I'm being sarcastic about the "wonderland" thing, but it is getting decidedly wintry around here. It rained slushy ice pellets all day yesterday and we're expecting a big snowstorm later today.
I have to admit that I kind of like the snow when it's not actually storming. It's pretty when the sun shines on a clean expanse of white, glittery snow. However, I am not particularly fond of trying to drive to work when there's ice all over the roads.
I didn't have any trouble getting home from work last night, probably because I waited until after five o'clock to leave the office. I think the people who got nervous and left early probably encountered the most traffic and delays. By the time I left, most of the early birds were out of the way and I made it to the highway fairly quickly.
Because I probably won't be so lucky today, I bought the ingredients for minestrone to start in the crockpot for tonight's dinner. I also picked up a package of bacon in case we end up eating breakfast at home. If we're stuck here for lunch, well, I guess we'll find out whether the leftover Thanksgiving turkey is still good.
I'm going to go get the soup started and try to decide whether it's practical to try to get to the office today. Wish me luck!
Today's the final day of NaBloPoMo and it's been a lot of fun. The extra two days of posting per week weren't too big of a deal for me, and I really enjoyed reading all of the blogs I found in the randomizer. Thanks for putting this together, Mrs. Kennedy!
