outdoor furniture this coming Saturday from Georgia Backyard, we're ready for the pool season to begin. Okay. Pool season doesn't officially begin until Memorial Day. But we're ready! Woo-hoo! Click here to view a slide show of the finished pool house.

Afterthought: As I overheard Pete describe the pool house interior to a friend, he compared it to a "Caribbean brothel". Now you know I couldn't leave well enough alone... I had to ask how he would know what a Caribbean brothel looks like. Flashing me his best Clintonesque smile, he said in a syrupy sweet voice (sweet enough to give me a cavity), "I wouldn't know, my dear, I can only imagine what one must look like". Smooth, Doughboy...real smooth. But, I'm watching you...

Love, love, love it. It makes want to go anywhere there is sun, sand and water. You are right about the weather. What gives? I just hope it does not burn all the buds and blooms. It can leave ugly brown edges and spots on beautiful flowers. Maybe it will not be cold enough long enough.

You just HAD to buy more pillows. Just once I'd like to be able to sit on a sofa or chair in our house without having to move half a dozen pillows. I think we have an attic full of pillows....

It's an illness.
Seek help.

Some women buy shoes or jewelry. I buy pillows. What's it going to be, Doughboy? Do you like the pillows? Or do I drive to the nearest jewelry store??

Jewelry for me! Hopefully, we'll warm up here soon. You have a very lovely pool house and you should be proud.

Clintonesque smile...I can picture this so perfectly. Very good description!!
Blame the cold weather on me! If we were home, you would not only be in your beautiful pool and pool house, but you would be complaining that is was so dang hot so fast! Really, though, I agree with you...what in the world is going on with the cold weather for Atlanta?
