Twenty Minutes to DeSnow the Car!

February 1st, 2015 at 02:19 pm

When I went to bed Saturday night I knew it had been snowing a good part of the day - but it mostly hadn't stuck. Apparently it snowed all night.

This afternoon I went out to go to Sam's Club and Walmart and it took me at least 20 minutes to clear my car off enough so I could see out the windows. That was not even removing the ice - that I had to wait another ten minutes for because my hand was frozen.

The roads were pretty slick. Getting on to the road towards Sam's, there was a semi-truck stuck trying to turn right on the other side of the road. It still was there an hour later on my way home! There were stuck cars all over the place on the side of the road.

I made it out to Walmart with only a little slip and slide at the traffic lights. Of course I didn't write my list down, so I forgot to get the PB2 at Walmart - Sams of course didn't have it. Gas was $1.85 at Sam's, which was only a few cents cheaper than the corner station here.

Walmart - $28.xx (cat food, Fage - coupons for both, 5lb frozen veggies, bananas, etc)
Sam's - $13.28 cat food for NE (he'll pay me back- put on Discover card towards the 1k spending)
Sam's Gas - $14.48 (Discover card)

I now have a load of laundry in the dryer. I need to empty the dishwasher. I'd planned on walking over to my landlord's to deliver the rent check today ... but yeah, no. I'll take it over after work tomorrow - hopefully the roads will be more clear.

I can just guess how many times I'm going to hear the phrase "I'm freezing out here! When's the bus coming?" tomorrow .... Or my favorite - Tell me EXACTLY when the bus will be here ...

    My husband went to the gas station and said it was slick, so I'm glad we are basically inside today. We had rain BEFORE the snow so that is part of the problem! Glad you made it back home safe.

    I probably would've been smarter to have stayed home, but was just needing to get out and once I had cleaned my car off ... Smile

    Glad you are still in one piece! How do you use that PB2? We keep seeing it at Big Lots.

    At Big Lots? Really? Do you remember the price? I pay about $4 for a 12 oz bottle.

    I use it in my smoothies as added protein/smoothness. You can also add water to it and make "peanut butter" less calories and fat than peanut butter - but what I really like about it in my smoothies is less mess than actual peanut butter Smile
