It sure looked like I could.
But a look across the street suggested otherwise.
I've seen cardboard placed on windshields to ward off ice before, but this is the first time I've seen a car wrapped in plastic.
And there were those telltale marks on the streets showing they'd been treated for an "Winter Weather Event."
By the time I neared Downtown even the sunrise was beginning to look a little sinister.
Around 1100CST I received an email announcing an early dismissal at noon. I was planning on having dinner with my friend Reuben after work. He'd already called and suggested if the Courts closed we could get together for lunch. I love it when a plan comes together.
Some scenes from the walk to the parking lot.
|Snow on the streets can get ugly really quickly.|
|The bunny looked happy to see the snow, but the bunny always looks happy.|
It was really good to spend some time with Reuben. I'm afraid people have to work to stay in my life and Reuben has been a trooper. I was really glad the storm merely modified our plans and didn't scuttle them.
I was pleased to see most cars had their lights on.
|Looking out the side windows on a day like today brings its own rewards.|
By the time I got home, it was obvious Winter was actually paying a visit.
I wasn't home long before Leo reminded me just why he likes snow days.
This morning a co-worker asked me if I rode my motorcycle. When I told I didn't she said, "I'm glad to see you're just crazy and not stupid."
