The snow that was forecast for today seems to be rolling in, although it’s still in the form of flurries at the moment. I’ll have to say, I’m sure getting tired of winter and am sorry that the weatherman seems to be right, more often than not. Hope it holds off on any big stuff since I have to travel this evening. I’m not a big fan of driving in this. I have a pet peeve about driving on I-70 or any other major roadway when the weather’s bad because the semis all around me just make it worse. Even when the snow is just a flurry, it seems to reach near blizzard proportions when a big semi passes you at 70 m.p.h.!
Speaking of showers, I just had a lovely lunch with my female siblings. The purpose: planning 4 bridal showers in the coming months. We never do anything small in our family. We should have known years ago when all of our children seemed to be born in mass quantities (some of them were even kicking out sets of twins) that the time would come when all of the other events would be done in bulk, too. I have another sister in the same boat that I am this year: two weddings. Poor thing, both of hers are girls! So, lunch was filled with talk of wedding plans, bridal shower plans and invitations, dates and locations and so forth. It seems just yesterday that some of us around that table were young and planning our own weddings. My, how time flies when you’re busy living life and getting gray hair!
So, like to share your pet peeves about driving in the snow? I’m all eyes and ears!
Addendum: It’s 5:30 p.m. and no longer flurries. It’s wet, snowing hard and abominably cold outside. Not looking forward to the drive. 😦
