To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!

About Me

My photo
I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!

If all anyone has to talk about is the weather, then they must have a pretty boring life. Today I have a boring life! Wednesday, though cold, was gorgeous, with cloudless blue skies. Yesterday, we had snow forecast. I know this is nothing to you in the North, but we rarely have snow and ice so we are never prepared. I made it to work and stayed my 8 hours. Luckily I have a driver so made it home fine. The driveway was a bit icy, the steps WERE iced, but by walking on the grass, using my cane, being careful, I made it. Temperature never got above freezing. We had sleet and some snow. Three ladies in the office left at noon, another left at 4. The boss left about 4 to go home to get some sleep, knowing he'd be out all night. Our crew was out all day and would be out last night, putting de-icer on the roads. One of the men not on the crew was going to stay all night to answer the phones. The governor sent word about 3:30 that state offices would not open until 10 today. It was too late for me to reschedule my morning bus so I would've had to leave home as usual about 6 a.m. I planned to go to work today but the thermometer on my porch showed 10 degrees at 5 a.m., and with 15 mph North winds, the wind chill brought it to about 5 below 0! I called dispatch and canceled my buses for today. Just too risky navigating my front steps and the driveway. Maybe I could have sat in a cardboard box and SLID down the driveway to the street! I lived in metro Tampa, Florida about 30 years. You know where I'd like to be right now! Stay warm, y'all!
