Oh the HORRORS!! You just can't imagine the heebie-jeebies I got this morning when I found out that Sarah Palin had spent the night in my pool! AAAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHH!!! Quick, where's the disinfectant? Gotta get extra chlorine in the filters! Better drain it to make sure!
Ok, calm down...
Of course I had to go inside and grab the camera; some things just have to be documented! Here we go: Sarah Palin swimming around in my pool!
Hmmmmmm, good thing the undead don't need to breathe, eh?
Maybe she was chasing this:
I tell ya, it's a darned good thing I skim the pool before having a swim in the mornin', you betcha!
She then transformed into one of her more familiar guises that I see down here in the backyard. She did, however, at least have the decency(!) to be embarrassed about the whole episode:
Hmmmmm, some quote about crocodile tears comes to mind...
Or maybe there was a reporter nearby?
It's bloody well COLD down here today! This morning when I got up to feed the birds (lousy buggers, waking me up at 5:00 am on a Saturday) and to let the panther out for his dawn patrol, I noticed that it was COLD!
How cold was it, dave?
How does 19 degrees sound? Yep, COLD is how it sounds! Even now in the middle of the day it's only up to 29 in the shade. The pool is hanging out at an arctic-like 24. Even the direct sun has only warmed the pool patio (where the frozen tomato(e) plants are) up to 48.
How are folks even supposed to live in these conditions?
It's a good thing them weather prognisticator blokettes are sayin' it's gonna warm up this arvo to 33 in the shade. That way the ice will melt off'n that thar pool!
And look at this! One of the poor sunflowers froze and shriveled up while opening:
Oh, wait a sec. Hang about...
Ha, ha, SILLY me! Had the darned thermostatomometers set for celsius! Oops.
Here, this'll help y'all out: F=((9/5)*C)+32
