An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).
- We had a significant accumulation of snow overnight so I was pleasantly surprised that the driveway was mostly clear when I opened the garage this morning as I was preparing the snow blower. For whatever strange reason the concrete pavement was warm enough that more snow melted than stuck. Unfortunately, it’s supposed to snow all night and I doubly I’ll be that lucky tomorrow.
- This year, I made sure to inflate the tires on the power base so I would have enough traction to get through the first snow fall. Last year I forgot and was struggled through most of the driveway before I figured out why it was so hard to turn around. So, I’ll be ready for tomorrow.
- We haven’t had a day that the weather was remotely good enough for rowing since we returned from our final rowing trip of the season. The weather around here has been “typical” for December. We’re hoping for a good day or two this winter; but we may not have one until next spring.
- Christmas is next week. I’ve had a lot of distractions this December so its really rushed up on me. I’ve done some shopping; but still have a bit to do. Hopefully I can get finished on Tuesday which will allow a week for shipping.
