Stupid Snow

Two days ago my boys were outside with out a jacket and had short sleeves on. This morning I woke up to snow on the ground. :(

Mica, Isaak and my allergies suck right now. I've been doing the Neti Pot, washing our hair before bed and washing our pillow cases often.

The Neti Pot only takes a few minutes with each person. Those minutes add up in the morning!

This morning I was running late.

I went out to the car. I was expecting to just brush the snow off. Nope it was ice. Not good when you are running late already!

Luckly I had a metal scraper. I say had because this is what happened to it:

I've had it for about 10 years now. Is it silly that I'm sad to see it go? I don't see metal scrapers anywhere. When I do they have whimpy handles. If anyone knows where I can get one, please comment. Plastic ones just don't do a good job.

I also need a battery in my key for my car. That's always annoying because it seems like my car has to be re-programed when I get a new battery for that thing. There are some days I miss manual things. I do like digital locks when I can't find my car in the parking lot. I just beep it until I hear/see it. Maybe that's why the battery is low. Sigh. Our back windshields haven't worked for a few years now. We barely used them. I'm sure it will cost an arm and a leg to fix them. Hand cranking windows up and down would be great! I don't need power windows.

All we have are the plastic ones around here, but if I ever see a metal one, I will send a couple your way :)

It is so hard to find a good ice scraper. I can see why you would be sad to see that one go.

i would not have a clue where to get one... we have two ice scrapers (both plastic) and i think they have been used one time each..

I remember when I had JMan 20 years ago (eep). Just a couple days before the weather was beautiful, like you said, there was no need for jackets. However, the day of delivery there was a blizzard where inches were dropped. Ick.

Up north we used metal ice scrapers too but because it's been so many years, I am not sure if that is what they sell anynore. They work SOOO much better!

Allergies suck. Both GG's and my allergies have kicked in with her's more so than mine. All this time I thought she had colds it was actually allergies. I feel bad but now to figure out the next step(s).
