But hey, after last year – what’s a little snow?
Every thing started fine. The roads weren’t all that bad and even though it was taking longer than usual, no big deal.
And then I turned off a side road onto a main road … and traffic stopped. By this time it was 8:00 (I was supposed to be at work), but I don’t think anyone cared – in fact, I think everyone around me was supposed to be at work, too. Right after I turned onto the road, a police car blocked the entrance – guiding everyone else to take another route. Somewhere there had been an accident and we (me and the other cars)were totally blocked in.
So we sat. At 8:15, I finally turned off the car. I watched the guy in front of me get out of his car and walk to the nearby McDonalds. I e-mailed my kids.
They e-mailed me back.
Jeff sent me a picture of summer. Then he sent me another picture of him sitting at his computer working – in his warm house.
At 8:20, I put a status on FaceBook.
(Actually, technology is unbelievable – that I could e-mail my kids, update FaceBook AND receive photos from Jeff – all while sitting in my car on the road … waiting.)
I sat. I thought about work. Then I decided to be thankful and thanked the Lord I was sitting and not actually IN the accident.
At 8:40, traffic finally started moving again.
I was on my way.
Ok, two-hour trip to work.
I’m done with snowy roads. Is it spring yet?
(Actually I like snow – on Saturdays.)
