Egads! I took Michelle to college today and as we were going along, the snow, which had just begun, began coming down harder and harder! After dropping Michelle off, I went to WalMart for a few minutes, then decided to go to the City Pier.
I giggled out loud as I noted two huge trucks parked roadside, with new toys boats for he 2010 boating season. (Not looking so probable at the moment!!!)
Once I got back on the roads to drive home, conditions degraded as I drove!
This is the road I turned on to head up our hill!
I have to admit that I was ready to bend down and kiss the ground upon arriving safely home! I haven’t driven in such poor conditions in years! Since the snow came so rapidly, the plows weren’t really able to clean the roads fast enough!
Yesterday, I was thinking about how unusual it is that we had no snow! Just a couple of days ago, we had rain, rain, and more rain! Now, the weather forecast is calling for blasts of Arctic air and snow.
When I got home, the snow stopped after awhile and the sun even poked out. I got to thinking the worst was now behind us. Then, as I began writing this entry, this….
Oh, hibernation sounds sooo enticing right now. But realistically, our Michelle is sixteen miles from home, and someone will have to pick her up in a few hours!
