The last couple of weekends have been pretty laid back. Not much scheduled, especially weekend before last so I was a complete slug. Pulled out of it a bit this weekend. On saturday had a nice time visiting with some folks we don't see that often at this time of year and then on sunday got some cleaning and sorting done, plus the start on a couple of projects. Some reoccurance of the lumbar issues have been a problem and it also doesn't help that it is waaay to cold to work for very long down in the sweat shop but still managed to get a short stint in. Hopefully I can finish up one of them with handwork and then get it in the mail. Another project I had been wanting to try was recyling a tshirt into a quick bag. Very simple, went fast, now to see how the bag holds up.

Weather forecast for this week is just plain icky but, at this point, no ice in the forecast for our area. We seem to be right on the dividing line, north and south, for the systems that are going through. I don't wish ice on anyone but I have to admit I'm happy not to deal with it here. Parking in the garage here at work is going well. It has been a real stress-reliever not to have to worry about what I might have to deal with getting to work, etc. Walking the bridge was the unknown and, to be honest, they could probably do a little better job of keeping it clean/treated but all in all it hasn't been bad. And as I think I have mentioned before, having a railing also makes a big difference. Thanks again to Himself who lets me have our one-car garage in the winter!

At least compared to the last couple of days that is. We had one pipe at the house freeze up a bit on sunday. It was the hotwater line to the kitchen sink. It thawed quickly but then refroze in the afternoon, despite the cupboard doors being left open, so we set it on a trickle and it made it through the night. This seems to be our only serious problem spot though, and only when temps are in the negative teens.

The same cannot be said for a waterline at work. Yup, same one that froze up last week, that we reported to FO. It thawed, but apparently no insulating was done so it froze again, and busted. It has leaked into the offices below us so FO was already working on it when I got in yesterday morning. Water is shutoff in this area as they still have to find where it busted. Then there will be a lot of sheetrock work..... It is in our largest conference room. Fortunately nothing is schedule in there until the first week of January but I double booked those meetings into the other conference room just in case.

Got the last of the holiday errands done last night and topped off the tank while I was at it, not knowing for sure what today's forecast would end up bringing. So far not as bad as predicted, but I'm not counting on a trouble free drive home. Half-day at work tomorrow, then a 4-day weekend courtsey of the Governor. Thanks Ma'am :)!

At least with any accumulation. I do like the first snow fall, especially if it is after turkey day and before Christmas, kind of like Mother Nature joining in the holiday mood. But it also brings out a lot of stress.....cut for self-indulgent hip angst.... Read more... )
