The Brunt is Yet to Come

A "winter event" of up to 12 inches of ice and snow is expected today. "O, frabjous day, Callooh, Callay." (Thanks to Lewis Carroll.) The picture above is the layer of ice that arrived last night, soon to be covered by several inches of snow. Needless to say, yesterday I made sure we were well stocked with basic grocery items and I picked up a couple of movies at the library so the three of us can just veg out today.

Actually, the plans today are to start carrying out the old bedroom set from the master bedroom in my mother's house so we can put in the twin bed set Mom has been using in a smaller bedroom. We're going to eventually make the small bedroom into a laundry room for her, as Denny has decided we can do that ourselves rather than hiring a handyman. Because Denny himself is quite the handyman and I'm a pretty good go-fer. We'll wait more towards summer for that, because I'm still not convinced Mom will be able to manage on her own if Denny and I choose to go back on the road this fall. To be honest, I'm not sure if she cares if she lives or dies at this point.

In the meantime, Denny and I will start the slow process of clearing out junk, moving items to the garage for a sale this summer and preparing the house to be sold at some point. I have a feeling that will happen sooner rather than later.

That ice looks treacherous. Your snow fall and weather are making our news. Stay warm and safe.
