Thankfully, I put on my gore-tex and shoveled during the afternoon yesterday. Anything that wasn't touched yesterday is a ROCK today.

Thankfully, we didn't even have enough to shovel down this way   :thumbup:

Day off from work gave me a chance to head up to BPS and check out some stuff.  :yes:


Stay warm!

It is definitely tough to depend on my glasses.  I look like Velma from Scooby Doo crawling around looking for my glasses if I drop them! I am similar with depending on things. I am always one to drive somewhere so I am not depending on someone giving me a ride, or using my own tools so I dont have to worry about breaking someone elses, or know that they work.  Contacts will be great for you when you get used to them.

@metz12 Thanks for the pep talk! I know I'll get used to them, but I just hate being dependent on anything, Period.

And I will definitely be getting contacts. No doubts about that at all.

Glasses are tough for sure Curt. I've had glasses since I was 3. I have an astigmatism in both eyes, and have issues with both near and far sight. The first time I saw 20-20 was when I was 18 through my glasses!! I have become so dependent on my glasses I cant have them off for a long period of time besides sleeping. I tried the whole Contacts thing and putting them in and taking them out was tough, but because my prescription is so bad they where too uncomfortable to wear.

But in my line of work, my glasses have the added value of full time safety glasses, which is a plus. Gotta find the positives in everything!!

My Dad is having the same issues. He needs to wear glasses full time, but refuses too. My uncle who is 75 borrows a pair of glasses from his brother to get his eyes tested for his licence because he refuses to use anything besides readers!

Good luck with the new eyes Curt!

This morning we had some whopping thunder and winds though! Only a trace of snow left at 8:00 this morning. I was supposed to start a kitchen remodel tomorrow in Exeter.  That wont happen with this cold coming. I am not leaving the shop tomorrow! Customers aren't happy when I told them I wouldn't be in today after I snow-blew their driveway (for free) so there was not 2" of ice on the driveway so I can get in without issues Tuesday. They will just have to deal with it!

Its actually a good thing the game is on tonight. It gives a good excuse for many to stay home! Go pats and everyone BE SAFE!

Well, after putting it off for the last few years or more, I finally ordered my first pair of prescription glasses today  :o

I've been using readers for several years, but lately it's gotten to the point where even stuff in the distance is blurry  :crying:

I despise the idea of wearing glasses full time, so I will be getting fitted for contacts soon.

None of this will alleviate the need for reading glasses, but at least I will now be able to see people's faces clearly if I see them from a distance, instead of squinting.

Can't stop the aging process, I guess  :nope:

It?s going to be bad tonight with the ice. Hopefully people stay home and watch the game. Accident city.

Agree 100%. Nobody should be out tonight unless they absolutely have to be!  :nope:

The next 48 hours are going to be brutal with low temps and icy conditions.
