Raggedy and Baggedy [eventually] schlep themselves to Cubeland

raggedyOkay, got up and took my Skunk Walk, tried to take a pic of the waning crescent moon through the trees. Out of battery. I knew that wasn’t true or at least not exactly true. When I left the Landfill, my iPhone battery was at 100%. 18 degrees doesn’t feel all that cold to me (but I was definitely dressed for it). My phone? Not so much. Got home and tried to beep the Ninja (aka Raggedy) open so I could Egregiously Idle it in the driveway while I shoveled the couple inches of snow we got yesterday. No response. Apparently too cold for the key fob in my pocket too. Grabbed the second key from The Basket (thank you very much!), got the Ninja (aka Raggedy) unlocked and Egregiously Idled while shoveling. And plugged my phone in to the Ninja’s power cable while idling. Yay for multi-tasking!

The roads weren’t all that good early this morning but I could’ve gotten to work but between the shoveling and the dead lucky-shuckial items and the frozen vee-hickle, sitting on the Green Couch Watchin’ All the Dogz Go By (aka working from home) seemed awfully good, at least for a couple hours. And so I did. Topeka made it in “on time” (a loose concept where I work). She lives over in Megalopolis and it took her an hour and a half to go 45 miles on freeways. I was glad to know she got there safely. It might be partly because she’s from the Indian subcontinent and I doubt she encountered snow driving until moving over here but also because I’m gonna guess she’s around the age of my children or maybe even younger and that makes my moomdar go nuts even though age (not to mention country of origin) is NOT the only contributing factor to car accidents in any kind of weather.

I got to Cubeland around 10:30 and the streets improved significantly throughout today and when I walked out this afternoon, I encountered this raggedy-looking old vee-hickle (click and click again if you want to know my license plate number 🐰). Dirty? You know it. And look at those whiskers dragging on the ground. More snow tomorrow? Maybe.

    Look at those decorative auto-icicles! (Not jealous….)

    Cool whiskers!I think we’re finished with winter here, thus the studless snow tires need to be removed from the Focus that Alison drives. I was glad they were on there though for the ice that we had a few months back. It was terrifying!
