winter storm

Saturday, March 08, 2008

what a nightmare of a drive home - the snow that has fallen today is more than we've probably had in years and after a 12 hr shift getting my car out of the parking lot at work was just terrible - but i did it - and then getting home (some road plowed, some partially and some not a t all) was so scarey - the snow taking control of the tires and spinning through three lanes on the highway - luckily few were on the road and i was going 30/40km/hr so i made it home safe - fishtailing a few times - and then getting stuck - REALLY STUCH trying to get up the driveway - good god the snow was so deep it was too deep to drive over and i had to walk over the snow to loosen it - knee deep, literally - but my car is safe and sound in the garage and assuming the plows arrive i'll be able to get out for the drive into work tomorrow am - not thrilled that we spring forard tonight - lol - but i'll survie - only have an 8hr day tomorrow so that's a bonus - and they say the snow will stop around midnight so that's a blessing - the cravings to binge were pretty strong when i got home - the stress of the drive probably trigger it - but i ate my planned meal and feel satisfied and have made it through another day - thank you god!!! a true miracle - honestly!!! so off to bed - may you all get home thru this terrible storm, safe and sound - god bless...

    Great job - both on the food and (especially!) on the successful arrival home last night! I know how treacherous it was and what a strong will, steady hand and nerves of iron it took to accomplish it - so kudos to you and all the other drivers who braved and beat the storm last night! For those who had to abandon their cars and/or plans - I'm sorry. I hope today is better for you.
    I really like what the other person said - about not quitting and it being like fish-tailing down the highway! What a good analogy! Just keep on moving, sometimes slow, sometimes a little faster - and you get where you're going, right? I hope today is much easier on you both physically and mentally! A well earned, yet shorter sleep!

    Sorry you had to deal with such a terrible storm, and here I'm in Pensacola, Florida gripping about it being 32 degrees tonight and my son, ADAM is out at Catholic High's Prom.
    I bought 6 videos by Kathy Smith at the thrift store today for $1 each, so I'm going to try them. Can't quit. Just have to move along, like you fish-tailing down the highway.....kept on moving.
