It turns out that it does snow a good bit here in the Midwest winters. I just was unaware because this is only the third year I have been of driving age while living here. 🙂 See, once I was able to drive I was heading off to college far enough South that the weather patterns changed and then I moved to the Mid Atlantic where even President Obama is surprised by their reaction to snow. For example, it might flurry tomorrow, Fairfax and Arlington county schools close before bedtime. Now that I am back in the Midwest I guess it’s time for me to learn how to drive in the snow again.
In other amusing snow related news, we had a good bit of ice mixed in with our snow last night. So when the boy was getting ready to leave for work this morning he had a thick layer of ice staring at him from his truck. I poked my head out the door and told him to just take my car since it lives in the garage and was completely clean. A good idea for not being late to work, however the snow that fell while he was at work made it a little tricksy for him to get in the driveway when he came home. 🙂 My car has a low (ish) ground clearance. Ahh well. You can’t win ’em all.
I hope your winter is treating you well.
