I’m drunk on sunshine today. I LOVE days like this. The sky is blue, the sun is bright, the air is still cool.

(And there are no mosquitoes or blackflies).

I wish I could stay outside all day (day job gets in the way of that most days).

It is supposed to go up to 1 or 2 degrees today, so Jeff and I (mostly Jeff) spread salt, sand, and ashes from the woodstove all over the thick ice on the driveway.

Bake the driveway sun, bake it!!

(Yes, I am ignoring the 5-10 cm of snow that is coming tonight that will possibly eliminate any ice melting progression the sunshine may achieve this afternoon.)

((Yes, I know the windchill tomorrow is supposed to be -25.))
