Hey Look! It Snowed!



People that actually know me know how much I love snow. 0.

I love snow 0.

If I was going to go sledding, or build a snowman, or fort, or something cool… I would temporarily love the heck out of snow.

So yesterday it started snowing BIG huge snowflakes. And somehow I managed to inhale a few of them up my nose.

The worst part about snow is the driving. I don't mind driving in snow that much, but EVERY year people forget how to do it. I drove past 3 cars that were off in the ditch, probably 10-15 police cars, 1 fire engine, and 2 rescue squad vehicles. There was less than an inch of snow on the ground. Yeah, it was slick, but.. wow. After a week of having snow on the ground, these people will be back to speeding along right behind me, but somehow the first time they see snow, they instantly become suicidal lemmings and try to follow each other of a cliff.

I end my little rant with a picture of my car with snow on it.
My car... with snow

    is that car in the lower-left of the photo a lemming? It looks like it's about to go over the cliff.

    Snow brings out the best and worst of humanity.

    I am always amazed by all the cars in the ditch.

    What happened?

    Are there that many insane drivers out there, and only when the road becomes a frictionless surface does their insanity rear its head and become apparent?

    crocs! I always thought those things were a weird combination of stupid and ugly. And there's another level of "appeal" when those things get old and dirty. ugh.

    huh. crocs makes shoes that aren't giant, clunky, bulbous and cartoonish. I knew crocs only for their plasticy giant fluorescent dumbo shoes.

    Me too!

    But.. the only thing keeping me from buying a pair of THOSE is that I'm not sure how their sizes run.
