ASHES TO SNOW

Running on a layer of ash . . .

It felt like winter this morning – 30 below, Celsius.

Which is pretty much like 30 below, Fahrenheit.

Since Monday, three days ago, we got another 2 inches of snow.  Whoopee.

Couldn’t get my snow blower started, so I dug a couple of trenches in the driveway so that I could get out.   Laid down some wood ashes for better traction.  Spent a couple hours running around town, then headed back.  Checked the ditches for semis.  Nary a one.

We got lucky today.  The rest of the region got minus 35 and minus 40. 

Feels like winter.  Just need some more snow.

    We are battling 80F weather, trying to keep our feet from being burnt on the hot sand. There must be a happy medium!
