Ice, Ice Baby

We had another round of weird winter weather overnight.  Weird as in .. way different than what any of us grew up with.

T-storms and rain at midnight + warm southerly winds .. in February.

45F!  What the ??

I woke to an angry wind lashing the house and the sounds of ice pelting the windows.

Yep – over night it froze, schools closed and we are now hovering at 28F… and dropping.

With snow coming.

And more wind.

I fear today is just another commute to no-where.

But … still I must try.

So I’m taking a page out of Mom’s book.  The one she used to check us over with before we left for parts hockey games unknown.

I’ve got a full tank of gas, boots and a blanket in my SUV; my phone is charged and lunch is packed.

I just have to put my hands on that extra bit of nerve it takes to face roads like this!

I hope the roads you traverse today are safe and uneventful!

“Everyone talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it.”
– Mark Twain
