Forced concentration

Goal: get hubby to work. First step: quit staring at the overnight sheet of icy snow and start cleaning the car glass. Second step: curse, talk my way down the road, feeling the ice, ignoring the guy behind. Grateful he stayed way way back. He seemed to think it time to meditate, too. Admired the guy standing on the side of the road, phone in hand, his car nose down in the ditch. Then kept on ooming and steering. Twenty miles an hour. Fog. Not quite above freezing. Got him to work. Stopped at dollar store as a way to wait out the fog. Found a back tire almost flat- breathed in more ooms cause we'd made it town on a flat while dancing on ice.

By the time I got up this morning the roads here were wet. Most of the snow we got last night has already melted.

That takes a great deal of talent. Of course perhaps a soft tire grips the road more.

I am glad your flat tire did not cause a wreck. You were very lucky.

@jstory07 Good to hear from you. And winter is not over.

I really feel sorry for anyone who feels that he has to go to work when the roads are icy. It doesn't seem fair, first of all, to have to take that chance of having a car crash or going in the ditch. Then, a person might not be able to get to work for more than one day, especially if the car was totaled or the person was injured.

I hear you @IreneVincent. I am opposed to buying a huge SUV. Plus I am not sold on the idea of such a vehicle being able to keep us safe.

@sallypup My son has an SUV and he used it during this last big snow storm. It came in handy, getting his wife to work. I just stayed home for the whole week.

@IreneVincent I want to borrow your son. He sounds like a handy person to have around.
