The bad thing about having someone else drive you to work is that you can't go home until they're ready to go home.
Here's the 10:30 a.m. traffic cam views of the roads we drive home on.
I don't know about you, but I think we should have left about an hour ago! Now if I could just convince my spousal unit of that.....
Watch for a post later today telling you we made it home safely....
UPDATE - We made it home from work without incident. Although the weather was still bad, it seemed like most of the sensible people had already gone home from work and the traffic was fairly light and we saw no accidents. It only took us about 7 minutes longer than usual from the time we left work till we drove through the snowdrift into our garage.
We're now in a blizzard warning until midnight. It seems like the snow has let up a little bit, but it's still blowing pretty hard. Here's a little video I took out the patio door. The flag across the highway is my wind gauge--you can barely see it through the snow, but it's whipped out pretty straight! I took the video with the door open so you could experience the sound of the wind blowing around the house and making all my chimes ring.
When I called Dad at lunchtime, he said they were getting sustained winds of 30 mph. Not sure what we've got going on here right now, but there have been some pretty good gusts rattling the house as I sit here posting this update.
There are lots of birdies here at feeders holding on for dear life to try and snatch a seed or two before the next gust blasts them back to shelter in the trees again. I sure am glad I have a nice warm house and don't have to try and survive outside.
And now for those of you who've had more then enough of winter, head on over to Mary's Corner of the World for some beautiful flowers and fruit trees in her sunny California backyard.
