Birdseye Frozen People

Despite 3 or so inches of snow, I got Pearl to Jim’s shop this morning with very little trouble. I wasn’t able to zip across town as I’m accustomed to but I’d left myself plenty of time this morning so that I wouldn’t even want to.

I got to Jim’s early enough to catch the bus before mine. It finally came – even later than my bus! So after standing outside in single-digit wndchills for more than 30 minutes, I’m a little frozen. And to top it all off, we have to take the long way – our old route – due to some offramp issues. And now that we’re on that route, they tell us it’s all clear to use the bridge again. D*MMIT!

So, I may never get to work today. I guess the good news is that it’s a holiday and the traffic that the old route dumps us into would be much worse if it wasn’t. I guess I get there when I get there.
