Snow day

It started snowing last night after I got home from 13 Coins. It was a light snow here but steady. Icy roads and bridges gave pause to my usual early morning trip to the pool and then I realized that even if I lived through the journey, there was a good chance that they might not be open or open on time so... I slept in.

When I did get up, I saw snow still stuck to the tree limbs but gone mostly from the roads. The roads around the gym are much higher so likely snowier. I'm having an English muffin and coffee in bed and when I'm done with that, I'll call the gym and make sure they are open and head on out for both a swim and to mail the tax stuff off.

Snow at night is kind of wasteful if you ask me. I love watching it and walking in it but those options aren't as much fun at night. The current forecast calls for mid day snow tomorrow. That's a much better plan.

Nothing else on the agenda for today. It's a true play it as it goes day. I do have a good half of last night's beef stroganoff for dinner.

Going there for dinner last night was a real treat. It's a wonderfully cozy and comfortable place for dining but particularly for dining alone. The service isn't the best - it can be slow and sometimes not even detectable. But the strog was perfection. And the walk is perfect. Not too long and not too short. I suspect the service will get better. 13 Coins has always had great service so I think what I've experienced in the three times I've been there has been 'new shoes' ... once they get everything worn in, it will be fine. A rich bowl of beef stroganoff on a cold night? Best thing that's happened to this neighborhood ever.

Ok, just called the gym and the nice morning counter lady said that it wasn't easy but that she was there to open on time this morning. Impressive. Especially considering this was the gym that on many occasions even in perfect weather, has been known to open 30 minutes to an hour late because someone forgot to show up or forgot the key. Maybe those times are truly history. That would be nice.

It's 8:20. If I leave now, by the time I swim and go to the post office, the bridge coming home should be clear of traffic. Here's hoping.
