Hump day...

It was seriously snowing again when I left for work on Wednesday. We got about another inch that was packed down on the unsalted streets. Plymouth Road was nothing more than an ice rink. I turned on the four-wheel drive, but that has nothing to do with ice.

Sidebar: I still remember my brother Pete's observation back when I bought the VW Thing. I told him I wished I could afford a four-wheel drive jeep. He said, "Four-wheel drive only gets you off-road further before you get stuck."

I don't think I ever got over 20 mph and it took an amazing half hour to get to work.

Sidebar: I think employers should be like schools and have snow days!

I went to Newburgh Grill for lunch. I got a cup of tomato orzo soup and a patty melt.

It had been sunny in the afternoon, but around 4:00 p.m., it started snowing hard again. Made the commute a bit tricky.

Back home, I started the Wednesday night wash. I went out to refill the feeders and found the squirrels had chewed through the plastic enough to break the bird feeder! Bird feeder down!!!

That sucks. I really liked that feeder. I put out some peanuts for the damn squirrels (though they didn't deserve them) and threw the feeder in the trashcan.

I ate some leftover pot roast for dinner.

I couldn't find anything interesting on TV, so I read until bedtime.

    It sounds like you replace that feeder a lot. Perhaps one of those metal ones that closes when any weight is applied.

  2. That was one of the "squirrel proof" ones they chewed through. They popped the metal top and chewed the plastic. Cost me near $50 and didn't work worth a shit.

    BW, I still have that Ruger air pellet gun and am a big fan of fried squirrel for breakfast (thanks to Leon)so this all might work out fine...
