I just got back from my sisters house... barely. The trip took me over three times as long as it usually does because it was snowing. I was pretty worried because my little Honda was sliding all over the place. Then I got stuck going up two very large hills and there was no way for me to backtrack without hitting another large hill. I really thought I was going to spend the night trapped in the woods. All I could think about was that the snowfall was not expected to let up until tomorrow night. Somehow I was able to fight and inch my way up them by using a grassy bank on the side of the road for traction but it wasn't easy. This was probably my worst experience driving in the snow but thankfully I made back safely and in one piece.

I'm off to bed now. Tomorrow I think I'll start planing to move to either Austin or San Diego. SCREW YOU SNOW!!! //shakes fist

Been a hard winter here in the Midwest. The three weeks following Christmas were nasty. Another 6 inches of snow today and another foot is forecast. I've shoveled more snow the last 6 weeks than I have in the last 5 years.

Glad you didn't have to spend a freezing night in the car. That would have sucked bigtime.

At least, this time, there wasn't any dead deers lurking on the road for you to bounce your little honda over. Think of how much more interesting that would have made the drive home.

Yeah, I live in Western PA, and my hour-long trip home from work turned into three and a half hours. There were a few Oh Sh!t moments coming home, but it was just mostly slow cruisin'.

I was planning on going to Ohio for Superbowl at the in-laws, but that has been canceled.

You know, I did think about that briefly on the ride home. No more Dukes of Hazard stunts for me.

Yeah, I'm over in Center Township, Beaver County, and my son and I have been shoveling the driveway for the past hour, and it's only 25% done. We have at least 18" of snow, and we are supposed to get another 6" today! Gahhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The view out my front door as of a half hour ago!

I dunno about Florida... It's been pretty cold down here. I actually had to turn the heat on in my car last night. Full blast, even! At least for the first couple of seconds. Brr.

(Glad you're okay, btw.)
