Snowy Seattle

I was all smiles as the snow was falling on a bustling Seattle city. I love snow, so much, but I'm starting to rethink our relationship as snow shuts down Seattle and for some reason makes people stupid. But then again maybe I'm the stupid one as this lady uses her umbrella to keep the snow off her, I'm practically rolling in it! All in preference I guess.
Speaking with my friends from the North, it sounds like my two hour commute home last night was a breeze. Tacy & Crew didn't get home till 7:30 (we get off at 4) and Megan who only lives in Ravenna got home at 7. Mindy didn't make it home at all - Told you the 6th ave inn was a cozy deal, huh Min?
I layered on the clothes like a good South Dakota girl knows how to do, and headed out into the snow this morning scoffing at those folk who "obviously don't know how to handle the snow". I quickly learned that two of our three major roads out of Des Moines were blocked off courtesy of the Des Moines Police via riding on the 121 till the roadblock at which point I got off the bus and walked to the nearest stop to catch the 122. The 122 then jack knifed with me and one other person on it when I decided this was stupid. I'm going home. I love my job, I really do wish I could be there to help out, but risking my life in Metro's hands just isnt' worth it.
So, tomorrow, I will wake at 4 am again, and head out into the cold to try to get to work, until then, I'm going back to bed.
Yay for snow?
