It's been a month since I contracted a head cold that subsequently progressed to bronchitis, and while it is still plaguing me, yesterday, for awhile at least, it was in remission enough so that I decided to try doing my exercise routine, which I had not felt up to for the month. I'm pleased to say that all went well and my spirits were elevated when I was able to complete my workout.
Around 0530 I took a peek through the curtains of the front window and lo and behold the windshield, well actually my entire car, was encased in a 1/4 inch of freezing rain. Holy smokes, I'm on call! If I get called it'll take me a half hour to clean off the windshiel!! (Not good) So out I go in my PJs and start the car and turn on the defroster and cross my fingers. At 0630, when I left for work (no I never did get called) the car was clean as could be. It was still raining but not freezing on my car. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the roads. The worst was the parking lot at the hospital though: a refresher course was held in the lack of control one has over their car when on glare ice. Fortunately no mishaps occurred,. I got the car parked safely in the snow bank and carefully exited and crept slowly across the lot to the safety of the building.
A fitting way to end February. Now on to spring!
