I am more tired this morning than any recent morning I can remember. Dawn and I were invited to a Chinese New Year celebration for the year of the dragon. We met up with our group and took a party bus to the restaurant. It was a lot of fun but lasted a few hours longer than what we thought, so I got about ninety minutes of sleep last night. I luckily was able to use "Gong Xi Fa Cai" which is how you say Happy New Year...a co-worker taught me that and figured I better learn how to properly pronounce it. The two people in the photo are friends of our group and family with the head chef at the restaurant. The big accomplishment of the night...I only used chopsticks.
Weather looks pretty quiet today. Increasing clouds with a high around 37. Rain showers arrive tonight and will last through the day tomorrow. Tomorrow morning we will drop near freezing so there is a chance for a few icy spurts. Temperatures will warm up through the day tomorrow so if there is any wintry mix it will melt quickly with the falling rain. After tomorrow we look to be pretty dry for the most part. Highs will bounce around in the low 40's and 30's heading through the weekend and next week, but dipping briefly on Sunday as a cold front blasts through with a high of 28. We could see a few flurries Sunday as the cold front swings through, but only a very slight chance. Back to the news...and back to my coffee. Have a good one!
