I wished for snow - and guess what? That saying that goes something like, "Be careful what you wish for..."? It's snowing!!! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Of course, I must be completely honest here - there's not quite enough to satisfy my Yankee upbringing.
This is a flurry; a dusting.
Yes, it's enough to make the roads slick and make people race to the store for various things they absolutely cannot live without, but I want SNOW, you know?
MK was nice enough to send me a picture of all the snow she has up in Canada - and it was so wonderful to dream about waking up one frosty morning to inches and inches of the white stuff covering every available surface... Now, that dream is nearly a reality, except the snow that is currently falling will not - cannot - last. That's just how it is in Tennessee.
But I'm most definitely appeased. It's not even 7AM and I'm at work!! See - I guess it must be because I learned how to drive in January in CT. Snow is not a big deal; ice, on the other hand, isn't fun. I was very careful driving in today and kept to well below the speed limit - just in case. I paid attention to what was going on ahead of me, just in case another driver hit a bad patch that I was headed for. I listened to the radio for traffic reports. I made sure my windshield and other windows were scraped off before I even got started. And, though my car has no heat (as I seem to not be able to say enough about) the drive was, thankfully, completely uneventful.
I arrived at my office in one piece.
I don't know if this is a testament to my Winter driving skills, or just sheer dumb luck - but I like to think it is my skill that got me here. (Hey, I can think whatever I want to think - it's MY blog! Tee hee!)
PS: For those friends who are reading this with whom I also work, pay no attention to the sign in the front yard!!!
