The abstruse Obamacare may well be what ends liberalism. I think more folks relate to Phil Robertson than Pajama Boy. Time will tell.

I’m having trouble coming up with a clear sentence due to the confusing definition — I find “recondite” to be a bit abstruse.

The news that Kim Jong Un threw his uncle into a cage (stripped naked) to be eaten alive by a pack of 120 hungry dogs is abstruce.

Sometimes, you get the unexpected gift.

Number one son,(Wolf) got up, got dressed, and has been out there shoveling, without being asked. Cleaned off all 3 cars, did the driveway,the walk, and steps.

Poor xsbaby. Her HS had a special alumni lunch scheduled for today, now postponed until Monday bc of weather. She’s having her wisdom teeth taken out Monday, I’d changed THAT appt from today so she coukd attend the lunch! Oh well, can’t be helped now. We got just around 3-4 inches as predicted but it’s dang cold.

DH lolled in bed this morning. Had to use the snowblower to dig out. A good 10 inches in 24 hours. DH is down the street getting the driveway of our elderly neighbors. Everyone else is pretty good. Our neighbors across the street must still be in Nashville with SG, as they are not dug out at all.

I had to postpone my early morning dental appointment til Monday morning. I will be out of here for a late breakfast this morning though. Looks like we are able to get out today.

It’s nothing special here, happens up and down the street. Those with snow blowers help those without.

I had one brief slide as I turned left at a red light this morning. Convinced me to switch on my 4 wheel drive lock. It’s good up to 25 mph, then it reverts to an automatic system. I think I only went above that speed once on the way in.
