Drove over to Home Despot and bought a bag of sand for our back steps and walk, where we can't use ice-melter, and a tub of ice-melter for the driveway and sidewalk.  This has been a winter of iced surfaces.

Air temperature 30 F, wind WNW about 5 mph, windchill 25. Managed a zero-falls walk for the newspaper. Sunny with scattered clouds, which may melt some of the ice from yesterday's rain. So it can refreeze tonight . . .

Raining, 35 F. Rain in February often turns horribly wrong . . .
Well, at least I have retrieved the recycling bin before it froze into place for the duration.

Due to the continuing onslaught of junk calls, all incoming calls go to the answering machine. If you are a real person we actually know, leave a damned message.

Air temperature 8 F, calm, overcast after a bit of sunrise. Storm, junior-grade, not yet arrived. We're supposed to warm up to mixed precip and then rain.

More snow removed from garage and workshop roof and driveway and car. Taking a break to cool off and lunch.

Air temperature 22 F, wind west about 8 mph, windchill 12. Partly cloudy, impeding view of predawn planets. Need to finish cleanup of yesterday's storm in preparation for tomorrow's . . .

Dragged some snow off the roof of the garage and workshop. I'll get more tomorrow, using a stepladder.

I might have seen our neighborhood bald eagle cruising by as I worked on clearing snow earlier.

Ran the snowblower and then shovels and broom, got the car out, fetched a newspaper. Second cup of coffee now finished. Life can resume.

Air temperature 25 F, wind NE about 10 mph, snowing with "feels like" windchill 15. I contemplated the snowplow berm at the end of our driveway and decided against wading out for the newspaper. Snowblower first.

Air temperature 4 F, wind north about 5 mph, windchill -3. Clear sky now, supposed to snow tonight into tomorrow -- 6" to 18" depending on where weather-people move us in the state.

Revisiting the same battles with the same outcome. People see what they want to see.  People believe what they want to believe.

Headline in today's paper, "POCKETS OF STATE AT RISK FOR MEASLES" . . .

While they are talking about Maine, I'm sure pockets in other states are also at risk. Get them vaccinated!
