Yesterday afternoon while Max was away getting his haircut, which the cat was enjoying immensely, I decided I’d better go out to the shed and pull out the snow shovel. There was some slush that was gathering on the back deck and the front steps that I thought I’d better take care of earlier rather than later. As funny as it would look, I didn’t want my wife going a** over tea kettle when she came up the steps after a long day at work.
The drive in this morning wasn’t a bad one at all. It was a wet snow that had fallen overnight so the streets were in good shape, although that didn’t appear to be the case on the corner of 4th Ave. and Garnet St. On my way in I noticed the flashing lights of a cop car up ahead in the distance and wondered what could be happening that would involve the coppers at 3 A.M. Actually, that isn’t that odd of a sight at that time of the morning.
When I arrived at the scene, it turned out to be nothing serious. There was a cab up on the grass on the opposite side of the road by the park on 4th that appeared to be going a little too fast for the conditions. How he got up in that position was a bit of a mystery. I didn’t think I could do that if I tried.
Oh well, just another day after the first snowfall of the season. Next week is promising double digit temperatures, so consider yesterday a bit of a practice run before the heavy stuff starts falling.
