We were up early just in case the freezing rain has started, had our coffee, Donna left for the truck company. and about 08:00AM I decided just to be safe to make a quick run to Shop & Save for a couple of items even though we had stocked up earlier in the week. As I was pulling out of the driveway it started with the freezing rain, I made a quick stop at the store, no more than 30 minutes and in just that time the roads were icy, 4 wheel drive and 10mph, but I did see Dardenne Prairies only salt truck pulling out of the parking lot as I passed the City Hall, so they were starting as soon as they could.
Donna called and said she would work through her lunch hour and leave early, I hope when she leaves the State and County trucks are out, all they can due is keep spreading salt and brine spray, luckily the temperature is right at 30 still, so that mix of brine and salt should still be effective. This is supposed to keep up all night turning to snow late and then snow all day and night Tuesday. Oh boy.
Have to wait now until she is safely in the door, I think tonight will be a Hamburgers and Mac & Cheese night with a vegetable, nothing fancy. My son Andy has decide to try and start his own remodeling and rehabbing Company, He said the same thing my son Tim did when he started into building houses, why work for somebody else I think I'll try working for myself. I hope he is successful, When Tim started the economy was way up and houses were selling like crazy, I don't know that now is a good time to start any business, but time will tell, he claims a lot of people are fixing up instead of buying new now.
Well that's it for now, the news is saying " Midwest bracing for major blizzard" so all we can do is wait and see. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
