Today I had to go into Roanoke and get new tires put on my little mini van. I love this old Dr. Pepper sign and the Firestone store was right across the street. The weather was so cold that I just wimped out and snapped the photo from inside the lobby while waiting for my tires to be put on. The numbers 10, 2 and 4 on the sign supposedly respresent the time of day that your body needs that extra little boost of energy and of course they think Dr. Pepper would be the perfect choice!
So now, back to the cold. The US is having a total cold snap and here's our forecast for today and tomorrow:
Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 7. Wind chill values as low as -3. Northwest wind around 11 mph.
Friday: Sunny, with a high near 17. Wind chill values as low as -9. West wind between 10 and 13 mph.
Friday Night: Clear, with a low around -1. Calm wind.
Schools here in Botetourt County have been delayed for 2 hours in the morning due to the cold! Wow, never had that happen before :)
Also, on Friday is Lee-Jackson Day . A state holiday here in Virginia. I never knew about this holiday till I noticed a sign on the library that they will be closed in observance!
