I left work and went to drive down the hill to go home. I made it a little ways down and slid sideways the rest of the way. Luckily there were no other vehicles so I didn't hit anyone. I made it to the next light where I got stuck for a bit. I finally left there and went up the slight hill to my house. I got stuck on the side of the road. My wheels just spun and spun. I called Russell who got in the van and tried to drive it. He sat there stuck for awhile with the wheels spinning. This is a picture of him trying to drive and going nowhere.
This is what it looked like in the house where snow came in near the window AC. I had to blow dry it so he could get it caulked. The house was 59 degrees.
He probably did not turn the heat up because I complained about the high heating bill that had tripled from the month before. He was in the back room all day playing with the wood stove that he converted back to wood. Someone had converted it to gas. So anyhow I turned up the heat to 70, closed all the drapes in the living room and I was still cold. With the wind blowing so hard it seemed like there was not way to get warm. Later on I made some soup. It's still pretty chilly today but I don't know what the temp is. And I'm not going outside to look at the thermometer to find out. I'm staying inside and trying to stay warm. :)
May you all have peace and joy on this day.
OK so my curiosity got the better of me. I looked outside. It's 23 degrees. Here is a picture of Russell's car. You can tell how windy it is by all the leaves that are blown on that snow drift.
