Snow Day 3

January 14, 2020

Still snowing. Actually not at this moment, but overnight again. Accumulations are small at home, with promises of more to come. The change today is colder temperatures. I shoveled and swept the front walk this morning, until my fingers got numb. I only had thin driving gloves.

Yesterday, mid day.

Today

Carl’s morning snowmen are so ubiquitous that a neighbor inquired whether he was feeling OK when there wasn’t one in the front yard by the time everyone was up. So, he went outside and was joined by several kids and their parents, creating this storm’s version.

Honestly, the snow is not great packing snow, so they did pretty well.

Carl took advantage of the midday lull in snow and took the Prius in for its every 5000 mile wellness visit. The appointment is today, but driving and busing (home) is more pleasant when it is lighter out. Notice I didn’t say sunny. At 210,000 miles the car is still running well. But we’ll hear later what conditions have popped up. And hopefully Carl will be able to reverse the bus to car to home route, during today’s lull between snow.
