Hubby sat up the night before, watching it snow and knows how I fear the ice, but did he wake and take me to work? Nope, never crossed his mind, too busy resting in the recliner/bed. So...as I clean my car windows, I left a nasty message in the snow on his truck. It melted before he woke up! I am not ashamed to admit, it felt good to write it, even if no one read it.
School is in session so I thought, okay, the roads are clear. Nope, just wishful dreaming. I'm doing well in my little front wheel drive, with my hands gripped to the steering wheel, still able to take pictures as I drive. Little did I know those patches of clear road were not clear at all. I was living in a fantasy...black ice! I drive a standard so just drove slow, lugged it down on the hills and kept the foot off the brakes.
Give me poison snakes, rabid dogs and wild horses...I can handle all that, but, never, ever, ever ask me to drive on snow or ice. Thank goodness it was only nine miles.
I have not looked out, no use, I must go, no matter what awaits me. I heard rumors of frozen fog for this morning. Thank God for the variety...and hubby sleeps, bless his heart!
