Wet Forecast/Economy Looked Good Here/Solar Eclipse

A wet Monday on the way for much of the country. There will be snow/ice from New York City to Oklahoma city and westward to Reno. Look out for icey roads in Oklahoma. There will be some rain in Corpus Christi northward to Dallas and westward to Los Angeles. Bitterly cold across the northern plains and northern New England with subzero to near zero highs.

Houston will be on the drippy side, at least for the first half of the week. It will be cloudy but warmer with morning lows near 50 and highs in the 60s. Slightly warmer Tuesday and then another cold front brings chilly weather for Wednesday and Thursday.

Let's do wet or mojado, pronounced mow-ha-DOUGH. Much of this week will be mojado. Please note that rainy is lluvioso, pronounce you-vee-oh-SEW.

Our award winning educational DVD, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco, Volume 1 introduces youngsters to terms that make up their world. For example, there are words for family members, parts of the home, food and drink and play.

Gordy and I took Sarah to ChuckECheese Saturday. I have never seen it so busy! Some of the machines were running out of tickets...the staff was working very hard trying to keep up. Now, of course, you would expect it to be busy on a Saturday. But I was thinking--gosh, this does not look like a time of economic distress. One nice thing about ChuckECheese is that you don't have to order food. But just looking around, it looked like everyone was eating and drinking. Kind of gives me hope! Also, if you get a kid's cup and bring it can get it filled for free.

There will be a solar eclipse over the Indian Ocean on Monday. The cool thing is that it will be a kind called annular--the moon won't completely block out the sun but will fit just inside the sun's circumference leaving a ring of sunlight on the edges. This has to do with the position of the moon relative to the earth and sun. Well, guess we won't see it, but at least we can comfort ourselves by knowing that skies will be cloudy here anyway.

Have a great week and stay dry!
