Normally I try to write something to keep my sanity but here lately well?? It seems that ever other day since the first of the year we have had some kind of snowfall, just an inch or two, what he calls a nuisance snow, enough to screw up the roads, keep your car covered with salt and cause cancellations at the clinic.
Well last week we had an ice storm and was it destructive, taking out the power, 40 year old trees and bring our lives to a screeching halt as we know it. As luck as I know it, well it was my turn to open at the bar so OK. 😬😬. I managed to slip slid in, where I found the place dark, no the cook was not there to open and greet me. Managed to get the lights on, few phone calls then found the ice maker dead. My regulars, my heroes, showed up, bags of ice from a gas station, life went on.
Despite no food until the middle of the day, still had a good crowd with no complaints.
Mom messed herself up pretty bad, went to the grocery store with dad, came out to get in the car, yes there was ice, car had parked close to them, she tried to get in and slipped on the ice. She fell back, hit the other car, then her door and slid under the car. Nothing broke but she looks like she went 10 rounds with Ali as her leg, arms and face is black and blue.
Saturday night we made Valentine’s Day for her and dad as she was feeling just a bit better though still battered, spaghetti with sauce, stuffed mushrooms with sausage and cherry cheesecake. As we left I told mom, don’t let dad take advantage of you, she told me she would make sure he did.
