Oh boy! 6:00 a.m. and it’s 18° with 20 mph wind and feels like 3° and there’s ice covering the driveway and street, with snow to start at dawn, 3 inches or so predicted by noon when temp will climb to a balmy 20°. Well, as they say, it could be worse, like if the power goes out. Reckon I’ll toss some ice melt on the driveway before it snows and watch the KU basketball game, assuming we have electricity.
UPDATE: Threw some ice melt on about the first one-fourth of the driveway and then waited for snow. It came to the extent of about three inches. Neighbor Justin then showed up with his snowblower (he called it his “new toy”) and got rid of the snow, exposing the ice beneath so I spread more ice melt on the rest of the driveway. Still cold as the dickens. And KU lost. At night after went to bed the wind was blowing and neighbor Alan’s tree branches were rubbing on the power line which connects to house just outside the bedroom window and it made spooky noise that kept me awake but not Becky. It made me think of all the other things I haven’t gotten done with this freakin’ house.
