Winter is winding down---


We turned the heat off this morning, the windows are up and I just put the window fan in the kitchen window, it is down to 74 degrees in here right now. I was in a shirt sleeve today. It is supposed to get warmer as the week goes on.

Ugh, do not remind me. With the Heat wave yesterday. I came home to five inches of water standing on the pad in front of our garage, with at least 2" in the first 3 feet of the garage.

I ended up having to go get a lift pump from the Farm & Home store last night, to get the water out of there. Will end up doing it again.

Of course it all started out, due to we had a 2-3" thick sheet of ice in front of the garage, that was the start of my night after work last night.

We were extremely lucky. My daughter wanted to go to Indiana to surprise her dad on his birthday. 950 miles. Imagine leaving sunny Fla to drive into the storms. I went along to visit with my relatives and to be with her if she had trouble.

We escaped the storm in Atlanta that made the news. We made it over to Ohio, escaping more bad weather. Then we drove home escaping by the skin of our teeth a bad ice storm in SC that had passed thru 11 hrs earlier. For miles along the interstate trees were down. 225,000 lost power, but roads were clear on our drive.

The birthday surprise went as planned. Her dad was at a coffee shop. His friends were in on this and took him to the back of the shop as she slipped in and sat at their table. He returned to his table and did a double take and his mouth fell open. He was speechless.

We kept the car full of gas, I had wool blankets and hot tea in a thermos. Really glad to get home! Of course she said it was my fault for marrying a man who had a birthday in February 😏

It sounds like you had quite the adventurer there Startingover. I'm glad that the plans all worked out and you all made it home safe.

Ha. Someone in Indiana where I used to live sent me a photo of 9 tractors lined up, that were driven to school. That's one way to get to work.

My favorite part of winter is:
Watching it on TV from California.

If someone has some extra rain, send it this direction.
