Goodbye Christmas tree. :(

The strange weather continues in early 2018. Above 0 a few days then back down around -15, sometimes in the same day. There has also been freezing rain and more snow.

Saddened to hear of the passing of another 90s era singer. R.I.P. Dolores O’Riordan (Cranberries). She was only (gasp!) 46.

Update…
FYI. All Christmas trees were taken down by January 17th. 😐

Sad Update…
Ugh. A friend from my Brock Press days recently had heart surgery. Sadly it didn’t take and he has passed away. R.I.P. mighty Q. 🙁
