Spent the past couple of days... locked behind closed doors, here at home, doing what we could to stay warm. For me that included wearing one of the husband's heavy flannel shirts on top of my own. While the outside temps plummeted, the furnace did what it could to keep up. Our inside temp here could only reach 63 degrees. Funny how that feels colder in the winter than that number would feel in the spring or summer. For the most part... we watched television with the channel on the news and weather. The township finally got the snow plow to go around the street. But digging out once we head outside again is going to be tough. Our cars are not housed in a garage, so they are out exposed to the elements. And because of the storm are covered with almost a foot of snow. That means we have to clean 'em off... in addition to shoveling the driveway. With COPD my husband has to be careful. So I usually try to do the bulk of it. And right now with temps still bone chilling, it isn't going to happen anytime soon. There is a Level THREE snow emergency to the north of us in all the counties. So that means no cars are allowed on the road unless it is essential or you will be ticketed or arrested if caught out and about. That means the husband still can't go to work because he'd have to drive through those areas. So... for the time being, we're content to be snug as a couple bugs in a rug inside the house... until the situation outside improves. Temperatures are going up to 19 or 20 degrees in the next few days, so we're optimistic. How are you doing in the aftermath of the polar vortex????
