Snowed In.


I haven’t had a day off for awhile (excluding holiday’s), but got today off because of the weather. It is currently 22 degrees w/ some sun and lots of leftover snow piled on sheets of ice from last night’s blizzard. Driving home after work yesterday took a little over 2 hours– a trip that would normally take 30-45 minutes tops with traffic. It was icy, it was windy, it was snowy and it was a SLOW commute. People driving uphill got stuck, which caused the traffic. Luckily, I drive an SUV now so I was able to weave out of that easily I would probably either have been one of those stuck uphill or sitting in 3 or 4 hour traffic. I’m so glad to be in the comfort of my own home, safe and sound. Not looking forward to a La Nina winter!

My plans for my snow day consist of doing some work, studying and then going grocery shopping for Thanksgiving. Unless the snow melts, I won’t be driving anywhere! I live near a big grocery store, so I might brave it and walk. Ant & I went on a walk last night when the snow was still coming down, but that lasted less than 15 minutes. Too cold to handle!

Hoping everyone is warm inside whether at home or the office.
