It started snowing here around 9:15 this morning and I’d better go out there and see if I can still find my snow shovel.Found it and since the path that Aaron had cleared for me the other day was now covered with new snow, I figured it would be a good time as any to clear it again.
So far it looks like we already have two inches of fresh snow and the temperature is already down to 32 degrees. At this rate, I don’t think I’ll be going to Millers later this afternoon. By 9 PM the roads will be in a real mess and it’s not worth it to put myself or anyone else in danger. I already turned down a car chase in Front Royal this morning. LOL… there’s no way I’m driving anywhere NEAR the mountains in this weather.
By the way… I feel much better today. I was a real basket case yesterday. I did smoke one cigarette with Kenny a while ago. It was the most delicious smoke I’ve had in years....sigh
