Tipped into chilly

An impressive wind storm blew in on Sunday, ripping the building paper off the top of our porch and trailing cold weather. Last night while making dinner I could hear an odd sound outside, and when I opened the door to investigate I was surrounded by loud hissing as frozen rain pelted the neighborhood. It accumulated on the cold stuff (firewood) but melted on the warmer stuff (sidewalk), so this morning the roads were clear but the car doors were frozen shut and for a moment I wondered if I was going to be able to open them at all. Definitely a week to break out the heavy coat and gloves, as we’ll be tipping into the 20’s for the next few nights.

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
