It was actually yesterday I was telling Andy, how I wanted to go ice skating. I didn’t really want Mother Nature to grant the wish for me. When I got up this morning, noticed it had snowed a little overnight. But since it’s supposed to be super warm today (for winter), I thought it would just be slushy outside. WELL NOT SO MUCH! It was just starting to warm up outside as I was leaving, and I didn’t account for having to spend 20 minutes to scrape ice off my car windows. It was a super fun time trying to get down the steps to my car.


My driveway is a hill, so trying to get inside my car was another adventure. Not to mention I had to grab my ice scraper and somehow walk around my car to each window to get the ice off. At the same time, I’m trying not to fall on my ass and bust a hip. I also kept hearing ambulance sirens. I’m thinking, how bad is it out there?! Maybe I should have grabbed my phone and pre-dialed 9-1-1 in case I did take a nasty spill. I did what I could, and managed to make it back into my car without dying.

But next up, I had to figure out how to make it down my street. The road crews did a shit job salting my street, so it was like the ice capades…escapades? Thinkfully, once I got off my street, the roads got much better. Also, from the thirty minutes it takes for me to get to work, the temperature rose 20 whole degrees!

  1. So glad you didn’t fall or have a wreck. Ice is the worst! I too have a very hilly driveway and live on a rural road that is one of the last ones taken care of, so, when it snows, I do my best to just stay put until conditions improve.

    • Ice is the devil, for sure! I’m glad I didn’t fall either, haha 🙂
      it stinks you live in a rural area that doesn’t get priority during bad weather.

      • I don’t really mind my road not being a priority. I am retired, so most of my plans can be changed or cancelled. I don’t mind hibernating for a few days a year. The snow generally doesn’t last here for more than 3 or 4 days at a time.

  2. I was shocked at the level of melting. It was icy here, too, but by the end of the day it was all gone! Thank goodness!
