Forecast calls for 2-4" of the white stuff so the plan was to kick back let it all happen then shovel or snow blow. Mary and I had breakfast, scrapple on toast with American cheese and a side of home fries, then got a few things done around the house. About mid-day the snow let up so I ventured outside to clean up the driveway, back deck and my SUV. It was a light powder and I used the snow shovel like a broom to finish up the drive and I actually used a push broom to do the back deck. I decided that while I was playing snow fighter I may as well go to the airport to clean off 08Romeo.
Roads were wet, our development road was the only hard part of the excursion. Why people don't park in their driveways during snow events just puzzles me. For one, it keeps the street clear for the plows and second it covers your drive way and leaves less to shovel.......Duh.....Hello...McFly! I make my way on to the airfield through the Red Eagle gate and notice the winds have blown a good portion of any snow accumulation away. 08Romeo had a few inches on her wings and stabilator but with a soft bristle broom it cleaned off very easily. I took the extra time to clean off the cover, check that the pitot and nose plugs were secure before heading home.
I made a stop at our favorite deli to pick up a large italain hoagie and a bag of chips. The fireplace was cranking out the heat as we enjoyed our lunch, it is amost time to watch football!
