SNOW! (And I'm feeling better today).

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I live in an area of Virginia where we don't really get all that much snow in the winter. My county as a whole, is quite large & has a lot of back roads that are winding. If our transportation department can't keep up with the weather, these back roads can be quite treacherous. Our school systems close at the drop of a hat.

So the above cartoon clearly depicts what it's like to try & drive with these yahoos when it snows. I really don't like to go out in it. I'm perfectly fine to drive in it -- my car is all wheel drive, but the moron drivers -- they crawl out of the wood work. emoticon For some reason, they think they can still drive 90 miles an hour in it. emoticon I'd just rather not be out there with them.

I'm feeling better today, as opposed to being a little down yesterday. I think it was because I hadn't made it to the gym. Monday was a federal holiday & hubby & I stayed in our jammies & got our tax stuff together.

Tuesday, I had planned to go to the gym, but traffic was so bad that it took a lot longer to get home than we had planned. (I can't exercise that late because then I can't sleep). I'm glad I got a walk in on my lunch break, but I'm used to that heart pumping feel-the-burn kind of workout & I really missed it. I did get some light therapy yesterday (I have a special lamp at my desk) & I increased my Vitamin D for the day (my doctor has me on a Vitamin D regimen on a regular basis) & I made it to the gym last night. It was pure bliss!! emoticon Such a mood booster.

My carpool has just decided not to go in today. Reports are that it's quite slippery under the snow. Three accidents on our main highway. Fun day at home for me today!!! Yay!!

Where ever you are, whatever you are doing today, I hope you have a truly wonderful day!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    SNOW DAY!!!!!! Double yay. Are you sure it wasn't the taxes and not the missed workout? LOL

    Have you read the book "The Wettest County in The World"? They based a movie on it about the bootlegging history in Virginia. It was good.

    If its any consolation we have those same crazy drivers and I live in Wisconsin were snow is a common occurrence in winter. I love the cartoon. Snow days are the best days. Glad you're able to enjoy them.

    If I didn't know better I would think we live in the same county. I'm in New Kent and people get crazy on the highway. We got a light dusting last night, sure hope we don't get any tomorrow either.

    Love that forecast!

    emoticon Your comic about Virginian drivers could be adapted for a few other areas as well.

    Love your weather forecast poster! How awesome is that?! Glad your feeling better today, enjoy your snow day! When it snows here (which is often) the first few snows people are pretty cautious, it's after a few storms that they get aggressive. They think that because they have a four wheel drive they can go anywhere, and while that is true, the problem is they still can't STOP and that's a huge issue! Have a great day!

    Now that is a forecast I could have everyday.

    AS for the snow, most people don't have the proper tires to drive in it. And like you said, many drivers drive faster than the conditions call for.

    Wow. People sure don't know how to drive. Its the same here in the rain. The same people day after day. There's a stretch of the freeway that tends to flood a little and it never fails that some idiot loses control hitting that spot. The newly installed guardrails have been patched up too many times to count in the last year. Pathetic. Enjoy your day and avoid those idiots.

    Good luck avoiding the loony tunes in their cars! Enjoy your day. So happy you are feeling better.
