Wasn't it just the other day I was saying I'm tired of Winter? Didn't I say it was the umpteenth time I have said it this year?
Well - you can make it umpteen and one now.
This pic was taken from my office. 11 floors up and yes, that is ice on the windows. The ice became worse before it finally melted.
Roads weren't touched (again). Almost every public office and school was closed (again). Five people showed up to the office - including myself.
Yes, I could have worked from home, but I had stuff that was office-related I really had to get done.
It was nice that my car has all-wheel drive. I hadn't had that before. Except for one major hill, going down it, I had little to no trouble on the roads, even though it was total anarchy out there. No lines to be seen - it was a frickin' free-for-all. For the most part, I led the way, so I was all good.
Oh, I should mention I cleared about 5" of snow before I left for work. Yes, another firing up of the snowblower at 06:30. I knew I wouldn't make it back into the drive when I got home from work - and oh, how true that would have been.
Upon my return 11 hours later, even though the snow had stopped hours before, I knew it was bad. A half a block from our house there was a mountain of snow so big, put there by plows, a front loader was trying to clean it up. I got home and still had to clear another 7" of snow.
Have I mentioned I'm tired of this? Because I am.
