This is Day 394 of 15 Days to Flatten the Curve. Deb and I are ok.
Here on the home front, late yesterday we learned that the local forecast for a dusting of snow overnight had been revised to “1 to 3 inches.” We swung into action, started Ernie’s engine, waited for the coach to achieve “travel height” and then brought the slides in. The job took only about ten minutes.
The reason? Each slide has its own awning, called a “topper,” that extends with the slide. As a precaution, we retracted them to prevent wet, heavy spring snow from gathering on (and potentially damaging) the toppers.
Dipstick got Scout and me out of bed at 4:30am this morning. We walked out the back door to find that an inch or so of snow had fallen already, and it was still coming down.
No, that’s not much. But a pair of yew bushes across the driveway from Ernie served to illustrate why we did what we did — their branches were bent halfway over under the weight of the snow.
That same snow on the toppers wouldn’t’ve been good. Deb and I did the right thing. We congratulated ourselves on our decision.
I’m not sure if we got the full three inches of snow. Whatever fell, by sunset it was all but gone.
That high-profile criminal trial in Minnesota, and the verdicts rendered yesterday afternoon, haven’t been subjects I’ve felt compelled to discuss here on Ubi Libertas Blog. There’s enough ill-informed chaff in the air right now, and I don’t wish to add to it.
What I will say is that I was struck by the speed with which the jury reached its decision. I’ve taken longer to eat a good sandwich.
That wasn’t a deliberation. It was an emergency evacuation.
What’s far more disturbing, to me and to other true Americans, is how shamelessly the current occupant of the Oval Office, along with the laughing hooker who stands by his side and every one of their sycophants and sympathizers, are using race as a bludgeon.
I’ve never been so politically and morally opposed to anything as I am to this dishonest, destructive, dangerous regime.
And I have to remind myself: I’m a citizen of this country, not a subject of its government.
Take care of yourselves, Patriots. Stay calm. Stay sharp. Stay free.
