Let it Snow, Let it Sleet, Let it Rain...

Our first winter storm of the season is upon us. Last night little spits of rain and sleet were coming down but this morning it was loud spits of sleet. The wind is blowing something fierce and its blistery cold! I toyed with the idea of whether to try to make it to work or not. My favorite weather guy and the OHP were all over the tv telling people to stay home and not to get out on the roads. After a few phone calls, I decided to try to make it to the office, but leave about an hour later... so hopefully the typical morning traffic would already be at work - if they were even going to work.

I made it without mishap - some other misfortunate people did not. I saw a few semi's, cars and trucks off the side of the highway. From what I hear, its supposed to get really bad this afternoon. We'll see how long I stick it out here.

What I saw when I opened the door this morning.... ice.

I'm all set to tell you how crappy winter weather is and how, driving home in the freezing rain last night, I know what you're going through and then I see Bone's comment.

All I have to say is this: only someone who lives in the south would say something like that. :P

Actually, I like snow, I just hate the rest of it.

Drive safely home! There are always some whackos out there to watch for! ;)

Bone: we're predicted to get 5-8 inches of snow this afternoon. we'll see. It will be bad tomorrow because first we got ice, they salted that to get it to melt, then we got snow, they salted that.... and its only about 20 degrees so its all freezing again. Tomorrow will be nice and slick. Come over!

TC: I'll be careful.... but it is the other people that i worry about!

EXACTLY! That was my point... carefully avoid the crazy drivers! :)
