There’s snow coming!

It’s about 10 o’clock on Monday night, they say that there’s a snowstorm coming tonight, there’s a blizzard watch out just a few counties north of us. Snow started falling here, about 10 minutes ago, they’re predicting only 2 to 3 inches but the winds are supposed to be very strong.

I remember when I was little, it seemed that every snowstorm was huge, now it seems we only get ice and a few inches here and there, never enough to close work. I know if the weather was bad enough that I could call in to work no problem, but it seems like these days we never get enough snow to do that. I have a friend who is a teacher, it seems like every time we talk about the weather he talks about a two hour delay or even cancellation. I miss the schooldays, going to bed each night wondering if the new snowfall would allow me to sleep a few extra hours or even take the entire day off.

Alas, I now know each time I go to sleep that one way or another I have to go to work everyday, sometimes the weather can make me a little later than usual but I still have to go in. Days of dreaming of a two-hour delay a long gone for me. So now going to sleep, and hope that the roads aren’t too bad in the morning.

Professional Driver…

…on a closed course. I wanna be that guy. I want my entire job to consist of driving around in a brand new, maybe not even released, car and take it through water covered roads or through the outback. I want to be that guy who is crusing along at break-neck speeds weaving in and out of cones and then slamming on the breaks to miss the family of ducks walking across the road. Just thinking again…
