Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your can't-win-for-losing doggie reporter

My ghostwriter is having her knee replacement surgery tomorrow. She planned to have it done in early December specifically so she would not have to drive to work and back in the rotten winter weather we have here in WNY.
She worked hard for the past two years, only taking vacation for two weeks when Dad had his knee replacement surgery last year. She volunteered to work the entire Thanksgiving weekend because she knew she wouldn't be back to work for the Christmas and New Year holidays. All this so she could avoid driving in the nasty winter weather for once! Well guess what?
Sunday morning, we were awakened by the sound of freezing rain hitting the windows. This is a very ominous sound because it brings to mind lengthy power outages, fallen trees, and multiple traffic accidents.
We nervously watched out the icy windows as the freezing rain turned to sleet, then ice pellets, and then snow. I didn't even want to stay out in this stuff for very long because it bounced off my nose and into my eyes.
All the entire morning, we never saw even one snow plow on our street! Ghostwriter was hoping it would stop before she had to drive to work at 3pm, but it didn't.
Is that a snow plow I hear? Nope. Can't they at least put some salt on the road? She finally headed out. She said she almost turned around because the road was so bad. But she persevered and made it to work. It finally stopped snowing for a while. But—surprise!—it started up again just in time for her shift to end! By the time she got home at midnight (after crawling along at 20mph!) our street had still not been plowed!
This morning it looked like this:
At least the road is finally cleared!
Ghostwriter called the hospital this afternoon and found out her surgery will be at 3:30pm tomorrow. She says that's good because then I won't have to wait at home alone for too long. My Jason human will come stay with me after he gets out of work.
Hopefully she'll be able to come home Wednesday.
But, hey! After that we can all sit around and binge-watch the rest of the winter!!!!
I suggest we all get a good night of sleep now.
Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving!
