snow

I took yesterday as USRD. My standard 12-minute commute home took 1:20 - heavy snowfall started right as rush hour (well, VT rush hour) began, it came down thick, and holy smokes the roads were awful. I didn't see any accidents, but folks were sliding all over the place, myself included. I barely made it up the hill leaving work, slid all over the place getting to the interstate, and then almost slid into the left lane while on the interstate going 5 mph. Anyways, I was happy to get to my house in one piece, so wasn't going to travel the extra 1.5 miles to go to the gym.

I haven't needed snow tires for the last 2 winters, but after last night's commute, I'm forking over the cash and getting some this weekend.

Anyways, I digress.

Today is SRD due to work event tonight. Back at it tomorrow with a 14-miler on the treadmill at the gym. Need to get that in before our next storm hits (Saturday night through Monday, forecast for 6"-24"). OY.

Good morning Elizabeth. Qwe're getting some wintry weather here in Ky. as well but no real snow yet. I ran 21 on Sat and want to get out for 6-8 this morning but the wind is blowing so hard. Plus, it's 31°. after enough coffee, I'll bundle up and face it.
