That's Kansas idiot powder. Just add car drivers.
I was doing 65, no problem, and there were 4 cars greasy side up with people around them on the way to menards this morning, and probably 10 more in the ditch. The lanes were clear, just slush build up in the center of the lane, and the dotted lines. You could do speed limit just fine, but had to slow down to 40 or so to cross lanes...they didn't. Then there's the people that HAVE to drive in the painted lane, swerving and throwing slush everywhere, and running other cars off into the slush pile on the side, even though there are 3 clear safe lanes you can drive in, although not perfectly with the painted lines... *sigh* Roll with it, people. I'm guessing that's how a few of the cars flipped, somebody ran them out of the clear area and into the buildup on the side of the road.
I got a little more done tonight. I started putting the furnace
in, and realized almost too late, that I need to run new power wires to it, because the existing ones are now tied into the master light
switch I installed.
Since I was getting stupid, I gave up and went to the simple stuff.
Here's the lights
at night, plenty bright:
I found some duct tape that perfectly matches the upholstery, so I bought it. The tape trimming out the closet opening was pretty rotten, so I removed it and put this on. I also bought some self stick carpet squares and put them in.
I've scraped myself on the rough fiberglass edges on this, so I trimmed it out in duct tape, also.
For a few $$ in duct tape and carpet, it sure looks nicer. I think I'm going to do shelves in the closet, not sure that will happen before the trip, though.
