When it Snows, Everyone Slows... down in traffic.

Today, I had a very slushy, slippery, commute into New York City. It seems that almost every time it snows, no one is prepared in my town... what's up with that? The streets weren't fully plowed, commuters still didn't leave earlier, and it seemed like we were hit with a blizzard, when in fact we only got 2 to 4 inches of snow/slush.

Well, it took awhile for me to get to my town's bus terminal. Usually it takes about 10 to 15 minutes from my house; but today it took about an hour. Everyone was at a slow crawl of about 25 miles per hour on the roads... which in a way is nice for a change.

I just tuned the radio station to "Lite FM", and inched along in my car, almost falling asleep at some intervals. Not a good thing.

Anyway, here's a view from my office showcasing the wet, dripping, nastiness outside.

I'm glad that I'm finally dry, but wish I would have worked from home. Kudos to all the smarter people who did work from home!
