Code Red Snow Emergency 2

I got another recorded message today giving the emergency warning, plus telling the people who have their trash and recycling taken by the city where and when they should put it.

That's because the snowstorm starting tomorrow is expected to be up to 12" by the end of Wednesday. The plow, front loader, dump truck, and shovelers came through today, which is good for most folks, but I'll just wait until they clear this next storm. I am a little worried that the library will be mad at me because I have two books I'm supposed to pick up by Wednesday; then again, the library (the entire county government) isn't open today for me to talk to anyone.

That giant front loader yesterday? Wasn't for us. It was to get the big ambulance out. I wonder if the city said anything to management and that's why we had the place cleared today.

No newspaper today and the newsagent hasn't answered my emails. I suppose he may live where there's no electricity -- about 28K are still out. My smoke alarm started the "give me power" beeping and fortunately, Luke's daughter was visiting him and she kindly came down and swapped the batteries.

This article is about how some credit unions are encouraging people to save by giving them a "ticket" for every $25 they put in savings, and one ticket gets picked a year later for $100,000. Did you know the average amount per person per year that's spent on lotteries is $500? Some one is spending all my share. My credit union does it a bit differently -- every now and then, they give us a winning option each time we use the online banking.

Spirit has continued with the yelling and use of the litterbox once I put it up on the shelf of the end table. The triangular litterbox is due tomorrow; I sure hope that works.
