6:02 am - Thursday - January 11th - Grand Canyon - 28º F, 75% humidity, wind 1 mph out of the south.....forecast high is 47º F with clear blue skies once again!  I feel about 97%  again this morning, and feel pretty good at this early hour. TLE on the other hand is not doing as well.....she has had a little bit of a setback with her cough.....BP 127/72.

We half expected to awake to snow on the ground Wednesday morning, and that is exactly what we did......


.....I had the 'open' shift so, initially, I had planned to have TLE drive me to work so she would have the car to drive to work at noon, but this is how we found our VW at 7:15 am......


.....I thought I had a window scraper in the back of the car (TLE is going to look for it in this picture), but, alas, I did not, so I decided I would walk to work.....it wasn't that cold, and there was no breeze, so I set off down the road to work leaving TLE behind to bask in the warmth of the Newell interior.....


.....because it had rained for a couple of hours before it began to snow there was essentially ice under the snow, so walking was a little tricky, nevertheless, I made it to work in about 15 minutes without taking a spill.

From 8 am until after 1 pm I had a total of 5 customers......very very slow.  TLE was not feeling 100% so I told her to wait to come in until 2:30 and just work the last 3 hours, which would be pretty slow.  Between 1 pm and 2:30 pm it got very busy, and then it quieted back down just after TLE arrived......the temp was about 40º and the snow had begun to melt.  I ended up dropping $233 for the 7 hours I worked, and TLE about $30 for the last 3 hours.

I walked home to leave the car with TLE......took me a little over 10 minutes with no ice to worry about.  I changed into my pajamas and took an hour nap.  Although I was tired my energy level Wednesday was much higher than Tuesday.  By the time TLE arrived home just before 5:30 pm I was feeling pretty good, and continued to do so into the evening. TLE, however, coughed a lot, and ended up sleeping in her recliner for the night.

So, now we have had our second minor snow storm of the season....I think we got about an inch of snow.....not sure how much rain came before that.   We're getting used to cold weather, and snow on the ground, but this is only the 3rd day we have had snow on the ground in over 60 days, so we'll see how we feel when there is snow on the ground day after day.

Thanks for stopping by!
