Well...my pop was an MD and I learned from him many years ago that hydrogen peroxide is worthless as a disinfectant. Good old rubbing alcohol is probably the most easily used and effective thing to use on a wound....and then protect it with a sterile bandaid or something similar. Yep....the alcohol stings a bit.....big deal. Better than an infection.
We finally broke the 20 degree barrier early this morning. Had a low of 19.5 degrees on the north side of the house. The sky cleared off after midnight and it got colder quickly. Right now...11:16 AM....it is only 28.9 deg. We've had no snow yet. I, for one, don't miss it although I know it is important source of subsoil water for next spring's growing season. Just don't like shoveling and can't justify expense of a snow blower. We have a small electric one. That was a waste of money. Good old, push shovel is faster.
Someone sent me a power point presentation of snow in Russia. Geeeezzz! If I knew how to stick it on here I would. Why anyone would want to live the the northern parts of that country is completely beyond me.
