Well, I’m starting this on Saturday…last Saturday, January 4th. Depending on what happens over the next couple of days with this “significant winter weather event” will depend on when you guys will see this posting. So the storm is still a bit away from us. It’s currently about 1930 hrs. Colts are behind by 6 and there is just a about 5 minutes left in the game. Crazy night. Crazy day.
So, people of course have gone crazy, waiting for this storm. Seems like everyone is going to be making French Toast over the next couple of days. All the local grocery stores are out of bread, milk and eggs. It’s amazing to me that every time it storms, people make French Toast. Plus, I guess everyone is afraid of their pipes freezing, since the stores are also sold out of bottled water. I can kind of understand that, since we are supposed to get wind chills that might be all the way down to -40° F and snow drifts that might be up to 6 to 8 feet tall. I think it would be hilarious if it missed us completely. Heck, I got an email this afternoon from work saying we would be closed on Monday and the storm hasn’t even started yet.
The Colts beat Kansas City in what I think is probably one of the best all time come backs in the play offs, EVER! 45-44. after being down 21 points at the half, they come back and hold KC to 2 field goals, out scoring them in the second half 28 to 6. What an exciting game! Okay, Denver is next! We get them next week!
SUNDAY 5 January 2014
Good Morning….Afternooon….my friends.
Well, the snow got here. I found a ruler, of sorts, and hobbled outside the garage where I could get it in the snow, take pictures of it and be protected by standing in the garage. I’m sure I looked silly as hell to any of my neighbors who might have been looking out of their windows at the time. This old cigar smoking dragon, dressed in blue jeans and bathrobe, hobbling out of the garage, sticking something in the ground, and then taking pictures of it. And from now on, it will be every hour or so, the garage goes up, the dragon takes a picture, the garage door goes down. Anyway, check this out:
That’s almost 10 inches of snow. Okay, so to be honest, due to the placement of the ruler, it is piled on top of about 5 inches from the snow fall on Friday, but that’s an additional 5 inches piled on in the last couple of hours. It’s coming down pretty hard as you can see by this:
Okay, going to send this out now. More later.
Cheers my friends,
