Try to remember when deep in December, then follow...

Sunday, December 16, 2012

We are having frightfully strange weather this year. I live in Minnesota and last weekend we had 10 to 12 inches of snow with deplorable driving condition for most of the past week due to the fact that we got ice and chunky road surfaces covered by snow and the salt and brine mixtures didn't work cause it got so cold right after the storm.

Now this weekend the roads were better and we even had rain that helped the roads but it doesn't look like a white christmas. Today it is getting colder again after the rain and the road conditions are so bad I am afraid to go out today. Again, we have slick, icy roads.

So I am "trying to remember the summer weather" and hopefully the weather gods will be merciful so there are not so many accidents. Counting non-injury accidents there were over 1000 incidents on the roads last week. And, of course, all those fenderbenders (some worse and some not so bad) added to the traffic congestion.

Would love to take some time off this week until the weather settles down but have a backroads way to get to work so I won't have to go on the highways or freeways. I am looking forward to Christmas week and New Years week as our office will be open only 3 days each of those weeks.

In the words of a Monty Python tune, "Always look at the bright side of life." Ta-da!!!

    yep, December and Minnesota means icy roads usually, but you have the spirit, and know that the violets will be blooming in a few months
