Now when you want to buy some rock salt you have to stand in line for forty-five minutes to get your few allotted bags becuase everyone else is doing the same thing–or am I doing the same thing everyone else is? I gave up on buying salt. I noticed that the average person buying it was packing at least three bags of the stuff, and at $10.00 per bag, no thanks, I will wait for the cheep stuff. I still have a bag left over from last year, but I remember going through at least five bags becuase we never got our road ploughed once during the three weeks of white hell then. This year I fear the same thing.
What is worse now, is that the weather office has just upgraded its forecast to include freezing rain tonight. Did I mention that we are in for a storm, but with the last week being so cold, below freezing, any rain will surly turn to ice when it hits the ground?
So the weather office is calling for snow, ice/rain with wind, 50 to 70 Km/h gusts. Yeah… . The last thing I need is freezing all night becuse of a power outage!
I got a flat tire too. It was a heck of a time getting that thing changed. The road where the flat occurred was super busy, and the gravel part was not the best surface to work on. That waisted half an hour of my day fixing that. The garage told me that is was a screw, about 1 inch long that was longed into the tire, and that they were not sure if they could repair it.
So I’m at home now, and I’m going to stay put. Today could be cursed, so I’m not going to push my luck by going out again. This is a good night to stay and do some reading, and snuggle up by the electric heater.
