While we have had a fairly warm winter (so far), it has been incredibly wet. I have ruts in the driveway from turning the van around to discharge on the concrete. We did get one ice/snow event last month and I introduced my husband to the use of kitty litter instead of ice to get traction to move your vehicle. He wanted to spread water softener salt to melt the ice under his car. I told him that my yard and provably his tires would prefer he use the kitty litter.
Ry only wears shorts. End of conversation. It can be 20 degrees and windy and he wears shorts to school or therapy. He gets several comments in his travels but is too polite to tell people the truth. It is too hard to use a urinal with long pants.
They good news is that tomato and pepper plants are 2-4 inches tall. Spring will be here someday.--eak
