07:08 pm - January thaw
Melt, hence bicycle. Hence got to the drugstore that sells grippers to buy a new pair against Monday's threatened freezing rain, and to the super for more road salt ditto. Also made it to the Korean pharmacy that has lambswool knee warmers in its window. Have not measured knees to see if their L would fit, and the question is moot because the things cost $65 plus tax. Should see if any of my small stash is actually wool-wool and crochet my own, or just wait to see if Thursday's cortisone shot does the trick instead.

Also dumped remaining bag of salt in front of Indian Gardener's house, and several hours later removed the sidewalk iceberg which was, oddly, black. (Is why I suspect runoff from his garden.) The wet will freeze again tonight, alas, and snow on yard melting tomorrow will also turn to ice, but one does what one can. Elmtree's dad who lives five doors up hadn't even noticed iceberg's existence: what it is to be young and surefooted.

Crossing my fingers for milder weather for you. $65 is certainly quite high for knee-warmers.

Thank you. The long range forecast shows above-average temperatures for the next week- bar that -13 low on Wednesday. Also minimal snow, so maybe I shall be mobile.

BTW I still owe you a response to your email, but I've been having an attack of brain weasels lately and they've, uhh, pretty much eaten my brain. Apologies. When the synapses calm down, I may be able to consider dragons again.

No worries: I can entirely sympathise.

That's very expensive for knee warmers!! Let me know if you decide to measure yourself.

I'm afraid to, for fear of utterly shocking stats. (Yup- 16" at mid-knee.)
