Snow Days

It's Tiara Day!! Join in by Photoshopping a tiara on your avatar for the day. Or, you know, actually put one on your head for a while. :)

Today it's only 18 degrees, F. It's also the first day of snow-that-stuck. This means the first day of driving to work in snow-that-stuck.

Think *adventure*. Creeping on ice-slick roads saturated with layers of oil from the summer. With a large percentage of drivers on the road who (a) have lost all memory of how to drive in this stuff and (b) haven't put their snow tires on yet. Navigating around all the unfortunates stuck on The Hill, honking and weaving and swearing and praying you won't be one of them.

This morning it was almost comedic that The Sorcerer's Apprentice came on at the moment I headed up the hill and finished just as I pulled in to work. So apropos.

(can anyone hear The Sorcerer's Apprentice and *not* think of Mickey and the brooms?)

(edited to add the link to the Fantasia version!

Anyway, I made it. And it's Friday. And downhill is MUCH easier. :)

I'm already humming to the tune of brooms carrying buckets of water.. and will probably be for the rest of the day. Gee, thanks! ;)

Wait. Snow? Already? Where are you? I guess we are spoiled here in GA. We where at 78F. Sorry, don;t mean to rub it in.... however, I do understand about the drivers. Folks down here become as you describe with a mere trickle of rain. It's idiotic.

I'm in Montana. We're famous for snow and cold, but not usually this early!!

I can't believe you guys have snow already. It kinda makes me wish we had snow already. BUT NOT REALLY. I will live vicariously through your snow until we are inundated with our own.
