    Just like now...3:00 am waking up due to doing it all winter for snow check. I hate it.

    How do you get out of that and sleep through the night ?

    Usually takes me a couple months before I am back to sleeping all night on a regular basis. Funny how your body gets. I checked last night on this rain moving in and figured it wouldn't amount to any slick spots but just like clock work I am up at 4 to check. No alarm clock required

    Are you doing site checks or just looking out the window? If I only look out the window I can go back to sleep pretty quick. If I have to go outside to see if it's icy or I stay up for more then 10 minutes I might as well just get up for the day. I can get a lot of paperwork done at 4am when the house is quiet.

    At your age I'm sure you have to get up and pee a couple times a night anyways.

    What's you talking about, Willis ????

    Last night, after 4 beers, and just as many glasses of water, I thought I wasn't getting any sleep. I think it's time to weld up a bracket to hold me up over the toilet, so I can sleep, wake up to pee, and just wizz till I'm cleaned out, then immediately go back to sleep...

    This walking from the bedroom to the toilet 4 to 5 times a night after drinking is just getting old.


    Are you wearing diapers GV ? Time for a visit to the Urologist :D

    I wake up when the pager goes off.

    I wake up when my wife kicks me because I'm snoring.

    I do NOT wake up worrying about plowing.
