It's all about timing
That was the plan....
Next thing you know, it's 2:30 and I'm just getting back in. Seems last night's rain (.1") melted most of the snow while not softening up the soil too much.
So I wondered.... and I was off. Yeah a totally different day than I planned. No TV movies and braising something in the oven. Nope. I ended up sucking up more leaves, adjusting the leaf guard fence, hauling out a hefty load of kitchen compost and, finally, shut down the mower, stored it in the shed and took the battery down to the basement where it will 'float charge' until Spring. *whew* I'm pooped.
Thank goodness for the leaf fence. The nabes have no luck getting things done in that regard, so a lot of leaves are still blowing around in their yard. I just hope they stay there for the winter (and out of my garage!).
I came in, grabbed a cold drink and an ibuprofen and decided to put up a quick post. As I was putting this together, I checked the radar. O. M. G. !!
I'm very glad I didn't know this was coming while I was working. I'm sure I would have let some things go thinking I wouldn't have time to finish.
All I can say is - I'm glad I went with my gut today, instead of following the original game plan. Looks like anybody east of the Mississippi is going to get really wet and really really windy until Tuesday when the temps tumble again. Oh yay. Hang tight, everyone.
