cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Baby, it's cold outside ... (posted by Lani)

We're moved, safely in Colorado and trying to get unpacked. The whole moving thing was an adventure, let me tell you. YOU try driving 30 hours with a dog, 3 cats and a bird in the car sometime, if you don't believe me. Then there was the whole "moving van stuck in the snowdrifts in the driveway" debacle ... but hey. The furniture got into the house, the moving van got out of the driveway, and we're slowly but surely settling in.

We currently have a phone but no internet access; dsl? HA. Cable? HA HA. With luck we'll have some form of wireless this week, with less luck we'll have a lesser form of wireless next week, if we have no luck at all we'll be getting a satellite system installed at some point thereafter. In the meantime I'm logging on about 3 times a week from a coffee shop, when I come down to the flats. I'll try to put a REAL post together in the next couple of days, but in the meantime I leave you with pictures of Pippin, a Florida dog who had never before seen snow. You'll note the snow along our front walk; yes, it really is pretty much hip to waist deep (it melts a little, then it snows a little, so it varies). It's *cough* a change from Florida, and from Norfolk.

Fortunately for Pippin (1) we bought her a new coat (pink and white! with a fur trimmed hood! She really is a princess, obviously), and (2) there is a spot up near the rocks where the wind keeps the snow swept fairly clear most of the time, so she actually has a place to walk.

The slippery sidewalk obviously isn't a good option for her; the whole "ice" thing confuses her no end.

Poor Pip ... fortunately the house is heated through the floors, so her bed is nice and warm. She appreciates that.
