We’ve got some snow on the ground over here. It’s actually been plaguing us all week, Monday’s drive into work was stressful and irritating. Then the weather people were starting to go all doom and gloom again, talking about the Winter Storm Watch and the Lake Effect Snow. It started yesterday and lasted all day. It’s actually not snowing now. From where I’m sitting it actually looks pretty on the trees, and the thick blanket of snow has been untouched near the woods, so it’s smooth, sparkely and pretty.
I worked late last night and that actually became an advantage. I started my car, and while that was defrosting and warming up, I brushed as much snow off my car as possible. Then I got in my car, said a prayer and headed out. Since it was way past rush hour, I didn’t have anyone riding my bumper, trying to get me to drive faster on the bad streets. I just listened to Dido and Beck on my CD adapter and drove carefully. A few huge SUVs did pass me, but that’s their story. A plow passed me too, but his shovel wasn’t down.
Once I was only minutes from home I felt energized and stopped at the store to pick up some milk, Triscuits, batteries and the Apatow movie “Knocked Up”. I looked for Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup ice cream again, but it wasn’t on the shelves. I’ll have to look elsewhere. But that could wait till the weekend. I headed on out, got home and it was so nice. I felt empowered enough to bag up all of the stinky garbage and take that out to the trash. Then I was completely done with chores for the night.
Wasn’t this an exciting post? :P
