Slip N Slide

I got up early today (shock) and thought I'd go see my Dad for a bit. I made it about 6 blocks and knew I had made a mistake. It was 17F with a humidity level of about 97%. I had no idea it was going to be THAT bad.

The cars on the road were slipping all over the place, one poor lady was turned around backwards and couldn't get any traction. I looked over at the freeway overpass, the cars were sitting still. About 6 blocks back the other way a gas tanker truck had turned over in front of Rick's parent's house.

I thought yeah right, I'm not going to mess with this.

Later on it got a little better and we were able to go out and do some shopping for the holidays and go to a birthday party for Rick's 7 year old nephew.

The crowds wore me out and I will be out in it again tomorrow. I never seeem to get my shopping done early like I keep promising myself!

Hope everyone has a great week.

Snowy and cold up here, too. I went to Wal Mart, and got confused, but I ended up with almost everything I'd gone for. But I've barely begun my Christmas shopping (not too much this year, though). I can say I've started my Christmas cards--but only because I've managed to get one sent so far! I'm always down to the wire, in spite of the best intentions, but it's getting to be a pretty bare wire this year!
