Yes, the weather in Northern Ohio is just wonderful. On Monday it was 60 degrees, the sun was shining. The ice storm started yesterday.. I managed to make it home from work and cast my vote in the primaries. By the time I got home, it was really working up to a good evening. Then the snow started.. I got up at 5am for work, went out and it took 45 minutes to scrape the ice off of my car. In case you are wondering, there is a wood shop in my garage. I sometimes balance if I want handmade hardwood furniture, and cabinets/floors in my house with those few days out of the year there are weather incidents. This was one of those days that I wish I had a garage.
Anyway, I called work and told them I would be late because I just finished chiseling the ice off of my car. That was until I started out of the driveway and got stuck at the end. Two hours later.. we got the driveway clear, my husband pulled my car out of the ice hole I was in. I was cold, wet, I had to go back inside and get dry clothes on.. I decided I was just going to stay home. It is the first time I've called off in two years I think. I just decided that it wasn't worth it this time. It's not like the work won't be there when I get back.
So I am going to spend the rest of the day in my sewing room.. warm and dry. Springs coming.. yeah right..
