Dunno whether the self-storage place next door plows their own parking lot or hires it done, but either way I bet they’re not thrilled.
I’m not sure who ought to clear the sidewalk on Route 45 near Curtis, but somebody should. I’m fit enough to clamber over three-foot snow walls blocking crosswalks, but hundreds of my neighbors are not. @Applebees @cvspharmacy @SchnuckMarkets
I’m not sure who ought to clear the sidewalk on Curtis Road next to the U of I Solar Farm, but somebody should. I’m fit enough to trudge through the 12-inch snow, but hundreds of my neighbors are not. @UofIllinois
I have rewarded myself for all my hard work with a mug of hot cocoa. (I have shoveled the walk, put down salt, taken out a bag of trash, dropped the outgoing mail in the mail slot, and checked for today’s mail (which had not yet arrived).)
today’s SSW is potentially the most dangerous kind, where the polar vortex splits into two smaller ‘child’ vortices.”
I’ll omit the otherwise irresistibly tempting joke about “child vortices.”
Daily gratitude: Today I’m grateful that the snow on the sidewalk melted before I had to shovel it.
Snowflakes are drifting past, hanging in the air like giant virus particles.
The snow is inadvisable (according to the National Weather Service).
Chilly rain on the last of the snow is kinda cool. 📷 #mbfeb
Bitterly cold today, but a nice blue sky. (The opposite of warmth? I ask in a lame attempt to touch on the micro.blog photo prompt for the day.) 📷 #mbfeb
