Sorry you went through that PF, but I'm laughing all the same.

*******************

Got up from the living room sometime after 5:00 PM to put my coffee cup in the sink and was greeted by a beautiful sunset; the rosy glow was even deeper "in person". Unfortunately, all the weather forecasts for tomorrow seem to contradict "Red at night, sailor's delight".

That was half my problem, I was so busy laughing over it... I don't know how many trips I made with handfuls of salt to scatter on the darned ramp, but it was at least 5...

Aw Jeez, I hope you were dressed warm enough. Next time bring your cell phone. I bring mine when I step out my back door. I know something stupid could happen in this weather.

Warm enough, no cell phone, my CNA didn't even realize I was missing.

For those of you in the south who are not accustomed to snowy weather, here is a weather chart you might find useful:

A light snow is falling. A hint of what is to come.
