Beautiful calm before the storm today. Snow in the forecast for tomorrow and Friday.

I'm glad you are okay, just a bit of an adrenalin rush. That's why I don't like to see the temps go above freezing in winter.

I'm reminded of a comedian who said his mother always told him to wear clean underwear, in case he was in an accident. He said that if he saw an Mack truck barrelling down on him, his underwear wasn't going to be clean.

Still dark and an unlit intersection, perfect place for black Ice.

Yes, gave me the shakes!

Thanks Z! I'll go put the baby tires on the car this morning. I really don't want to do that again!

Well, isn't that just perfect car-shopping weather. What a mean trick for your car -- to give up now. Just a couple more months would have made a burdensome job a little less awful. Good luck on both counts.

It is time!

Every spring I say "might as well coast along until fall"

Every fall I say " might as well chug along until spring"
