Freezing Rain On Emily’s Birthday

Interesting Shaped Icicle

Oddly shaped icicle growing outside a window on our back porch.

Saturday, January 11th, 2014.

-4˚C / +25˚F @ 1:00 pm with rain freezing and people having a heckuva time getting up the little hill on the corner of our Street and Canada Street.

We had planned to go check out an all day breakfast place that one of our local “spies” had suggested. But the cars going whirrrrrr whirrrrr Whirrrrrrrrr trying to get up that little bit of hill here changed Cathi’s mind before she got both eyes open.

Happy Birthday Emily, Dal and I’m trying to remember what ‘whatsername’  McCarthy’s name was (She lived across Clayton Street from my cousin in the 1990’s- as a kid she wanted to buy a horse and thought they could pick flowers from neighbouring houses’ gardens and sell them on the street corner to make enough money to go buy herself a horse.) 🙂

Also- Yesterday, I wanted to try to get to Home Depot to see if they have the kind of shelf brackets we left behind when we moved here 🙁

I need to build a couple more shelves before I can turn around in the office here without being afraid I’m going to knock something over, break something or slip on something that fell from  somewhere.

(Downloading video clips from flip cam as I type this, in a while I’ll be able to post scary pictures. But not quite as scary as the ones that got away, with one of our neighbours taking mini baby steps to try to inch her way up the hill (more like moving in milimeters, trying to stay vertical, trying to get somewhere  in one piece…..)

Frozen Rain on Tree Branches.

Sunday, January 12, 2014.

+7˚C / +45˚F @ 8:15 am. Grey and very wet outside. Puddles on top of ice.

We went to Alex’s new (to him) apartment yesterday for dinner. Stopped to pick up a salad @ the Atlantic Superstore @ the corner of Smythe And Dundonald. Several employees were standing inside the air lock/entrance/exit. Several people were standing outside in the rain waiting to be let in. One man waiting outside announced to newcomers who came along and tried the door that the store had had a power blackout and they were waiting until their computer system, including all the cash registers, was back up and working and nobody knew how long that would take. Ten minutes? Half an hour or longer?

While we were there another couple people approached from the slippery soggy wet icy parking lot and another woman from outside came to the door, unlocked it from the inside and announced that it was going to take longer than they thought it would to get back up and ready to open their doors again.

Cathi and I gave up on that store and went to the Sobey’s on Regent Street.

We had a very nice dinner with Alex. After we got home (stopped on the way to pick up breakfast coffee at the Main Street Tim Hortons) I quickly developed a wicked headache, probably from all the strain of trying to walk on very slick ground.

I took aspirins and plopped on the bed while Cathi tried to listen to Coast to Coast A.M.

This morning it is still very wet. Our road is still ice covered and wet. Our driveway is still icy and has larger & deeper puddles on top of the ice.

We have several things we need to do today, and I need to write quite a few notes and get quite a few late holiday cards and greetings out.

We need to get out and buy more salt, and several other things.

I hope to write more here later.
