Off today and planning my day, actually, there is not too much to plan. I have been on a quest to search and eliminate. Search thru boxes of things and eliminate things that are no longer useful, thing I do not need, or things that I have that I didn’t remember I had and most likely will never use again.
I need more boxes. I was awake at 06:00, in the scheme of waking up that is an hour later than I usually get up.
I saw Emily off and ventured outside to retrieve the morning paper. When you have to put on a coat to get the newspaper it is cold, and when you have to put on boots to get the paper there is too much snow. The forecast is calling for 3 to 6 inches from tonight into Saturday. It remains to be seen. Why do people act like the present storm is something new and unusual. Like, snow in PA…it is not a first time event. But they rush around all willy nilly getting groceries. Most snow storms are over in about a day, with the exception of the Blizzard of '93. It took 48 hours to get my street plowed. I missed a days work because I could not get out.
Not too long after that, the next fall actually, we bought a snow blower. We used it for awhile, but for the past several years we haven’t had enough snow to actually use it. It sits in the storage shed. But I think the real reason for its lack of use is our Subaru's. We just get in our cars and go, but also we have not had a storm like that one again. I suppose one will come but who knows when.
Long ago snowfall. I will get some pictures tomorrow, if it snows.
