Snap, Crackle and POP

NC usually treats us pretty well over the Winter months.  50's for highs and 30's for lows.

Doesn't suck.

There are always a few weeks that zippity-doo-da down to the teens and we are having a visit of super cold (for us) weather here this weekend.

What that gives us is a LOT of static electricity, crocodile skin and dry coughs from lack of moisture in the air.

Scooter is thrilled with the "shock" factor as he scuffs along the carpeting and then sticks his nose on the metal legs of our coffee table.  

SM and I fare less well as we inadvertently ZAP each other in passing.

I have a pot of water on to boil to get some steam in the air but it's not helping much.

Everyone at work is complaining.  I told a patient yesterday that I now know why us old farts head for Florida or Arizona over the winter.  

My blood is thin Ya'll...

  1. I hear ya. Lately I can't touch anything (including my husband's lips to give him a smooch) without getting a good zinger. He's taken to holding his hands up in front of his face when he sees me nearing him. Couple of days ago, I opened the door to let our granddog out and his tail brushed my leg as he went past, I heard a loud snap and I could swear I saw sparks fly. He, of course, immediately tucked his tail between his legs and looked back at me like, "What did ya do that for??!)
