This was the scene looking out our front door at about 8:30 this morning. We had already decided that we wouldn’t go to Church. We had rain and snow mixed yesterday and by evening the ground was covered with snow. By this morning we had some 6-7 inches of wet snow with high north winds. Our snow blower had set in the garage without being used for nearly 2 years but I decided it was time to put air in its tires and “fire-it -up”. It started on the first pull after putting gas in the tank, checking the oil, taking out the spark plug and squirting in some starting fluid. The City snowplow had cleared the street with a ridge of the wed snow piled at the end of our driveway.
Fortunately, I was able to get the driveway cleaned before the ridge of street cleaning froze solid. The temperature dropped throughout the day from the high 20’s while I was out to nearly zero by now. It is a good day for “Super Bowl Sunday” by our being confined indoors. The halftime show and commercials are as interesting to some of us as the game. It’s not until the end of some commercials that we can tell what they're selling. My favorites are still the Budweiser's. It was bad enough that Verizon & AT&T stock went down this past week without having to watch the Sprint commercial making a deal for anyone turning in their Verizon or AT&T phones.
