That was Craziness
On the left, snow at 2pm. On the right, snow at 5pm.
Where is my shiny new red Honda Fit?
Almost made it up the driveway!
And I probably would have made it all the way up if I hadn't had to foof it through the drifts across the bottom of the drive that blew across and closed it back up after I left.
Yesterday I thought, "I should probably put those snow shovels in the shed." But the weather forecasters said snow, so I waited.
This afternoon I realized we had library books and a movie that were due today. I really would rather have stayed at home. But oh, well, I had to find out how the new car drove in the snow eventually.
I thought I'd take the highway, since presumably that would be plowed. Wow. 30 miles per hour, slippery, and lots of other cars, including a few well off the shoulder or stuck in the median.
So on the way home, I took the side road. Not much better, but lots fewer cars.
The dark strip is a very deep drainage ditch. At one point, I did fish-tail in a very scary way, but I managed to steer out of it -- shiny red car was NOT going in the ditch!
So having done my one crazy thing for the day, I plan to stay home, knit, drink cocoa, and watch the snow snowing.
