Ron and Paul's Montana Adventure

Oh, my.

Snow….or granulated water….all over the place this morning….temperatures predicted to be below zero in a couple of days….no one out on the roads that I can hear from my perch beside the closed and locked window.

I need to go out and clean off the windows of my car.

I may be one of the few people out on the road today.

That’s always interesting….like Charlton Heston in “Omega Man”…..roaming the beautiful empty streets, but, in my case, with not a zombie in sight.

I bought tires yesterday before the snow/ice really started to fall….bought them in town at a place that I don’t usually go to but that I’ll go back to….messy, messy, messy….no fancy waiting rooms or anything….woodstove by the old couches (the low overhead waiting room….)….and I saved 40 dollars and had a good experience.

Just a laid back tire store that sold tires.


I don’t know….you can’t judge a book by its cover….that’s such a cliche….but sometimes you try….and miss out on something that’s mellow and what you need.

It’s funny how that works.

So….soon I’ll be out and driving around in this….driving slow because I don’t have traction….driving slow because I don’t know what’s going to happen…..watching the monster trucks come screaming over the hill ….coming towards me while I sit, opening mailboxes, waiting for the monster trucks to come screaming over the top of the icy hill.

That’s scary.

I’m a sitting duck.

There is a lot of ice on everything this morning.

I’m going to go see how it feels to drive around when the smart people stay home.

It’s the perfect winter mix….all the smart people stay home, and the postal folks are required to get out and drive around.

Smart or not…..I should be safer if the smart people stay off the roads.
