Yesterday morning I looked out my beautiful replaced kitchen window and I saw my daughter out by my car just shoveling and chipping away. She had been out there sometime before I noticed her. I hurried and put on coat, hat, gloves and boots and went out to help her. About an hour later my car was cleaned off. We both tried to back my car out but it wouldn’t budge because of the ice and snow underneath. It got up to 43 degrees yesterday and there was some melting. I will try again this afternoon.
Things are a mess outside as there was a thick layer of snow on the roofs and the melting onto to the sidewalks has caused ice (heavy in some places) to form. Very treacherous. The temp today is to reach the lower 40s.
There are 28 days left on the countdown till spring.
It is very depressing being stuck indoors and not being able to go even to the grocery store. I feel fortunate though because in the eastern part of Pekin over 3000 people lost power for several hours during the storm Monday night.
There is to be another inspection today to check for further tornado damage such as cracks in the walls etc. They were just here last Thursday and they all track in and don’t bother to wipe their feet even though I have several rugs spread out by the front door. Very disgusting as I am the one responsible for keeping this place clean and I do not like a mess!! And that is my rant for this Wednesday the 19th of February, 2014.
For Pam in Illinois, I went back through my old blog postings and found that I took the pics of the magnolia/tulip tree in March of 2012 instead of March 2013. What can I say except that my mind has endured a lot this past year. LOL
Have a wonderful rest of the week. Stay safe and be happy!!
