It's All About The Snow

I live North of Atlanta.  In a lovely suburb, that is hilly and way out of the way.

I believe the Yankee's are claiming we only got a dusting.

But, I still have a few inches reincarnating as Ice Squared in my front yard.......

The Hubs, who is from a place where they get snow often, isn't phased by the stuff.

Even if he spent 16 hours stuck in traffic, trying to come home (not his fault).


Yeah, that shit can melt now.  I'm totally cool with it melting....

And Ike, concurs.

But that is all I am going to say about that.

Ok, not really.

I got stuck on a hill, about halfway up. 

My choices were to continue to slide, uncontrolled into a ditch. 

Or just keep my foot pressing hardcore onto the break, until someone with something could rescue me.

I totally called the Sheriff, and reported myself, along with about 20 other drivers......  I was not alone.

I texted The Hubs.

And then I sat my butt in the middle of a hill, with my hazards on.  My foot firmly on the break. And my head freaking out. 

It totally could have been worse.  I could have been in a ditch.  I was surrounded by ditches.  Deep ditches!

But I am totally OK with my neurosis and anxiety, that parking my behind on the middle of a hill and blocking traffic, until a dude with a doolie and tow strap showed up; was an awesome resolution!

What did I learn?

1.  Driving in snow freaks me out! 

2.  Next time, I should just keep my kids home and not attempt carpool.  NO PROBLEM!

3.  Not to rely on others to make decisions I can make myself!

4.  Do not feel shame in being freaked out and admitting to it.  Especially if you are blocking others from making the situation worse.  Eventually, someone with 4-wheel drive, a tow strap, and no fear will pull you out.

5.  There are AWESOME people in the world.

6.  If you live on my street, someone has wine and is willing to share......

7.  If I go to bed now, I still get to sleep in some!  Again!

Good Night!
