Winter Needs To Be Over, Right Now

So work let us out at 3 pm today, which is a little silly as the roads were already horrid and it took me an hour to drive 8 miles. I got home and managed to get in my drive way, but am now apparently stuck in the snow, or rather, on top of the snow with no movement except slipping towards the chain link fence happening. Not even when I rock it back and forth. So I threw a bunch of salt under the car and around the tires and shoveled as best I can, hoping that the trickle down theory of salt melting snow will melt the snow enough to help me get moving . Then I proceeded to go into the house, only to discover that the glass in my front screen door has broken. Loverly. I mean the only thing that would make this better is if the car is still stuck on Monday and I can't get out of the driveway. I mean, thank goodness I have bread and milk in the house and didn't promise to go to see the Vagina Monologues on campus tomorrow.

I mean seriously now. Winter needs to be over. Right now.

I'm with you GG. I've been asking all day if it's Good Friday or Christmas Eve. And to make it worse, my snow shoveling fairy didn't show up. Ugh.

Days like today make me so grateful I work out of my house. I had a 9am appointment and then came home and don't have to go anywhere til tomorrow night.

I'll think about shoveling tomorrow because as Scarlett O'Hara says "tomorrow is another day."

Bread and Milk? ... What about the beer?

P.S. There is less than two inches of snow here in the city.
