The snow bulldozer

Heard some noises outside. It was a guy clearing the snow from the driveway with a bulldozer. No shoveling for me.

Lots of snow.

We got about 4-5 inches from this storm. Lots of snow, then sleet, then more snow.

Bags of leaves

These kinds of bags are left out all over town. Not sure exactly where the leaves go once they get picked up.

Rubber mats for the car

Changed out my carpet mats for these rubber mats. This will come in very handy when the snow comes.

Target in the Northeast

You don't see sleds like this in the toys sections of a Southern California Target.

Beep! Beep!

Got some Road Runner brand salt to put down. Suppose to make the ice melt away. We'll see if it works.

Ice and leaves

Walking to the gym i spotted some leaves in what use to be puddles. The temperature dropped cause the water to freeze. Some very beautiful photos.

Frozen plant pot

The hydrangea pot didn't have any drainage. After it rained and the temperature dropped, ice started to form. I've brought the pot inside just to melt the ice and dry it out. Hopefully the hydrangea I brought on the road trip from California to Connecticut didn't die.

De-icer fluid for the windshield wipers

Suppose to melt the ice on the windshield. I think it also adds a layer to protect the windshield from gathering ice on it. We'll see how well this works.

Light snow then sleet

We woke up Yesterday morning to snow. It was very light but still made the black pavement gray. At night there was sleet. I guess that's rain that's really really cold. What happens is the ground gets wet and then freezes. This creates a layer of ice on everything. In order to walk, you gotta shuffle your feet because there is no traction. Valerie was driving and the car skid.

Light snow.

Ice on the car from the sleet.

Connecticut Post Mall

Bought a 4-in-1 Jacket. Basically a 2 layer jacket with the inside reversable. Also got a neck warmer and a hat with flaps for the ears. See below for all three.

Holiday lights are up at the mall.

Huge leaf

I know it's hard to tell in the photo, but this leaf is about 12 inches wide. It was the only colored leaf in the middle of all the dried brown ones.

Fixed LCD TV

My 17-inch's backlight inverter went out. So instead of buying a new $500 tv, I bought a new inverter for $80. I was able to take the monitor apart and replace the broken board. First time I've ever fixed a TV. Parts and info here.

Central Park Foliage

Central Park fall foliage. The park was absolutely beautiful. Most of the leaves in the park were yellow. Pictures never do justice, but hopefully this will give you a sense of what it's like.
