Slip Slidin' Away...
Lately, I feel as though I have seen more of my dentist than my husband. Yes, another emergency trip to the dentist this past Thursday after a piece of food got into Extraction #3 and it started healing over... causing my jaw to get infected.
According to what my dentist mentioned today, I was not far away from being in BIG TROUBLE. Not a good sign. However, after a trip to the local emergency room and IV antibiotics coursing through my veins, along with some antibiotic pills and a few Vicodin mixed in for good measure, all seems to be well.
So I am alive, and sitting here checking out other blogs when the house shook. Even the cats ran for cover. (underneath MY chair of course) My initial thought was that the furnace blew up. But considering I just paid a fortune for a way overdue cleaning and service plan I knew that wasn't the issue. My next concern was that the roof caved in upstairs. My roof is saltbox style, and metal, so with these warmer temperatures these past few days things have been warming up and moving. And sliding...
I quickly ran to the back porch and noticed that the huge icicles had fallen off the porch and that a HUGE ice piece had also come down. Last night, it was sliding off but seemed to stop mid way, the photo above will show you just how darn thick that ice was... now it's off, and I can walk around the kitchen without worrying that the roof is going to come down on me. (hubby had tried to get it off, but due to the extreme cold, it was frozen solid-and anything sharp on a metal roof is not a good thing)
Also, for your viewing pleasure check out the snow we had last week :) I can't even imagine what Spring rains and snow melt is going to do in the Northeast, but I am predicting lots of flooding :(
