Yesterday's predicted snow (from a dusting on one channel to up to two inches on another), turned out to be quite a blizzard. It was coming down quite heavily and had been for a couple of hours, so about three yesterday afternoon, I told the owner I was going to get home before dark rather than try and drive in the white crap at that time. So, I packed up my briefcase and set off, in my own little car, as I have been driving it, rather than something off the lot. I didn't make it a mile down the road before I was stuck twice! TWICE! My car is front wheel drive with traction control, and the snow was deep but it had been plowed off the highway...it was just the funniest snow I have ever tried to drive in. I would turn the wheel of my car, but my car would not turn, at least not right away, and both times I managed to get stuck, I would veer off into a pile of plowed snow on the side of the road. I was so irritated. I am by no means a new driver in snow and I couldn't understand what the hell...I did manage to get unstuck okay, although I hurt the hell out of my neck doing so, but I turned around, went back to the dealership, got H and and four wheel drive, and we both took off for home. On the way, we saw several others who had issues, in ditches...stuck, the whole deal. On the news later, they did manage to say that travel was not recommended...I thought that was helpful. teehee
Needless to say, this morning my neck hurts like a you know what, and I know it's from trying to see all around me rocking my car out of those snow piles. It has been hurting anyway, but that sure didn't help. I believe I was just telling you all yesterday how much I hate winter, and here I am...why do I live in this place? We ended up with about six or seven new inches of the stuff, and we had just gotten rid of the long-frozen, dirty looking, foot or so that had been on the ground for the past month. Oh joy.
CrazyDog thinks its all pretty great, though. She has enough hair on her that she can't feel the snow or cold, and she gets out in it and rolls around and acts like a puppy again. It's deep enough now that she sinks all the way up to her tummy and she's having trouble walking in it..pretty funny to watch.
It's Friday again, another week has gone by. I have made some progress at work but not enough to please me. I just may spend my Sunday at the garage this weekend, all alone, actually getting some work done. When I am there during the week, everyone needs something, the phone rings every second, no one can make a decision without my input, owner needs everything from me, it's complete chaos all the time. I do believe I will work from here tomorrow, and go in on Sunday. It will be the only way.
I hope that all of you have good Friday's---that is generally a great day for everyone. I really think tonight will be the night I get out of the house and do something, whether I feel like it or not. I think we will meet a kid or two for dinner, I'm not sure about that yet, and take it from there. I will catch you all later!
