Thursday. Outside the temp is 31 (F) and we have freezing rain. Supposedly, this is not going to amount to much. A glaze, perhaps. Looking out onto the veranda, there's a lot of shine, but it seems more wet than slick. I'm not about to go out to see how slippery things are. I am scheduled to work today. If around10 ish the roads seem slick, I'll take a personal day.
I went to the dentist yesterday morning to have a filling replace; it was old and had started to leak around the edge making the tooth sensitive to hot and cold. Well, that's fixed now, however, he wants to put a crown on the tooth. Well, that's not going to happen. He didn't like the fact that I'm switching to Blue Cross dental insurance, "they don't pay so we dropped them," he said, "and I'd hate to see you go to another dentist." Maybe if he didn't charge so much that people need to rely on insurance, there might be no problem. A really bad fiscal policy is to charge as much as insurance companies will pay.
I found this nifty! The sound of a wind devil on Mars. This is what it looked like. Someday we will be walking on this planet.
