Slip-sliding away!

They said on the news that the temperature would be just above freezing to the rain we were getting all night wouldn't freeze here. That wasn't quite true, as I learned the hard way taking the trashcan out to the road, Tuesday morning.

Then I drove into work, slipping and sliding. But, I made it without breaking anything on either me or the truck.

I was unlocking the door to work when there was a huge clap of thunder and lightning lit up the sky. The rain came down like buckets and I was soaked before I could get in the building.

I wasn't feeling all that great (my sinuses throbbed all day).

I did go to the Newburgh Grill and got a bowl of bean and ham soup for lunch. It was still damp and dreary, so I drove right back to work. I was supposed to get a light bulb for the garage door opener, but it can wait.

I retrieved the trashcan and buttoned up the house for the night.

I washed the two loads of laundry I should have done over the weekend,

I watched NCIS, read from 9:00 to 10:00 p.m. (not that impressed with "Bull") and then watched NCIS New Orleans. Then I went to bed.


  1. New Orleans was pretty good!

    Glad your feeling better

  2. He was one of my favorite characters on Night Court. Sad to hear he is having trouble making the transition to modern dramas.

  3. @ GPF: Yes, it was. I'm glad I'm feeling better, too!
    @ Jake: LOL!
