Hmm, let’s see.
Cars backed into driveway, with tires exactly aligned in single file? Check.
Trash and recycling at the curb a day early, to avoid having to drag them through snow and ice? Check.
Snow shovel at the ready after five-minute struggle to disentangle it from 50 feet of old garden hose in the crawlspace? Check.
Bag of de-icer unceremoniously dumped on front porch after having deposited numerous cobwebs and God knows what else on my pant leg? Check.
Frozen and exhausted? Check.
Okay, Raleigh, I’ve done all I can do to ensure there’ll be no precipitation tonight. You’re welcome.
