Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow...

somewhere else.


It's been snowing here pretty much all afternoon and the wind isn't helping matters any. I can hardly wait to drive home tonight. That should be almost as fun as my drive in was this morning. I really hate the snow. I don't mind winter, I deal, as well as anyone, with the cold, but I could do without the icky white stuff mucking everything up.

That picture up there, that's just one of the main thoroughfares in my area. Nice, right? See why I can't wait to drive home?

Normally that trip takes approximately 20 minutes. Tonight I estimate doubling that travel time, maybe tripling, depending on how many of the drivers out there decide to be idiots. I got behind one this morning that thought doing 10 MPH was the smart thing to do. I understand slowing down when the weather is bad, but that was just ridiculous. You're just asking to have an accident that way.

My other peeve with the weather this time of year, having to clean off the car. I have a garage that sits behind my house and it is near to impossible to get the car into it. Consequently, I park in the driveway and the car gets covered with snow. So, I have to drag my ass outside in the frigid morning air most days from December to April, start the car so it gets close to warm by the time I leave and start brushing off the inches of accumulated snow and sometimes ice that encases my vehicle.

And I'm a bit OCD about it too. Ask my hub. I'm not lying.

I get every speck of snow off my car. I like to be able to see out all of my windows when I drive down the road. I also like to be able to see out my side view mirrors.

There are people, though, who find it perfectly acceptable to drive down the road without having cleared off the car at all.

And there are those who think the defroster will do the work for them.

And we wonder why there are so many accidents this time of year.

At least I don't have to worry about that tonight. I park in a garage where I work. I don't even have to leave my building to get to my car. Which is a good thing considering the wind has been howling all afternoon too.

Yay, winter's here. Whooo and hooo.

I am not amused.

I feel the same way.. stupid snow, stupid drivers. We got just a light dusting and high winds here in PA - enough to make it slick for the drive early this morning. Have a safe drive home!!
