I knew it

When you have a bit of snow in the South people nut up and use it as an excuse not to go in to work.

I did take the Ram out this morning to carry a package to Fedex with every expectation that they would be open. I mean after all they can get a package around the world overnight and be able to track it every step of the way, you'd think they wouldn't let a few inches of snow stall the works, would they??

Turns out they will.

After careful navigation, with my usual superb driving skills, honed lo these last 45 years, I arrive in front of the building only to find that some people aren't as dedicated to work.


With the freezing over and possible icing this evening it may be a while before I'm able to get out again.

Fortunately, the larder is stocked with comestibles, stores of propane are in readiness, squirrel beds are located and 12 gauge shells loaded, we're ready to withstand at least a 3 day seige.

I'd hate for it to become a Donner party thing though, the ol' Grump would make mighty tough and stringy eating. Perhaps with enough boiling and some dumplings and lots of pepper.........

Nah, better hope we don't run out of squirrels.

There are deer all around the place, in Roswell! If the blizzard continues, then the local popo won't be able to respond to reports of gunfire (or reports of hanging deer out of season) ...
