I’m dreaming of a green Xmas

No more white Christmas dreams around here, thank you very much.  Last week we had an ice storm blow through town (Texas rarely gets snow, but we get ice almost every year).  I couldn’t get out in my wheelchair until it thawed.  Here’s my wife walking Dawg in the middle of the sleet-in.


Well, technically, I could get out, but I couldn’t get back. My sidewalk slopes downhill from my front door, and not even my two electric motors would pull my fat ass up that hill when it’s a solid sheet of ice!  So, eventually, I had to dig out the long leash in order to walk Dawg from the safety of my front stoop and that made my wife happy.  (Fortunately the leash was hidden stored in our junk room, not in the long-term storage like I thought.)

IceStorm13aAlthough some of the grass, streets, and  sidewalks had cleared by the time this picture was taken, the walkway from my home to the street was still too slick for me to attempt.  In fact, today I was finally able to get out and about safely.  My wife’s already informed me that we’re keeping the long leash handy, however.  Sigh — I took out her Frankenshoe  and sat it beside the leash in the “dog stuff” box.  Maybe she’ll get the hint.  Maybe.

    Trying to feel bad for you Texans with your little bit of ice….we have ice covered with three inches of snow and 10 more inches on the way. And its 2 degrees out.

    Hopefully you have people who have practiced driving on that stuff — we don’t!
