The good news is the shit is actually starting to melt here in the day time.
The bad news is that I gotta go to work tonight and they are predicting a bunch more Freezing Rain between now and tomorrow morning.
So after I gargled down a half a cup of coffee I went out and cleared off the windshield and the nose of the truck and cranked it up to let it run a bit while doing so.
I have a feeling that the city will have plowed the main drags around here which is going to be a pain because I have to have the cable chains on to even get onto the street but as soon as I get to the main road there won’t be that cushion of snow the chains need.
That means I won’t be going much over 25 mph most of the way to work.
It is what it is.
I normally leave about an hour early anyway so I will be leaving even earlier than that today.
It’s only seven miles one way according to my trip odometer but it is actually up hill the entire way there for the most part.
Which means it’s down hill on the way home.
I normally stop at a little Gas and Go type outfit and pick up a couple cans of Monster Energy drink to supplement the caffeine in the coffee because I can only drink so much coffee before it starts tearing my guts up.
10 hours of wandering around a huge plant on concrete and steel grate floors with steel toe boots on takes it out of me so I have to use High Test fuel to keep going after a bit.
It’s going to be interesting to see if anyone else manages to make it up there.
I figure if I can get up there in that damn Caballero in shit like this with cable chains on I should be fine in a full size truck.
I’m damn sure going to find out one way or another.
I’d also like to take a second here and say Thank You to you fine folks who have hit the Donation Button already.
I sent thank you Emails but want to make sure you know how much I appreciate you doing that.
