I LOVE MY 4 WHEEL DRIVE.
Its days like this that I am so glad I have the 4 wheel drive. Yes, its somewhat of a gas guzzler. And yes, its not cheap otherwise to drive. But after driving in worse weather than we have had this week for more than 20 years with cars having varying degrees of bad tires, no heat, running on its last legs, I have no guilt driving a car that makes me feel safe in this kind of weather finally.
Lots of schools closed today. We really didn't get that much snow, but in trying to get around, and the time it would take cleaning up parking lots and roads, it really was better for everyone not to have the added traffic.
I left early, but even that didn't make much difference. And what did I see on the snowy, slush covered roads, but a bicyclist, right down the busiest street around! Crazy or dedicated, I don't know which. You wouldn't catch me doing that!
And I have learned my lesson from Saturday's frozen run. I will stay in for this week at least. Temperatures today were actually quite "balmy" at 20 degrees, but the snow depth would make getting around quickly not a possibility. I actually didn't see any runners out this morning. They probably were all shoveling!
