Hale and Hearty in Winnemuca!

It was 28 degrees in Sac this morning!!! What is up with that??? My friend we were staying with accused us of bringing Utah to California. It almost never freezes that low in Sacramento and generally it is a disaster. People have exposed pipes everywhere and are just not prepared for very low temps.
Bald Man didn't get finished last night, so we got a late start out of Sacramento today. We stopped when Little Man started to lose his mind. I figured I was not up to getting into Utah really late, (early in the AM) not getting enough sleep, but still needing to get up with Little Man in the morning, sleep deprived and grumpy. I would much rather get a good night's sleep tonight, get up early, drive the rest of the way home, and arrive rested and not as grumpy. That way we can get stuff put away before Pygmy Child and Brown Boy arrive. It has been more than a year since I have seen my oldest child and her hubby, I can hardly wait!
We had the carpet cleaned while we were away, so that one is checked off my list, thank goodness. Thought I would drop you a line from the not so small town of Winnemuca. They have a Walmart here now, so they are moving up in the world. They also have free wireless where we are staying, so I am all kinds of happy. I might get caught up on some blog reading tonight, who knows?

I can't put my finger on why I recognize the name Winnemuca.
But I can understand the cold! I live in Vegas, and it snowed here! Way too crazy.

You were in Sac?!?! Arg. I wish I had known. I'm just getting caught up after my dead dial-up issues. Well, shoot me an email if you come this way again.

It was 28 degrees again this morning. I just put out strawberries and roses too! Had to cover them up with a blankey. That just feels wrong in CA.
