Snow Day!

Man, I can't remember the last time I missed work because of the weather.  We're in the middle of a blizzard at the moment.  Didn't seem that bad last night or even this morning.  Yah it was windy but the snow accumulation seemed negligible.  So, I got ready for work like normal, stepped outside into some bitter cold, started up a reluctant Fit, and headed up the street.  Some drifting but nothing like yesterday.  Got on the highway heading south and then found I couldn't see past my bumper.

That's not good.  But I rode it out.  It cleared up and I carried on.  And then another white out.  And another.  And then I was looking at a semi in my lane facing the wrong way and stuck in a giant drift that went up to its headlights.  Yah, that was enough.  I'd only gone a couple kilometers out of town and it was way more than I was willing to deal with for a job that I'm not overly fond of in the first place.

Turned around and headed back.  Enjoying the warmth and comfort of home.
