After yesterday’s snow storm, I wonder how everyone is feeling. I mean…those guys that have to attend to the grueling job of shoveling and plowing their driveways and the front of their homes. That is the one thing that I dread if I were to own a stand alone home. But, no, that can be remedied, as there are contractors that offer snow removal every season for a set fee of course, for the entire season. For those that do not have that service, I very well know the sore arms after the plowing and shoveling and that also includes people that park their cars outdoors, even worse for those that have to dig their cars parked on the streets.
We had 8 inches right by where we live. Not bad… You know what was really bad though? The gusty wind!!!! Because we are right by the ocean, gusty wind has always been a perennial issue during the winter. Come summer time though, those wind will be such a delight. Now, I can’t wait for that time to come.
Today’s temperature did not help melt the snow on the grounds at all, because the temps dipped down at -3 degrees the lowest in the morning. It warmed up a bit into the 20’s but because of the wind it felt like it was in the teens. Was I glad, I did not have to go out. I totally ditched the idea of going to the supermarket this week. Thank God for a well stocked pantry and freezer. It is during times like this that those frozen and or canned vegetables come in handy, the only thing that is missing in my kitchen right now are bananas, a staple. I just consumed the last piece this morning. So, we will go the next few days without it.
For now, I’m looking forward to Saturday when the thermometer reaches 55 degrees. Yes, that is the forecast! And of course, this Sunday, DST will begin. I can’t wait for the warmer weather to set in.
