A little chilly this morning … -2F/-19C
Oh, and guess who forgot to put the car in the garage last night?
Update: Guess who wisely decided to not put the car in the garage for fear of the garage door freezing immovably to the ground? That’s right, me. I’m a genius.
Peterson AFB was on a two hour delay this morning, and the school district upgraded their two hour delay to a complete closure so I may be getting the company of a stir-crazy six year old boy. That’ll be … uh … great.
On a positive note though, when it’s this cold you don’t find your vehicle encased in a solid sheet of ice in the morning. The snow just brushes straight off, sometimes into the top of an artfully placed boot.
It looks like it’ll be hanging around a while as it’s not due to get above freezing for a couple of days. We usually rely on sun + altitude + gravel to get the roads cleared, and it’s pretty successful if you ignore the broken windshields and scratched paint. After our recent few days of cold our local roads are a sheet of inch-thick ice though, so that old advice that most accidents happen within five minutes of home is very true — often five minutes can be only a hundred yards or so.
