In a few hours I intend to BREAK OUT! I’ve been cooped-up since Sunday morning. Our Level 3 Snow Emergency was lifted late last evening, permitting us to use the roads ‘for necessary’ reasons. I hope that I can plead ‘near insanity’ if stopped by the authorities.
The temperature has risen to 1 degree after it was stuck at zero for the past 24 hours, rising there from -13. I need to take care, however, that my skull is not rent open by an enormous icicle just above the rear door. It must weigh 10 pounds and is sharp as a needle!
Of course I have no idea if the garage door is frozen to the cement or if the engine will fire-up, but I’m determined to make an escape!
If I do get the car on the road I hear that they are mostly ice-covered and dangerous. Then there is the question of where to go. Around the block? In and out of my driveway? Anywhere will be fine. My psyche needs it. I’ve got to bust out!!
If you don’t see a follow-up to this post later today you can conclude one of 2 things: I’m frozen in my backyard, face down, car keys clutched tightly in my blue hand or two, I couldn’t face going back and I’m on my way to Arizona.
