Snow Happens

January 25, 2011

It started snowing at 5:30 pm this evening. At 11:40 pm the snow is still going strong. Looking at my list of things to accomplish for the next week  just for nursing school alone makes me realize how badly I need a snow day. It snowed last Thursday afternoon and schools were let our early. We were at clinicals and were not let out early so this is what happened:

Yup, that’s my car in the ditch not a minute from my house. UGH! Don’t worry, my car’s fine. I’m fine. Later I parked my car at the fire station that’s right off the highway, just in case I needed to go somewhere the next day I could walk to my car and drive on the cleared highway. They don’t clear my neighborhood even though it’s directly off the highway; waaaaayyy too steep and curvy. Friday came, school was called off but we don’t have classes on Fridays so….Something interesting did happen Saturday morning tho: a state trooper paid us a visit! Apparently he’d been driving past my “abandoned” car for a few days and just wanted to make sure I hadn’t been abducted! He got our information off of my license plate number and came knocking on our door! Really nice guy. I apologized for causing concern and he was cool with it.

Anyhoo, tomorrow would be our first real snow day. I know it’s not something I should pray for but here’s hoping I’ll be home tomorrow morning instead of at school!

    The sucky thing about work is there are no snow days! Boo, it just snows and I still have to go.

    Glad you and your car are okay!

    Yikes, that looks scary. My car just slid about a foot yesterday when I was pulling into my driveway, and that was scary enough! I’m glad you’re okay, and I hope you got your snow day!

    I remember those good old days…And then I remember why I left the snowy state all together.

    Glad you and the car are okay!!
