We were supposed to have an ice storm yesterday but it was not much of a storm. However it did rain and is very icy and below freezing and many people are staying home.
From watching the news this morning it appears that a fair number of those who did venture out slid off the road or crashed into each other. In Vienna we did not seem to have these problems and I am not sure why. Perhaps because there we had to use winter tires from October on.
Cate said I have to stay home – which is good because I was going to the dentist to have a tooth removed and am pleased to avoid that. It does mean that I cannot go shopping and will have to rustle up something from what is in the fridge.
I am defrosting a rack of Australian lamb and have some carrots and sprouts. Maybe even some snap peas. From the Christmas ham I made my first ever pea and ham soup and it was very good indeed. I added carrot and celery which may have made a difference.
Having sorted out our digital photos I have decided to digitize all of the actual prints which we collected in the years before digital camera.
I have bought a small scanner which will scan four photos at a time and separate them into jpg. files. I have calculated that if I work six hours each day – seven days each week - I will finish the job in about 13 years.
The Colts beat the Broncos yesterday. Who expected that? They are just one game away from the Superbowl. I am not getting my popcorn ready yet because the Patriots will be really tough.
