Monday – Winter Weather

If you’re not familiar with Montgomery Park, imagine two 9-story warehouses with a huge glass wall between them, angled outward at about 40°. If you stand on the top walkway between the buildings, which is inside, you can look down at the outside of the angled glass.

Now imagine someone pouring a torrent of white marbles down that transparent wall. That was what it was like when it hailed this afternoon.

Tuesday – More Imagining

I’ve had an ice-scraper knocking about in my car all year. I cleaned out my car when I moved, but I clearly recall thinking that I should keep the scraper handy, because winter would come eventually. So when I wanted to remove the layer of ice from my windshield this morning, do you think I could find the ice-scraper?

I’m probably the only person in the world who experiences this sort of thing. You’ll have to imagine what it’s like.

Despite this annoyance, my morning commute was quite easy. I left early, expecting snow and ice, but my route was trouble-free. The weather forecast calls for possible snow (Today? Thursday?). We’ll see. I’m hoping temperatures will stay above freezing. And that I find my ice-scraper.
