There’s S*** on My Car! Thanksgiving Day was very pleasant. Despite my misery from a head cold and the OTC med I took to stop the sniffles, we had an easy drive and a good visit with relatives. The day brought partly-cloudy skies and mild temperatures. Today started off damp but well enough. As the day progressed, however, clouds continued to thicken, the winds came up, the temperatures went down; when evening came it was prematurely dark and snowy-icy bits were falling from the sky. I walked from my office to the car and found it covered with a thin layer of s***. Tonight the wind is howling and, whereas we started the day with a temperature of 52 degrees (F), it is now 31 and feeling like winter. Suddenly the Christmas carols that some radio stations here have been playing don’t seem to be so premature!
