A Big Change

Boy did the weather change the past couple days.  Friday's weather wasn't bad with a high near 60 degrees, then a low pressure front pushed in from the north.  Saturday and Sunday was a bit different from last week.  High winds, a little rain, and cold temps had arrived and I was bit crabby about [...]
