Snow Bonanza | Day 2

15 Dec

Around 10:30am I started to lose it. I was so anxious even watching episodes of one of my favorite shows on DVD couldn’t keep my full attention so I unloaded the dishwasher and took my mail to the mailbox – which if you read my last post was all that I had to do on my official list. 

After both those strenuous tasks were completed I bundled up in as many layers as I could without looking like some sort of rotund oompa loompa and hit the streets. Once I successfully made it down my hill driveway – which for the record is all compacted ice and snow and very steep – I took this photo for evidence that I am in fact legitimately stranded up top:

At the bottom of the hill right around that sharp bend there is a median and then pretty much a line on both sides of the street for the next 1/4 of a mile of either cars that have been down there since pre-snowfall or have been left down there by my neighbors as they hiked back up the hill. The streets leading to my nearest freeway on-ramps were all packed snow and ice with some light gravel nearing the actual on-ramps. 

 I successfully made it out of my complex to a nearby coffee shop for a seasonal indulgence of a beverage, some interaction with other people so I don’t become stir crazy and start talking to my stuffed animal dog and then I made it safely back to my complex – a round trip of about 1.5 miles without falling down! Yay!

The rest of my day consisted of mostly vegging out, more sweats and DVD watching. Tomorrow I will actually venture into downtown although I don’t think it’s safe to be driving and I am too freaked out of the idea of hitting someone else with my car or being hit so I am going to walk the 1 mile to the bus stop and then spend the next hour or so getting into work on city transportation – should be an adventure. 

Here’s some pics of snow accumulation on my car and one piece of evidence of my trip into the elements!
