That delightfully warm day last week seemed like the perfect one to wash the car – maybe one of the last until spring. All the regular hoses had been put away for the season, but I found a short one in the basement (you never know what you will find when you start a cleaning project). I had used it once before and there seemed to be a very small leak where the nozzle attached to the hose. Since it had rained and the car was wet, I simply soaped it up. Then, as darkness was descending, it was time to rinse it off. I turned on the water and immediately got a face full of it. After the initial shock, it struck me as funny, so I continued rinsing the car and myself at the same time.
I understand from a friend in Mt Holly that they received about 4 inches of snow from what was predicted to be a nor’easter on Saturday. Here in Tyson it started as rain so by the time the snow came, most of it was absorbed. I don’t even think there was an inch of accumulation. That wind was the most frightening part of that weather system. Line crews were out long hours in many places.
