My fatigue wall has jumped up and smacked me in the face so I'm going to head out before I fall asleep at the keyboard.  Smiley

Everyone sleep well and be safe. Smiley Smiley

Morning. The storm, at least around here, wasn't as bad as predicted. Skywise shouldn't have too much of a problem getting to work.
Had a bad nightmare about SunLord. Fortunately the big furry goof is bouncing around the house like an overgrown kitten this morning giving the lie to my dream.
I will now finish making tea and see how the rest of the state -- and the world -- are doing.

The world is still out there and the road situation around here is pretty good.
Dodged the bullet this time.

Just heard that another round of nasty weather is due this weekend. Oh joy! Guess I'd better make sure that the supplies are topped up. *sigh*

I wondered why Skywise was awake when I had that nightmare this morning. It seems I was calling him loudly enough in my sleep to wake him up.

Skywise hasn't called yet but I'm heading out. I have a stack of his shirts to hang up provided I can get them out from under SunLord who was sleeping on them last I looked. I've been reading about the Blizzard of '78 -- Skywise pulled a NWS article off the internet -- and I remember it well, even if it was 40 years ago!

Anyway, laundry calls so everyone sleep well and be safe. Smiley Smiley

Afternoon.
I've been on the run today. Skywise got home at 3:30 and we had to go into town. Once we got home and he was on his way, I went downstairs to get some printing done before Spirit wanted to use the computer. I got done just in time. She's up from her nap and ready to rock. I, on the other hand, really need to get prone for a while! Nice how that works out!

I took a painkiller about 50 minutes ago. It hasn't kicked in yet or if it has, I haven't noticed. Dinner is finally in the oven -- not moving very fast tonight -- so we should have a hot meal in about an hour or so. Skywise won't be home by then but lately, I've been expecting him when he calls to tell me he's escaped from work.

The painkiller finally kicked in so I was able to get some "on my feet" type chores done and I "should" be able to sleep tonight without my knees hurting every single time I move in my sleep.
And no, Skywise still hasn't called.

Dinner is ready and Skywise is almost home. He called about 40 minutes ago. I'm going to head out now and eat.

And I thought yesterday was hectic.
This morning started with Skywise waking me up to see if I wanted to go into town with him 'cause the car needed a new battery NOW.
Spirit was already in the van so Moonie and I suited up and we went along for the ride, stopping at Arby's to get sandwiches to eat at home -- which we did.
The battery is installed with Skywise heaping curses upon the heads of Chevy engineers --I really think he's going to stick with Fords from now on -- because of what he had to do to get the old battery out and the new one in. He shed blood in the effort.

The weatherdudes are saying 3 to 6 inches of snow by Friday night. It is currently 48 degrees.....

Oh joy! Oh bliss! Oh [expletive deleted]!

The weatherdudes are now saying that 3 to 6 inches of snow will be preceded by an as yet undetermined amount of freezing rain! I HATE FREEZING RAIN!!
Fortunately, supplies are topped up so we may pick up some odds and ends tomorrow but that's it. I just wish Skywise didn't have to drive in it....

According to tracking, I'll get "A Fifth of Beethoven" tomorrow as it arrived in town at a little before 1 this afternoon. I have a couple of other things -- books -- that have no tracking on them that "could" arrive tomorrow too. I hope so. Given the weather forecast, I'm gonna need to be distracted.

Afternoon.
It is currently 57 degrees, cloudy with a slight breeze. No rain to speak of yet. We have the front and back doors open and the furnace is off. We're airing the place out a bit before it gets bone-chillingly cold again. Smiley
My cd came today and I'm expecting another package tomorrow. There may be another one or two coming too but they don't have tracking on them so they could be anywhere. They'll get here when they get here.....

Greetings.
We may not get out of here tomorrow. Or Saturday.
Shopping will have to wait.
We could have a lot of ice in the morning.
With snow on top of that.
Followed by gusty winds which "could" knock out the power depending on how much ice is on the lines.
Then it is going to get REALLY cold.

Tell me again about global warming......

Greetings!
We made it to town and back. Went to the bank and had lunch. Shopping can wait!
The ice wasn't as bad as predicted. The snow started just as we were leaving and has picked up steam since. I just checked the radar and it looks like it will be snowing all day.
Now to get thawed out....

Skywise left at a little after 1 pm. He has his emergency backpack and his food kit. There are no serious accidents reported on 37 and he promised to take it slow and call me once he's in the parking lot. Currently waiting.....

Skywise called at 2:30 as he was heading for the door at work. It's snowing steadily here and since I've done all I needed to do online for the moment, I'm going to get prone with a good book. I have a number to chose from. Be back later.

Back for a second. It looks like we have about an inch of snow and it's still coming down.

Skywise works tomorrow thanks to a temperamental bitch who had a fit, walked out of work and called in for tomorrow and Sunday. Skywise was asked to cover for her and he agreed. He doesn't want to but his boss was in a bind.

Currently 21. I think that the snow has stopped. With the wind and it being WAY after sundown, it's hard to tell. Hoping Skywise gets off early so he WILL take is time coming home.
