Post 1909 - Yes

Yes.  I am back in the city.  I drove back this afternoon.  I wonder: When did it become fashionable not to salt the roads or even to clear them?  I had to drive along the middle part of the101 this afternoon to avoid driving in the snow.

It was no better on the side roads.  Even the road my mother lives on wasn't plowed or cleared or salted or anything else'd.  Once again: when did they decide that doing those things on our roads would not be a wise thing to do?


I got back here mid-afternoon.  Patricia greeted me as only she could:  She presented me with some rotted vegetation from the back of the refrigerator and "asked" me to throw it in the green bin.  "Asked" in the way a woman "asks" a man to do anything.  You know what I mean, guys.  And you know what I mean, too, ladies.   Shame on you all.

I was white-knuckled the whole time driving back to the city.  I managed to get on Live 105 with a brief traffic report, which is always cool, to hear myself on the radio.  But it tuckered me out, so I decided to take a short nap when I got home.  Two hours later, I got up and watched the news and ate something and made my way downstairs, where I've been for the last 2 hours.  Time just flies by down here in my home office.

It's the beginning of a shorter work week for me.  Four day work week.  I promise to think about you on Friday.

See you tomorrow.
