Dr Dani and I had a date this morning to go running. But mother nature had other ideas.
That major storm that hit the country's midsection with tornadoes on Christmas arrived on the East Coast today. Not tornadoes. But when I got up and dressed to go to the Y, it was cloudy. As I stepped outside, I had to turn around to get my keys. I normally run the 1 1/2 mile to the Y then run back. Today, by the time I had gotten dressed, the ice arrived. Pellets were bouncing everywhere.
By 30 minutes into my session, it was all snow. About an inch had fallen and I sent Dave home. Dr Dani came down around 10 to go or, with two inches of snow on the ground and changing over to a bitter 35º rain, not go running. "I'll just use the treadmill Dad." Good idea.
If it had stayed snow, I think I might have gone running. Of course if it had stayed snow we would have had about 18 inches of snow and running would be a problem tomorrow.
