It snowed out last night, seemingly looking like it was going to be a major dump, but it was all show, and short on result, as only 6 cm of snow fell in the end. Mother Nature tried so hard last night, but all she could muster for us was a minor dump of snow. But it looked awesome. The temperatures have been to warm for the snow to stay on the ground, and what falls from the sky is mostly rain at the bottom of the Skeena Valley. There is no doubt that there is an above average warming trend this year. But seeing what little snow fell last night, was a welcomed sight. My fear of snow is almost gone now.
Yes, there was a time, only just a year or so ago, when I dreaded snow on the roads. Living in Vancouver, BC for nearly thirty years, put that fear into me, only becuase we did not have the proper winter tires that you needed, and by law, up here in the North, you need them on your car. Today, with my car fully decked out for winter, driving in 15 cm plus snow on the roads is like driving on a spring day out in the country. Good tires make the difference.
Work goes good. I am almost caught up with the Inventory Cycle for year’s end. Since I am the only one there in that department, the challenge is making sure that everything is done right. So I did a lot of rechecking, countless times, before I sent off my work. Yes, there were headaches, and there were some frustrating times, but I got through them all. On Monday, I am very confident that my final tally with be perfect; in other words, all the Inventory Counts will be accounted for.
The remanence of the flu still lingers. Although I feel fine, but in my lungs, at the back of my throat, the cough still lets loose its flem from time to time. The frequency is becoming less and less, but it still lingers to this day, after nearly three weeks. Once in a while I get a fever, or sleeping in an issue, but I am almost back to my healthy self.
I am just looking at my thermometer, and it reads 3c outside, plus it is looking like it is clearing in the skies. Whoa, I think I see shadows on the ground from the Sun? The winds are a little breezy, but that is normal around here.
