One Last Blast Of Winter

It’s been snowing for the last couple of hours and it’s supposed to get down to about 20 fucking degrees overnight.

So much for the temperate Pacific Northwest.

It could be much, much worse, kinda like that outfit the other day somewhere back in the flyover states that went from -37 to + 45  in less than 24 hours.

No thanks.

The wife went to her folks to celebrate two birthdays, it was snowing like a bastard over there before she even got there and it’s gonna freeze up overnight there too.

Bummer for her, the last I heard out of her two hours ago was that they lost power too.

Back here, it’s just me and the fucking cats, I did a bunch of Honey Do’s today while she was gone so I didn’t have to hear I was doing it wrong. It was things that I wanted to get done anyway that had been bugging me but I couldn’t do them while she was here.

I rearranged that disaster of a garage yesterday and got some extra space freed up. On top of that, I identified a whole bunch of stuff that has been stashed away in boxes and shit that needs to go away. That will free up a little more room yet.

I made two giant hamburgers for dinner and am about to fall into a food coma. There is more but I will wait until tomorrow. Since it’s supposed to be frozen solid around here I ain’t going anywhere anyway, unless the wife tells me they still don’t have any power. Then I might have to go get them.

  1. If you are into prepping now would be the ideal time for you to put your wintergear to the test. Slleping bag, tent, bivy and such… just ten meters from your home for one night shold suffice to be sure.


  2. I think our winter ended back in January. For the last couple of weeks, it has been a photocopied forecast of about 68 overnight and 80 for a high. More or less. By the record books, it’s still too early for spring planting and we could get a frost until the end of the month, but it’s probably not gonna happen.
