Today I awoke to find most of the world around me covered in ice and snow.
I went out to warm up my truck and found it sealed up tighter than Fort
Knox, it took me 5 minutes to pry my way into the passenger side door! I
started the car and turned the defrosters on high, then when back inside
to finish getting ready for work. After over 30 minutes of warm up time I
returned to my vehicle to find that it was in virtually the same
condition I had left it. I scraped, well, more like chiseled, ice off of
it for 20 minutes and finally got it "drivable".
The roads on the way were horrible and traffic was virtually nil.
At a major intersection here in town where I would normally expect
to see 30-40 cars at 7:45 in the morning, there were only 7. The weather
reports say another 2-4 inches of snow throughout the day, so... I may
add more pictures if I take any good ones. For all pictures of the snow
today, visit my Flickr set
