The Weather hasn't been able to decide to be snowy and cold or rainy and warm. Yesterday morning we woke up to five inches of snow (which is enough to debilitate the island - knock trees down and close the schools). By late morning the temperatures were in the mid forties with a soft rain. Last night it rained hard and stayed warm. Some of us braved the cold outside and others of us chose to stay inside - warm by the fire.
Okay, at the risk of sounding defensive, I have to say that we are not normally the type of family that has a poodle. A poodle in a coat - on a wool afghan - by the fire. We are the type of family to have big, hairy, dirty dogs. I adopted JJ (aka Jesse James) from the Humane Society mostly because he was sitting in a cage - shaking. He's old and he gets cold. He can't help it.
