It doesn't matter how much warning we were given on the news, it was still a shock to my system this morning to look out the window and see white. Lots of white. Argh. Snow everywhere. I am never mentally, physically or emotionally prepared for that first day that signals that all life has ended until next spring. Which appears years away at the moment.
Why is it that when you walk outside in the stuff, it always seems like much more has fallen then they declare on the radio? 5 centimeters in meteorological terms translates to 10 centimeters in RL? Or just where I'm walking? Grrr.
Fortunately, I live in a condo now and don't have the hassle of having to shovel the snow or clearing it off my car. It does look nice from my window. Frosty trees and all those cars trying to inch through traffic. Oh wait, I have to be out there soon too... Why oh why didn't I ask if I could work from home today?
Yes, I'm a wimp when it comes to weather. Seriously though, it wasn't that bad this morning. The drive in only took an extra 10 minutes. I got in safely to work and didn't see any accidents on the road. A lot of desks are empty. So either they are still stuck in the winter traffic or they were the smart ones that did ask to work from home today!
Not sure how my mood will affect my writing today...I'm in a very strange mood.
