June 1, 2009
I love June 1. Then you know you have 3 perfect months in front of you.
Today is a pretty day, sun is out on our few inches of snow. I thought I would drive the hour over the hills and say hello to my mom and dad and get some of her pumpkin bread. Set out north in sun and clear roads. 7 miles ahead, snow is blowing and drifting and the roads are covered and at the stop sign in Maclean, although I slowed, I slid through the stop sign but managed to steer away from the oncoming van. Off the road. I am OK, the car is OK. The side of the road there was flat, and so I turned around and came home and called my mom to cancel, and it has been snowing hard there all day. STILL nice and sunny here, they had a fresh 7 inches this morning, 8 more inches expected, we may get up to ONE inch later. That is the difference getting a little closer to Lake Ontario and a little higher into the hills makes.
You could say I hate January and winter, but I don't. I HATE DRIVING IN WINTER WEATHER.
You can see Penny here walking along our road in the sunshine.
