You’ll be happy to know (or not) that I finally got that blanket of white crap off of my car. However since it is still totally surrounded by that lovely stuff, (I work in stages) the car isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
You’ll also notice that I am now the only one who is still stuck. Everyone else has been up and running for days. The reason for that could be that they are all in better physical condition and more energetic than I am, or, and this is the one I prefer, even though they’re weak and puny, they had no choice because they had to get to work.
Anyhow, since I was running out of a few things, I decided to walk down to the store, which is no biggie, because 99% of the time that’s what I do anyway. The only time I take the car to go shopping is when I have to stock up and can’t carry it all home, or when the temps are way too low which has been the case until today. Today it is 40* F. Forty!!!!!! It feels positively balmy.
To make a long story short, when I got to the store my eyes were a lot bigger than my brain, (surprise, surprise) and I ended up with quite a few “necessities?” Needless to say, that ¼ mile walk back home felt more like a 5 mile uphill hike against a 30mph headwind while carrying a small car, and took a lot longer than expected. But I have to admit, this is the first time in weeks that I actually felt toasty when outside. I also rewarded myself with a bag of Hershey’s truffle kisses. Okay, maybe it was 2 bags, but the temperatures are supposed to plummet again tomorrow so they were definitely a necessity.
