A taste of winter

November 15, 2010 - Deb Gau
My weekend was a bit anticlimactic - all that buildup of winter weather warnings for the region, the consultation among Per Peterson, Jenny Kirk and me to make sure we were okay for reporters in case of a big storm, the waking up early and staying in reach of my cell phone - only to see very little snow in Marshall in the end. What did fall Saturday morning was pretty much melted by mid-afternoon. But I can't complain, as there were plenty of people who were indeed snowed in to the south of us. A little tweak in airflow, and Marshall could easily have been in the slush too. Better to be ready for it than not.

I had also been meaning to get my winter weather preparations made for this year, anyway. So now, the ice scraper is out of my trunk, along with extra hats and mittens, a shovel and a good pair of overshoes. I've got a new car battery and my block heater ready to go. I suppose all I need to do now is go get a bag of cat litter for emergency traction, and I'll be all set for the next weather warning.
