This week the weather ran the gamut, showing us a true New England January week. We started the week with a foot and a half of snow that soon became sheets of ice as the temperatures warmed a bit and everything started melting.

I eventually met – and married – my Navy husband and spent a few years in Pensacola, Florida, then we moved to Virginia where he retired from the Navy base in Norfolk.
