barksbt i got my errands run today; don't have to leave the house for a few days.
neharmon ok, good for you bark, that rose is good I bet
barksbt the water level will drop before i have to go out.
neharmon ok, good for you bark
barksbt Jim, i have learned to plan ahead.
neharmon i am next to the pacific ocean now, so I am not worried about flooding
neharmon I have very seldom planned ahead
neharmon I just go with the flow
barksbt Jim, i have learned to do that here; especially in the winter time.
neharmon I do not do that in winter in Iowa or any other time
neharmon I just let it happen
barksbt also, i live on a limited income; so i grocery shop once a month.
barksbt hi, dutch.
neharmon I shop when I want and get what I want
neharmon I never worry about how much it all costs
neharmon hi dutch
barksbt Jim, my driveway drops 50' in 100'; i do NOT drive that when it's snowing or icy.
neharmon my drive way is flat
neharmon I do not worry about the weather so much
barksbt well, i have a creek across the road that i do not want to cope with it flooding.
neharmon if it snows, I just blow it off the driveway
barksbt dutch, just jump into the conversation if you have something to say; we can change topics quickly.
neharmon I have a creek a mile from me, but it never floods that bad
barksbt same here, Jim; if God puts it on my driveway, He can remove it.
neharmon my creek is always pretty calm
barksbt well, right now, most of eastern TN is under flood conditions.
neharmon i remove it, I do not wait for God
neharmon God is too slow for me
barksbt well, i wait for God to remove it.
neharmon I never wait for God
neharmon I am much quicker
barksbt i'm too old to get out there and shovel 100' of snow.
neharmon I use a snow blower
barksbt oh, okay.
neharmon it is fast and efficient
barksbt that works, too.
neharmon if I would waited for God, I would have to wait until April
barksbt okay, it's colder where you live than here.
neharmon I can blow off my driveway in a few minutes
neharmon it gets cold some nights
barksbt oh, okay; it would take a while to clear my driveway.
neharmon the coldest this year has been 15 below zero
barksbt and that's just the downhill part; doesn't count the level part where i park my car.
barksbt it has NOT been that cold here.
neharmon I move fast when I blow off my driveway
spmaid i would need five layers of clothes
neharmon the wind chill was much worse, but i do not pay attention to the wind chill factor
neharmon I wear about four layers of clothes
neharmon and insulated snow boots
spmaid jim, so far three layers here
barksbt well, i wear at least 2 layers of clothes, so far.
barksbt and i have insulated boots, too.
barksbt and i keep the thermostat in the house set low.
barksbt dutch, are you still here?
barksbt sorry, the room is NOT a parking place.
barksbt i'm evil that way.
neharmon good for you , those insulated boots are warm
barksbt yes, they are.
barksbt dang, i never saw rocket enter the room.
neharmon I got mine at a thrift store and they have been well worth the price
spmaid he was fast barks
neharmon a great value
barksbt i guess, spm.
barksbt well, i bought mine right after we moved back here and got our first snow in October!!!! LOL
neharmon way to go bark
barksbt Jim, i have never lived where we get snow often.
barksbt is why i have no idea how to drive on the stuff.
barksbt okay, it's nearly midnight for me.
barksbt i'm gonna go find my bed and get some sleep.
barksbt hagn, you two; tomorrow.
neharmon oh ok, i have lived in the midwest all my life and delt with snow every winter
