Smell The Roses...

The latest storm dumped its huge inches elsewhere, coating us with sleet 1/4" thick, or so, taking all day/night to do it, then added 2-4" of light, powdery stuff Monday... At 6:07, school was rescheduled two hours late. At 8:07, the superintendent's wife called, and school was canceled. Tuesday morning, I un-iced the truck windshield and drove it CAREFULLY down the hill, leaving one nice straight set of tracks I hoped I could make it back up.

When I got to the bottom of the driveway, I was afraid I would not make the road if I put on the brakes, so I let my momentum take me right on around the corner onto the main road, which had no traffic on it at all. The entire time I was doing the chores, the only vehicle I'd seen was the sander. Good man! Love to follow him in, not lead him in. I arrived about 20 minutes late, after leaving about 30 minutes early. Nobody said a thing, and I was NOT the last to arrive.
