It’s no hot water in the bathroom Sunday

It was a lovely 9 degrees at 7 AM and I was too glad to see the sun come out to warm things up…kind a.  It won’t make it above freezing today, but I’m hoping that what ever froze to cause me not to have hot water in the bathroom will thaw out.  That has never happened before.  The cold water is fine.  Hot water in the kitchen is also fine.  Weird.  It’s really no big deal to take a bath in the kitchen, though I know some people that would be totally freaking out right about now, phoning their friends, family and heading to some ones house to shower.

Yesterday, Wilber let me leave at 5 PM instead of 7.  The roads were really bad and it took 48 minutes to drive home the 10.2 miles.  The other drivers were behaving well and I got home without using my breaks.  There are a few steep hills on the way here and I was glad that I could downshift to slow down.  I saw two cars in the ditch and was glad that I wasn’t one of them.

I got home just before it went completely dark….

Aaron had been nice enough to shovel me a path to my door through the yard.  Thanks Aaron :)

After warming up my home, it was time to put on the slow cooker.

Spicy Cajun smoked sausage, pork ribs, onions, garlic, celery and green peppers.  Yummy :) 

At 7 PM I got a call from the snow removal company that we do work for.  Ruben and his crew have been out in Centreville since 8 last night.  That’s 13 hours as of now.  I really hope that I get a call from him soon letting me know that they are finished.  I really hate it when they are out that long and worry about them in this bitter cold.  It’s sad, but for many of his crew this is the only work they have been able to get in many weeks.

Millers is open today, so I’ll be going in at noon until 5.  I better get ready since I don’t know how long it will take for me to get there.
