winter, huh?

I realize that everyone has an off day at work from time to time, but the weather people around here missed one. We were suppose to have a dusting over the course of a few hours.  Try several inches right during the morning commute.  I realize that we won't get much sympathy from anyone living in an area that has had record snowfall amounts during September, but this has been the first decent snowfall on a weekday this year.

A little over a week ago, we washed cars outside and it was warm.

Why yes, that is a new vehicle now that you mention it.  And on a day like today, it came in handy.  I drove Rhiannon's car and she took the new all-wheel drive vehicle with the snow mode.  Considering I passed a few cars stuck on an uphill stoplight on my way to work this morning and the traction control system in the Mazda was blinking, it's nice to have the option.
