It's been raining since yesterday with freezing temps. My yard is like a skating rink. School busses were cancelled this morning. My outdoor stacks are encased in ice. Thankfully my wood that I will burn this Winter is in my woodshed nice and dry. I don't mean to snub my nose at the have-nots but I've been there before and vowed never again. It is going to get colder later, turn to ice pellets and then snow 10 - 15 cm overnight. My wood box in the house will need topping up before morning. I have a choice of going out to the shed now on the slick bare ice to get firewood, or wait until it turns to snow and hope it is less slippery. I'm thinking sooner than later... hope I don't slip and fall.
