When I pulled into my driveway this morning after a Vanity Appointment visit with my friend Theresa at Hairy Notions, here is what I saw on my car dashboard.
Notable to me was the real-life temperature here in Syracuse, N.Y., a whopping 14 degrees. (The forecast for tomorrow lists a high of 2 and a low of minus-8.)
Also evident was the song playing on my Sirius/XM satellite radio The Highway station, country music man Joe Nichols singing “Sunny and 75.”
Ha. Good one.
Below is what it looked like going up my street in our city neighborhood of Eastwood.
And below is what it looked like going down the street. Yes, this is the direction I took going and coming home today. It only took one slippery trip the first year my dear wife Karen and I lived here for me to cross navigating our hill off my snow-route list.
I can’t even begin to count the times I’ve been outside shoveling my driveway only to see somebody sliding down that hill perilously close to parked cars, or getting stuck halfway trying to go up.
Do you change your driving routes for bad weather?
