The sleet came down in buckets from 4 a.m. for a few hours, and then snow fell. Our dog Beatrice proved irrepressible, as the white landscape meant that she could more easily see the rabbits that visit our backyard. I pulled her in for a while, when she came very near to catching one, to give the bunny a chance to escape.
The Jimmy John's sandwich place near me closed for the day. Boston Market was open, with one brave soul manning the service desk.
Tonight we are having a 'hard freeze'--down to 10 degrees. Already it is about 15.
I'm reading a book called "Second Chances", about Petfinders, and the good work of getting unwanted pets adopted.
