Well, we had snow, and ice, and rain. The current temp is 36 (F), however that's going to be about as high as the thermometer gets today. Shortly, the temps are going to be on an icy, downhill slide. This being the case, I did call the store and tell them I was taking a personal day today. Shoveling will be a pain, since beneath the heavy inch of slushy snow there is ice, which needs to be chipped.
My aunt Crystal died Saturday evening. Viewing and services are going to be held on Thursday. I remember her as being loud and gregarious. At 37 years of age, my tonsils were surgically removed because of yearly bouts of tonsillitis. My aunt worked on one of the anesthesiology teams at the hospital. One of the things I will always remember is coming out of the anesthesia and hearing her say, "David, it's your Aunt Crystal, do you want me to give you morphine?" I left my sister a voicemail suggesting she and I go to the viewing and skip the service.
I understand Trump verbally went after DeSantis because, well, Florida's only big enough for one authoritarian ego. Sometimes there nothing better to watch than an authoritarian party becoming partisan with it's own rank and file. I guess the big question is "who's going to throw the first sucker punch?" You can bet your bottom dollar one of them is on the way.
My condolences on the passing of your aunt. Funny how we all seem to have interesting aunt's.ReplyDelete
The snow was heavy!!!!! I went out at 11pm and shoveled my mother's driveway and back and front porch ways. It was heavy as hell!!!!!!! But by morning it as fine as I salted it. Her snow guy can do the damn big sidewalk.
It is heavy as hell!!Delete
But on the plus side..it's a nice arms and chest work out!Delete
it was, which is why I'm going to get myself some ice cream.Delete
Good luck with the shovelling. My neighbour always says to shovel fresh snow immediately (and he's right, because it's easier), but sometimes you just don't feel like it do you. Oh and we got a "high" of 24° today! Not that I care as I like the cold! Sorry to hear about your aunt, she sounds like a real character!ReplyDelete
If the snow had stayed nice and fluffy it would have been fine, but by the time I got home from work it was already changing to sleet and freezing rain. Still, as Maddie says, it was a nice arm and chest workout.Delete
Sorry for your loss, your Aunt sounds like a hoot, and, yes., I will take the morphine.ReplyDelete
I cannot wait for a Thing 45/DeathSantis feud; the ignorance will be epic.
And, thanks to the main stream media, we'll all have front row seats.Delete
Sorry about your aunt. I just kind of imagined her calling you DAVID! and I cackled. Bet she was cool.
And cheeto is furious with Death Santis because he feels he could be a contender.
It's been in the twenties all day here but no snow or ice. Guess I'll count my blessings.
You do know we're probably going to see a GOP deathmatch when the 2 go at it, unless Trump offers him the VP spot.Delete
