Winter Hath Come

Some things really aren't better late than never.

Probably shouldn't complain too much as we had one heckuva pleasant December but today royally sucked.

Leaving the office to go to court early this afternoon I found the car encased in a layer of ice. Freezing rain continued throughout the 35 minute drive to the court, turning it into a 50 minute drive. Filing done, and heading back to the office and then the fun really began.

Between people driving too slow for conditions and those driving way too fast for conditions it was a mess.

Got caught in a nice bumper to bumper traffic jam that had a 8 lane road down to one lane in each direction due to a really impressive accident.

The salt truck was stuck behind the accident so finally getting past led to still more slow-to-no moving traffic.

It's still coming down in a mix of snow and freezing rain so it's gonna be a neat trick to get down the Driveway of Doom™ tomorrow.

Ah well, it's been a good run, but winter is now well and truly here.

Airplanes like cold, dense air.
The iced runways not so much.

PH: Yep it was something.

Jon: That they do, the performance has been pretty good. Not looking forward to any airplane ice capades.
