    The cars had a sheet of ice on them this morning. Roads should be great.

    Well, my road ended up being the only bad one that I was on. Traction was probably less than 40% for most of the ride on it.

    Made it out. Mercy. As usual our road commissioner never cinder the hill for getting out of Proverty Valley. Yeah, a good 300 yards up hill with a curve and steeper grade right at the top. One big, long sheet of ice. There's something of a straight away to get a run at the hill and I had my trusty 1994 front wheel drive Olds Cutless doing it's best. I had just replaced the 20 year old tires with news (spoiling my little car). Evidently the new tires and front wheel drive combined to get us up and out with hardly any wheel spin. Looking the rear view mirror gave the same long sheet of ice. Years back with the road much like today I had my 4X4 Chevy. It wouldn't go up this hill. I ended up straddling the edge of the gravel road and in the ditch to claw out of Proverty Valley. It was no joy ride.
    My old 1994 Olds. The Cutless has just over 45,000 miles on it. Yeah coming on 20 years. Most of it's life was spent in a garage. My trucks and the wife's trucks were used for about everything. Anyway I got the Olds out due my truck drowning in the early spring flood. The tires of the Olds, still looking good (Gold Seals), were breaking down inside. You could feel wobble and thumps. The wobble would straight out going around a corner or faster taken curve. Guess what? 14" tires are a thing of the past. I had to special order tires for the Olds. About $350 for a set.

    Anyway, I got out and did some shopping; feed for the wife's chickens, wild bird food (dang stuff cost more than chicken chow), bread and whatever and got a another Xmas present for the wife. Now, I'll just turn up the heat and weather out Christmas. Supposed to have a heat wave, about 30 degrees Christmas. Tonight, wind chills of 25 below.

    Whatever the Christmas is wrong with this site or it and my computer not getting along, I still can't start a Post.

    So, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Hope all is well with all. God Bless....

    Mercy! Another 3" last night and 10 above this morning. Wasn't for feeding the birds and dogs I wouldn't have left the house. I can normally handle cold weather, but not this morning. My finger tips were burning by the time I got back in. I mean, those who have been on here for a while know I don't put boots for hunting unless the snow is well over my shoes. Haven't wore a pair of heavy gloves in I don't know how long....
