When I woke up and saw the snow I felt like throwing up... seriously it hit me with a wave of anxiety. Luckily the kids had a delayed day, so I had time to pull myself together before I hit the road with all the crazy people here who don't have 4 wheel drive and slip and slide all over the road. I'll give this place this much, they may not get the amount of snow we got in Montana but due to the ever changing temperature the roads get very slick. So in that aspect it's a little worse because you have yucky roads and people that really don't know how to drive on them. I have a hard time looking at the beauty of the snow, all I see is the dangers of it, I think it's left over anxiety from worrying about moving in bad weather for weeks. It's an anxiety hangover! Now I have the pleasure of going and getting groceries, but I'm counting on the fact that by 1:00 the roads will be clearer and it won't be as big of a deal.... that or I can just stay home for the rest of my life... become a shut in to avoid the dangers of the world... did I mention I really don't like snow, even in small doses. Alas, Kasey really wants to go out side and play in it, and I told her we could, so I will safely on foot venture out just for her.
