They're predicting some pretty nasty weather for later on today - snow and freezing rain and ultimately ice - everything that I absolutely hate to drive in despite of the fact that, as a New Englander, I've driven in all of it many times over. That doesn't mean I have to like it, though! Naturally this sort of weather never ever seems to hit us on my days off. Nope, it's another one of Murphy's Unwritten Laws that "Bad weather will always occur on days you don't have the option to stay home snuggled under a blanket eating popcorn and watching reruns of "Cold Case" on TNT." Or something like that!
The worst part is that this nasty inclement weather is supposed to come in later tonight and last through until the morning which means that I get to drive home in it at 11:00 p.m. tonight and then, after a mere eight hours, turn around and drive back to work in it at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. Add on the fact that I live on the side of two rather steep hills and it's enough to make a person think about calling a real estate agent to find someplace on lower ground or consider a complete career change and move to somewhere back in California! Of course, I have a pretty good deal where I'm living compared to the cost of other rentals in the area and I like my job so I guess I'm stuck for another winter in spite of my mumblings and grumblings to the contrary!
Oh well, it's that time of the year, isn't it? Let the bad weather driving games begin!
