This morning, a frozen too-blue sky and a dusting of new snow. Currently, it's 28˚F, with a windchill of 16˚F, the wind 15 mph from the northwest, gusting to 28 mph.

Yesterday, I wrote 1,276 words, and I found THE END of "As Water Is In Water," the first story of 2018. It will be featured in Sirenia Digest No. 144. Which is what I have to do today, put the issue together and get it out to subscribers, as soon as I've proofread the story and dealt with the line edits.

I think I slept too much last night. I've been doing good to get five hours, and last night I got more than seven. And now I'm groggy. I think maybe I've gotten too old to sleep that much.

I've recently gone from random scatterings of sleep to about four hours a day, regularly. In a way it's such an odd change I almost don't know how to deal with it. (Just came home from finally seeing The Last Jedi, and while I spent the first dozen-ish scenes compelled to tell Greg to slap me silly if I ever say we're going to see a Star Wars movie again, I found myself deeply touched by two or three things by the end of the film.)

Amusing thing of note in our home state, the possum Sand Mountain Sam in Albertville predicted an early spring. It is a big event in Albertville, AL each year, a new possum caught in the wild and then let go when he prediction duties are done. A possum chosen over a ground hog as possums are a more native animal, according to the radio station that began this and continues the tradition. The long list of Sam's have only been wrong once, in 1993 the first year the event happened. I don't know how far Sam's prediction goes as far as miles but hope it is true for us in the TN valley. If Spring is to come early on the mountain, I would think being at a lower altitude would mean early for us too.
