An Ugly Mess Out There

What with the heavy snows we’ve experienced followed by almost a week of ice rain, then the Polar Vortex plunging us into crazy cold conditions, and finally the sudden warming to above freezing temperatures, the conditions outside are beyond ridiculous. The January melt is in full swing but nights below freezing means all that water freezes – well, to make a long story short, it’s a skating rink out there.  And it’s ugly out there.  With all the sand and salt the trucks have spread in an attempt to make driving a little less hazardous, the melted slush is an ugly shade of grey. The piles of dirty snow is an ugly shade of grey matched only by the colour of the ugly grey sky.

My better half has been out there spreading salt.  Let’s hope it works.

Wait.  This is football Sunday so he’s back in, getting into his cozies, pluncked down in front of the TV and there he’ll stay until both games are over.

Still, with all that, I love winter. Go figure.
