It's snowing hard in Burlap at 7 AM!
Winter as it's supposed to be, right?
Ch. 3 Weatherman Gary Sadowsky says 4-8 inches.
The plan calls for a Montpeculiar run.
We shall see.
I'm still learning how to drive this Toyota Prius Hybrid rental I've got while the Ol' Saturn gets repaired in the body shop. Now the word is the Saturn - that got a $1600 ding in the Mary Fanny parking garage - won't be ready until tomorrow.
So, I'm learning new tricks. The Prius doesn't even have an ignition key. A bunch of new buttons to learn, but I'm getting the hang of it. We'll see how it does in snow, eh?
And the crew is due to arrive any minute to remove the old furnace and install the new one. Tomorrow's the hot-water heater. Unfortunately those units are parked behind my refrigerator here in the ground floor mother-in-law apartment, so I'm out of here for the day....
The house was built in 1981 - the year Ol' Bernardo won the mayor's office by 10 votes - on Burlington's Southend, the "famous" Five Sisters Neighborhood.
Everything wears out sooner or later.
Do give the Ol' "Inside Track" a look today in Seven Days. I don't know if Ambassador Peter Galbraith's going to run for governor, but he is a very smart and interesting chap.
And yes, I really did write something nice about The Burlington Free Press.
Paula the Publisher couldn't believe it!
P.S. Sen. John McCain the GOP front-runner after Super Tuesday?
Mad Dog Jim Barnett must be in good spirits this morning.
Too bad McCain didn't make it to front-runner in 2000, instead of whatshisname, eh?
