Frigid , snowy Saturday

Saturday, January 26, 2013

The frigid temps prevail, lots more snow this morning. We have errands to run today,, just around town.. I would not chance going up north since I hate having to brake for deer on the expressway. They will run right up to the shoulder of the road, stop,, tick-tock, you are about one block away and they suddenly jump out onto the roadway like your headlights are a sign for free salt licks!!!!

I have only hit one deer, but it had already been hit by the motor home ahead of me,, so awful to do...

This does not mean that we are any safer while driving within five miles of our home. The wild animals behind the wheel are worse than four legged beautiful animals. You would think we lived in Arizona the way they drive.. I mean, they act like it is warm, no snow or ice on teh roads, clear, sunny day.
They should sell tanks for us to drive during winter months,,
DD is still asleep, I have dishwasher to load, papers to sort, tax things to organize for mom's and my income tax appointments.
I dread going outdoors later this morning, but the mama bear needs to leave the cave...

    My son hit an 8 point buck about 12 years ago in a tank of a vehicle, '85 BMW 535, and the impact pushed the whole engine compartment back 4 inches. This happened within 2 miles of our house. You're right about them waiting to jump right out in front of you.

    People down here drive just as stupidly in the rain /fog as they did in the snow when I was in Illinois! Be careful out there!

    OK, so a deer would bother me. It would damage my car.

But there is a commercial on now that says "we are remembering our driver training ... we're breaking for squirrels ..." Ummmm, no. They are just lucky I don't speed up.

    LINDA.You kind of sound like me. I really would love to be in a warm place but I cannot imagine any place better than here. We have looked to the south and there are just too many people out there. I like our slow paced life here. I do not to want to drive on six lane highways anywhere.
I like 2 lane highways 2 on each side because I do not like to drive too slow. Take care and hopefully stay warm HUGS Pat in Maine.

We are up to 20 degrees because the ocean breezes are warming our Atlantic coast.(DREAMING?) Hugs and love you Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You could have kept the cold air and snow on your side of the lake. LOL

    Greetings from the land of mammalian assault via motor vehicle. My tally to date: two deer, one cow and assorted smallish varmints of the field and forests (gradually, over the last 15 years or so). You might really be onto something with the salt lick concept.
