Welcome to my Thursday 👓
Nice warm hug....
Brew with breakfast.

Those dark clouds kept coming overhead.
Plus it was getting colder.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Then we had bits of snow appear while the sun was shining!
Everyone was looking in the hole...
Someone said,"Looks like someone is having a water meter fitted!"
I was glad I finished in one piece as the temperatures were dropping.
Home time for me.
