Monday Meh, Post-Jonas edition

 It's c-c-c-c-c-cold out there, but the sun came out during the day yesterday and made for perfect icicle-growing conditions. They are beautiful, though -- at least until they decide to try and escape their place on the eaves and go crashing to the ground. 

Here in the mountains of Upper East Tennessee, we got about a foot of snow between Wednesday morning and Sunday morning. And snow is a normal part of winter here, yet businesses don't bother to shovel and plow -- although you can be sure all the church parking lots were cleared yesterday. I surely didn't appreciate having to wade through ankle-deep slush when I had to pick up my presription! My feel finally thawed out by bedtime, though. 

At any rate, I had my winter experience fot this year, thank you.


  1. But.."Oh, it's so pretty". I will say, here on the plain Plains, the powers that be are on top of the plowing/salting/chemicalizing thingy. I hope you've thawed even more by now.

  2. It IS pretty, and I'm glad that I am able to work from home when the roads are a mess. People seem to have a hard enough time grasping the basics of automobile operation in dry, clear weather, let alone when a few inches of snow fall! But that is another rant for another day!

  3. Temps in the forties here in western Maine with only about 8 inches of snow cover. We should have temps in the single numbers with at least two feet of standing snow.
