We’ve had our first snow. We’ve had a bit of ice. I’m ready for spring. The snow is so pretty when it first falls and everything is white and clean and crisp but almost immediately, our vehicles go from looking like this:
to looking like this:
The garage becomes full of paraphernalia for tending chickens because everything freezes solid within minutes of being put outside. The hammer is for break ice or cracking coconuts! 🙂
But, most of all . . I’m ready for Vince to give me back my four wheel drive little Honda CRV and go back to driving his own two wheel drive pickup that he refuses to drive when there’s snow and ice on the roads.
And here’s his story! He takes the keys to the S10 with him when he goes to work because his office keys are on that key ring. The S10 is parked behind the Highlander which guarantees that I will not drive the Highlander in the snow, which is also four wheel drive and except that he doesn’t want it to get dirty, there’s no problem with driving it. The real problem is . . that means there are two vehicles sitting at home but I can’t drive either one of them when he takes my car to work. It’s surely not that I have anywhere I need to go but I don’t like being home without a vehicle I can use. Next week Chad will be gone, Vince’s S10 will be in the garage and IF I need to go somewhere, I can take the Highlander but my guess is that Vince won’t dare let that happen so whether we have snow or ice or whatever . . he’ll be driving the S10 so I have no reason to drive the Highlander.
