Up early this morning. We had snow yesterday. I think we got about four inches. Before it started to accumulate it melted so the roads were wet, and the temperature plunged so the wet turned to ice. By the time I left the shop last night (about 5:30) it was about 20 degrees.

AND NOT A SNOWPLOW IN SIGHT!!!!

They don't want to pay overtime so if it snows on a weekend, we are on our own. (I pay taxes why?) I live on a hill. When I tried to go up it, a car was sliding down backwards. After I got by him, I slid down backwards. I backed into a side street and saw three more cars try and slide down.

So I came back to the shop. I've got no blanket down here because I loaned mine to someone and never got it back. I piled up some padded gig bags to lie on and covered myself with some packing material (bubble wrap) and eventually managed to doze off for a couple of hours.

Now it is 9 degrees. Supposed to warm up to 25 today. I'm hoping the sun shining on the road will melt things enough to get home today. (It's going back up to the 40's tomorrow and the 60's later this week, but that doesn't help me now.)

My poor cat is probably wondering where I am. She had a full bowl of dry food when I left, but she missed her spoonful of canned food last night.

But the worst part is, I am heating my home with those oil-filled electric radiators right now because my furnace broke and I can't afford to replace it. I have one in the basement that I was going to turn on when I got home so the pipes wouldn't freeze, but of course I never made it home. If my pipes freeze and burst, I am NOT going to be happy!

The sun is shining brightly now, and it shines on the hill early in the morning. I'm going to wait another hour or so and then go try it. If you don't hear from me for the rest of the day it's either because I made it home and went to bed, or because I crashed the car trying. (Just joking - I hope! Nobody will be driving fast enough to induce injury, even if we do slide into one another.)

We got about half a foot here in Utah, and that is down in the valley in the city. So I imagine up in the mountains they had a foot or more. I guess it was Friday when we got it, a little leftovers yesterday and this morning still. Hope you make it home safe! I feel a little guilty, I kinda ordered up this snow. We desperately need a good snowy winter to prevent another fire-y summer next year. Um.... sorry!!! :ph34r:

Don't be sorry, Adalaide, we need lots of snow here too. I wouldn't mind at all if only they would put some sand down once in a while.

I did make it home, and the pipes were OK. The poor kitty's dry food dish was empty! She was VERY happy to see me, and I spent the whole day with her. I'm sleeping in the kitchen right now so I can close off the rest of the house and save on electricity. She loves it because her little nest is right near the heater and so is my little nest. I made a bed on the floor using thick foam padding. It sounds terrible, but it's actually really comfortable. My kitchen is 13X17 so there is plenty of room for the bed and a comfortable chair to read in. It went down to 9 degrees again last night but it was very toasty in there with one heater on 1500 watts, the one in the basement on 900 watts, and I got up in the middle of the night to turn off the one I had on 600 watts in the bathroom because it was TOO warm.

I think except for the road conditions, we are going to have a very nice winter.

Glad all ok. Kitties are good to cuddle when it's cold. Well except that mine has started to try and cuddle my head, as if she were a tabby Russian hat :o
