Remember when I mentioned I had to get a new battery here? I forgot to say, that was the original battery. Last time it was in the shop, the charging system was checked and the battery was just fine. Apparently, when they go, they go.
Grass green and growing, and patches of snow all over the place. And, the weather guessers are saying there will be a "killing freeze", temps around 20 (F) for over 15 hours. Heck, the highs since Thursday have only been around 40, and they are supposed drop even lower before this cold snap is over.
We still have ice on the ground from last weekends storm. Most roads are clear enough to navigate without killing yourself, or any one else.
And the weather report has us getting more snow this weekend. Depending on the you listen to, the snow should start tonight or first thing in the morning and carry on all day and into Sunday. And again, depending who you listen to, we are supposed to get between 3 and 8 inches. (some say 3 - 5, others are saying 5 - 8)
Out here, you just wait and see what happens. "Psychotic Hot-Line" has a better batting average than our weather guessers.
Well, at last count, we ended up getting a couple inches of mostly ice and sleet. Very little snow hit that we could measure. That should make the commute to work a real treat in the morning. Every fool that forgot how to drive will hit that slick stuff and act like it should react like dry pavement.
Dudette and I are heading out early to avoid the rush. We'd both like to make it to work before most of the world finishes their second cup of coffee.
