Meh, So It Snowed

Okay, it snowed a bit over the weekend, again, nothing I haven’t seen before. I know what to do and how to handle it.

While I am not saying I know how to handle any situation, I know that I have the resourcefulness, tenacity and dogged determination to tackle any situation. 

After going to check my mail and do a bit of grocery shopping (as I do on Friday afternoons) I returned to my sleeping spot in my Eastern Home. 

After all of the snow, I didn’t move this morning either. You see, where I park at night is not on a “snow route” but where I park during day at work is. 

This means that city crews will be ploughing today, tonight and into tomorrow. So, it means that most likely I won’t move tomorrow as well.  

I did idle the truck for a ten minutes this morning, though. Don’t yell at me, that was to make sure that the truck will be able to start when I need it to. 

I also brushed the snow off of the truck and trailer. This was to make the truck and trailer look as if someone cared about it and that it was not abandoned. 

I don’t like parking in one spot on the street for too long, but in times like this, I have little other choice. I may move to another spot on the street, if need be, but I will see if I get shooed along.

As far as little old me, I was able to run the furnace and keep warm during the days on Saturday and Sunday. This also meant running the generator, as the efficiency of the batteries suck in winter.

So, for the next few days I don’t plan on running the furnace at all. After all, in winter, all I really have to do is heat myself and I can do that with just my layers of clothes.

I only need to heat the place if I use my laptop, as my fingers are exposed and they get cold and clumsy fairly soon. 

Ah well, this is only for a few more days, and then the warmer weather will return. (Emphasis on the “er”) as the temp will be dancing above zero during they days then to below zero at night. Thankfully this will mostly remain in the single digits. 

As always: keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
