It's so cold adn icy outside tha when going out of the glass doors in the quad, it's necessary to literally break your way out and past the ice fragments and small snow drifts that iave accumulated in front of the doors. The RD salted in front of the door, but there's only so much the freezing point of water can be lowered using salt, and now, being 16 with forecasts of 7 degrees tonight, it's too cold for the salt to have had any effect. IT has to be over 20 to melt stuff away, so now, I have to walk outside only sing my ice cleets that I strap on my feet. Without them, I slide around dangerously, but with them, I could scale a 45 degree angled hill of ice I think. NIfty and safe let me tell you.
I've been taking naps after dinner for some reason, making it impossible o do what I've said I'd do until it's just too late. Perhaps I'll be able to go to bed earlier than 4 A.M. which is what I did today. The things you'll do to keep a friend awake at the front des in the wee hours of the morning. Too bad it was filled mostly with a heated discussion with one of our friends. At least it kept me awake the whole time, or most of it I should say. I nodded off about twenty minutes before four.
So that's all she wrote from Iceville tonight. I won't be driving anywhere tomorrow. Second thought, I won't probably walk anywhere outside except for when I have to take Fiona out. Gotta love the snow, especially when no one ploughs it. So don't give me "you guys only have four inches and your complaining" comments because four inches unploughed can screw people up at any latitude. Its the other drivers I'd be worrying about, not me, IF I were to drivesay to Wal Mart for instance. Alas, that won't be happeing.
