It’s a cloudy morning here in Port Loring. We didn’t have any snow overnight, but it is snowing now. We will see what it has in its system as the day moves forward. Highway 522 at the moment, is snow covered with lots of icy sections throughout. It is also a touch cool outside, with it sitting a-12 C | 10.4 F. lt will warm up as the day moves forward, but not much. With the winds coming in from the north, these so, so cold temperatures will feel even colder. So, knowing that my lovely wife and I will be staying inside today.
As I have said many times, the older I get, the less I like the cold. I can see why folks enjoying going south, or to a warmer country, every winter. With all this money, our Powers That Be are giving away to other countries, if they wanted, they could pay for all us seniors wanting to go to where it is warm. Actually, that isn’t a bad idea, as it would save millions of dollars a year with health related issues, that us seniors obtain from staying in the cold. At the very least, they would break even, along with making the remainder of us older folks days, more comfortable & enjoyable. Would that ever happen. Not very likely. The truth of the matter is, they have their heads so wrapped up in themselves they can’t see any further than their nose. My opinion only, of course. Then again, they are even trying to outlaw free speech nowadays. Makes me scratch my head at times. If they ever did that, I guarantee it would come back and bite them in the ………
On another note, yesterday was another workout for my wife and I, cleaning the snow off our decks and driveway. I have to admit, we have had our share lately. Today we will recuperate once again. I did get my shop stove going yesterday, so that the ice and snow on my snowblower would melt. Now it is ready for our next batch, which is sure to come living where we do. The good news is we are heading into February, which is a short month away from March. When things should start to warm up some.
Today I will work away here on some stories I have in mind.
With that I am off for a bowl of cereal and will then see what the day has lined up for me. Life is like a mystery novel … you never know what the next page might bring. Until you turn the page, or as in life, as every hour passes.
Stay safe, there is a lot of sickness out there these days with this virus. And so I have heard it isn’t very pleasant, major chest issues and coughing, feeling sick, you name it, and one friend of ours said that after putting up with all that for a couple of weeks or more, now it has turned into pneumonia, and she is flat on her back in bed hardly being able to breath. So … it’s not all that good out there yet, by the sound of things.
