WE ARE UP A LITTLE EARLY THIS MORNING….. THE COYOTES WERE HOWLING OUTSIDE OUR BEDROOM WINDOW……

I REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED AND IT WAS ACTUALLY SCARY……. AT THIS POINT LIVING UP HERE IT IS JUST ANNOYING….. YOU SORT OF ROLL OVER AND SAY…… “LET ME GET TO SLEEP”……

AS I WRITE….. THERE IS HEAVY FROST ON EVERYTHING THIS MORNING……. AS SOON AS I FINISH, I WILL START THE CAR AND DEFROST THE WINDSHIELD…..

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS….. A LITTLE FROST ON THE WINDSHIELD ISN’T A BIG DEAL…….

WE WILL BE LEAVING FOR WORK 10 MINUTES EARLY SO THAT WE CAN GET THE BUSSES STARTED SOONER…….

THE SCHOOL BUSSES WE DRIVE TAKE A LONG TIME TO WARM UP…… WITH ALL THE THIN GLASS AND LACK OF ANY INSULATION THEY  ARE ALWAYS COLD DURING THE 7 MONTHS OF WINTER……  WELL……  I HAD BETTER START THE CAR……

IT’S -5C AND DARK…… YOU KNOW WHERE THE LONG JOHNS ARE…….
