Icy morning

If it’s not snow to clear from the car before pulling out to work …

Glazed and confused.

… it’s ice.

Windshield layer.

My Chevy Cruz had a thin layer of freeze all over it on Wednesday morning in the Galeville neighborhood in Liverpool.

All around freeze.

I thought maybe that a few minutes running with the defrosters on would take care of it. Nope. The scraper had to scrape.

Flat and ready.

The driveway did not look daunting for the back-out.

But then I had to decide which way to maneuver out of the neighborhood out to the main drag.

Down far that goes.

I feared that the steeper hill might cause a problem at the end, where it spills out into traffic at a stop sign.

Less imposing.

The other direction is a longer path, but with less of a grade.

I went the way with less hill. No problem.

  1. We had some ice Wednesday morning, Mark, but not as bad as yours. What I found amusing, though, was that about 4:00 pm, my boss overheard some ladies talking about how bad the roads were getting, so he told me I could go home before it got worse. it was 45 degrees out. The roads were merely wet. I left anyway. When the boss says I can go, I go!
