We will start off today normally with the mystery photo and then see if the rest of the day unfolds the same way. Yesterday was abnormal, although some might consider it normal for the nasty winter we have been having.
I got up yesterday at my usual time, only to find out that the school buses were cancelled once again! Looking out the window, it didn’t look overly icky, so both Mike and I started our vehicles to let them warm up as we were also under a wind chill warning. Then one of my coworkers called to tell me that I should stay put because she was on the highway and almost hit someone because the blowing snow was so bad that she couldn’t see much further than the front of her car. Mike also started down the highway and then called me to tell me that it should have been closed.
Wonderful, I thought. I can stay home and feed my reading addiction :). So, I settled on the couch, keeping an eye on the regular Facebook updates about the roads. After about an hour, everything was totally calm outside, so I decided to head to work. Silly me had forgotten how snow squalls work around here – they come and go! I did get some work done, but by 2:30 the snow and winds had picked up again and many roads were closed, including the highway I take home. There had also been a horrible 96 car pileup about an hour away and other smaller accidents in the area. So, I packed up early and headed home up a backroad, so that I didn’t have to suffer my worst nightmare – getting snowed in at work. It was a horrendous drive home with my 4-way flashers on the entire way, but I made it safely thank goodness.
So far this morning, it looks like clear skies. Let’s hope it continues on as a normal Friday because I’ve had enough white knuckle drives for this year. Time to exercise your brains and give me some awesome guesses for the mystery photo. Ok, ready, set, go…..
