Re: No Snow

Woke this morning to find a good 4 inches of wet snow, and a mix
of rain and sleet falling.  Not nice! It is 39 degrees now and still
raining fairly steadily.  Thank goodness our snow-plow guy showed
up about 9:00.  Since we are on a private road, the town doesn't
plow us and the neighborhood has to contract with someone to 
do the road.  The same person sometimes does some of drives.
This is a new service this year - the guy who had come for quite
a few years did a worse and worse job, until we finally had to 
get someone better. This fellow has done a nice job this 
morning - even got out of the truck and cleared our steps. Since
we no longer have teenagers to do such jobs and the one in the 
neighborhood is not interested - doesn't need jobs - it is good to
have someone to do it.  I won't let Chet shovel snow any longer -
not good for him at his age.

No snow here either, but down to 22 last night and supposed to happen again
tonight.  Wrapped some plants with frostproof and put xmas lights under that
to try and add warmth.  Won't know how things did until tomorrow pm when it
should be safer to unwrap.  Keeping my fingers crossed.  Bet i lost all the
loquats fruit tho, hoping i didn't lose the whole tree. : (
