We did get ice but it surely could’ve been a lot worse . . although it isn’t over yet. This is all ice — no snow. At 2:30 a.m. I was still awake, listening to thunder and the ice hit hitting the bedroom windows, and watching the lightning flash across the sky and wondering what kind of mess we’d find when daylight arrived. I’d say we’re pretty lucky that this is all we got but then I’m not the one who will be trying to clear the driveway or get the ice off the vehicle.
I think the back kinda looks like a winter wonderland but . . I’m not the one trying to convince Speck that he needs to go outside and do his business. If you see big footprints in the sidewalk ice, that’s because the blades to the heater/air conditioner had a thick coating of ice on them this morning and wouldn’t do anything but make a grinding sound so Vince had to go out and pour hot water on the air conditioner unit before we could get heat. Whoever came up with the heating plan for this house must’ve thought they were living in southwest Louisiana because this one was not designed to work with snow and ice.
The thing Speck likes best about winter is that warm air (hopefully) comes out the floor vents. He loves to lay in front of these vents and stay warm. Think he could get any closer to that vent? (Yes, I could’ve picked up the green scrubby off the floor before taking the picture but then I would’ve disturbed Speck and there would’ve been no picture so pretend I’m a good housekeeper and there’s not stuff in the floor!)
