Opposite of happy

I will be taking my rolling cart to get my weekly market share tomorrow.  It's available for pickup from 12 noon until 6 p.m.  From there I will ride the trolley into the center of town — with my rolling cart — to pay my mortgage. Then I will board the bus to go home.

Normally this wouldn't bother me in the least. Just another Thursday with my usual errands. But it's going to start snowing this evening, around midnight, and continue snowing (heavily at times) until 12 noon tomorrow. And then it's going to turn to sleet and freezing rain for the rest of the day, with high gusting winds. They say we could get as much as 6 inches of snow before the change-over.

They're reporting pea-sized wind-driven sleet in South Carolina.

A sheet of freezing sleet on top of six inches of snow. High winds. And a rolling cart full of fresh produce, cheese, bread and eggs.

I am not looking forward to tomorrow.

End of story.


  1. I've been following the news coverage and it looks terrible. Stay safe and warm, Haworth.

    1. It is pretty awful, Perpetua! I left my office early, at the height of the storm, and was glad to get home. Right now it's an icy rain but will change back to snow overnight. Wishing you a lovely weekend!
