Not as bad as the East Cost, but still *yuck*
Overnight we got slammed pretty hard from old man winter. I was driving in the beginning of this late yesterday afternoon and saw the aftermath of a very bad accident. Problem is people lose most of their common sense and patience when we get into this weather and on the roads. This is when you have to remember all the defensive driving lessons you were taught, or in short, look out for the other guy.
I got up this morning and saw we got all the snow we were promised. And I got out my shovel with the ergonomic handle, aka, the kinky shovel. I then got to work and yes, I did take breaks.
I did drive into Wooster to get Adam and bring him over for the day. After I got stuck twice, I regretted that move and I will have to get a new tire for the WIXYmobile on Monday.
Now as I put the finishing touches on this post, I am also watching the Budweiser Shootout. This reminds me that spring is just around the corner.
Hopefully we will have Margaret check in, as I have been hearing all day that the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. areas have been hit really hard.
