Yeah. About that hope I expressed late last night/early this morning, about 2021 not being as much of a shitshow as 2020?
Right around the time I posted that wish, the rain we were getting started freezing. I logged into my Walmart account and postponed my scheduled grocery pickup (normally done Friday mornings) to Saturday afternoon, thankful that I managed to get that done before the deadline. And sometime before I manage to get to sleep (around 2:30-3:00), I started hearing...breakage.
Woke up to snow, heavily iced trees, and lots of sagging, or broken and downed (or dangling) branches. Lots.
We've got no damage that we've noticed to the house or the heat pump, but the compressor housing has a decent-sized branch laying across it. And there are a lot of broken stuff still hanging in the trees, and one LARGE branch hung up on the chimney, that we'll need help to get down...before it falls and takes down the patio roof.
This does not bode well for the rest of the year.
I am not making any resolutions that circumstances will FUBAR.
