Rarely does snow stay around here this long...
I said to Poppy, imagine going outside wearing short sleeves and feeling the sun on bare skin. Imagine a clear blue sky. Kinda hard to do. We woke up to freezing rain this morning.
The temperature finally climbed above freezing. Our snowman friend is still out front but has lost weight and is looking a little sickly. Tomorrow I will give him eyes and a smile again and adjust his scarf. I noticed one of our neighbors slowing down as she drove past earlier today so her two year old granddaughter could see Mr. Snowman. She needs to see a happy snowman.
Oh, update on the TV/VCR on Craigslist. I got a call back from the lady saying she could meet me at a mall in Raleigh on Saturday (yesterday) at 1:30. With the animals taken care of, Eli settled in, the house straightened up, and myself ready to go...I trudged through the ice to my car, which had not been moved since the snow fell on Wednesday. Well, the car would not budge. I got out of the car and shoveled the ice and snow from under the tires enough so the tires would be touching the gravel and get enough of a grip to back into the grooves made by Poppy's truck. Making it up the half frozen half muddy path to the highway I was on my way. Seems then I felt the car skip, then again...probably my imagination. About fifteen miles down the road the 'check engine' lights came on. Needless to say, I was afraid to continue on toward Raleigh. After calling the lady and explaining the situation, I turned the car around at the first clear driveway, stopped at Walmart and bought groceries and came home. The lady promised to hold the TV for me. Hopefully, we can meet this week.
Better finish up supper. Another day gone. Hey, it's March 1st. Spring is getting closer. Hope to be back soon.
These strange tracks in the snow went all through the back yard...
