It’s been hovering around zero at night for most of a week and not a lot warmer through the day. Our furnace finally shut off for about half an hour this afternoon—the first time since Monday. I’ve been getting my wife and dog taken out about every other day to combat cabin fever, but it’s gotten the best of them a time or two. Our little dog has come to expect a little ride every day and mopes when she doesn’t get it. She’s getting worse than my wife!
It started snowing sometime before 4AM and only stopped for about an hour this afternoon. I managed to get the dog to take her daily “doo” in the snow, so she’s good for the night, unless she gets some unexpected urge. She’ll have to drain about every three hours, though, especially now that she’s got another urinary tract infection.
The snow has started again with a vengeance, but so far, we still have less than six inches. Of course that’s still deeper than the dog. Currently, it’s 4 degrees here and the snow is coming sideways more than downward. There won’t be any taking my granddaughter out for her birthday this evening, and probably not tomorrow. At seven, she’ll be disappointed, but it will probably all be okay if the waiters bring her a cake and sing Happy Birthday, whenever we DO get her out.
Guess I’d best get off here and go back to work on my “trip” project for CDL class. Ya’ll try to stay warm (and sane)! © 2014
