All the news that matters -- and doesn't

I spent most of the day huddled in a blanket on a recliner next to a vaporizer. I drank half-caff coffee, cranberry-apple tea, and eventually diet Pepsi. My goals were to rehydrate and rest. I achieved both while watching alternately CNN and The Weather Channel.
In my neck of the woods, the high tomorrow might hit 0. Maybe. That's without wind chill.
In Florida, buildings constructed to withstand hurricane force winds have been levelled by tornados.
But from a newspaper in Biloxi, Mississippi, there came a ray of sunshine. As far as hard news, it wasn't. But for an average Midwesterner, especially those too far North to cheer for Da Bears, the news put a smile on many a weary, cold face.

Brett Favre is coming back.

I feel for you Daisy. It's cold out there. We all got bundled up this morning to go to Denny's... and the bank said it was 15 degrees below zero. Oh well. Hope you feel better soon. Wish I could sit down and have a cup of tea with you.
