Powder (Part Two)

There is still a fair amount of it on the ground.  The parking lot outside my apartment is still a skating rink, as is the parking lot at Crest, the grocery store that I frequent several times a week.  The roads are mostly clear, though, which made driving around this afternoon much easier.

I still wanted to well some expletives at the idiot in the truck who roared past me and sprayed water all over my windshield, though.  My wipers were frozen, so I was pretty much driving blind for a block or two until I got to Crest.  It is a good thing I am used to driving through the walls of water the Oklahoma thunderstorms bring.

Rob had to work today.  It was the first day this week he has actually had to.  The weather was actually bright and sunny today, so there was no real justification to have non-essential personnel stay home, though I believe the first shift reported a couple hours late.

I suspect there will be remnants of ice in front of my apartment until sometime next month.  The sun does not hit in certain spots outside my apartment in the winter, so snow and ice take longer to melt in those areas.  It has happened before.  Two years ago, we had snow in January.  There was still patches of it remaining around Valentine's Day.  This is assuming, of course, that it does not hit 70 degrees any time soon, like it has been known to do at odd intervals in the past month.
