Not winning....have a head cold that's migrating to my chest. Coughing so much my ribs hurt.

Ugh. I hate when I feel like that. That's why I've become something of a germophobe. I'm using a lot of hand sanitizer at work and public places.

Feel better soon.

Just ordinary soap and hard water here.

That's what I do at home, but in a school with 3,000 teenagers or in a gas station bathroom, who knows what is on the faucets? I don't even tough the paper towel dispenser lever.

Some super markets here have faucets that have no hand controls at all, just wave ones hands, add soap, rinse, works like magic.

Even with touch less potties, hands free faucets and air blade hand dryers, you still have to open the door.

The local Stater Bros market uses paper towels to dry hands with, use one to open the door, problem solved.

Sheesh.
Two days before the official start of Spring, and we are getting a couple of inches of snow, blowing winds and drifting, and the high temp to welcome in the Spring season is projected to be 22f with a low of 7f.
Average temps here for Wednesday are 43f with a low of 25f.

And the forecast is to not even reach average temps until maybe the 5th of April.

Some start to Spring this is turning out to be.

Chilly here this morning too. Thick freezing fog, can't see the end of my driveway right now. Everything is encased in ice. Looks fantastic, but not good for the commute. Haven't seen another car go past yet, so guess it is as bad as it looks right now!

By Friday we are expecting South Westerlies and torrential rain. That's more like UK weather!

Rain forecast here Tuesday night and Wednesday. Temps in the low 60s. Was 80 over the weekend. Not ready for summer temps yet. Even so, I'm winning.....

Doesn't look like we'll see 60 here in Wisconsin for weeks yet, the way things are going.
Far cry from last year.

And, actually, the cherry growers up north of here are taking joy in this. The temps were so high this time last year that the cherry trees blossomed way too early, and then a seasonal freeze killed most of the crop off.

So, it's not bad for everybody. The rest of us yearning for spring shall just have to bide our time.

Those are nice, but not nearly common enough.

Even with touch less potties, hands free faucets and air blade hand dryers, you still have to open the door.

At Chicago Union Station, there are no doors, just winding entrances so you can't see in. Again, not very common.

The local Stater Bros market uses paper towels to dry hands with, use one to open the door, problem solved.

Then we're back to touching the lever, unless that's automatic too.

I better quit posting and get my clothes, then take a shower, or I'll be late for work and that's not winning.
