Another Challenging Drive to Work

We had quite a storm today.  It was actually thundering when it first hit the area.  It is unusal to get thunder in a snow storm, and if you do get it, it is only one or 2 thunders.  This time, it kept going and going.  I had trouble getting back to sleep.  When I got up, we had about 6 inches on the ground, and it was still snowing and blowing. 

So what did I do?  I went to work.  If we don't go to work, we don't get paid.  I only had a real problem getting out of the driveway.  I had to stop for traffic, and couldn't get going again.  So, I scraped out the snow under my tires and tried again.  It took about 5 attempts.  There was ice under the snow--it had rained first.  I fell once, but it was on snow, so I wasn't hurt.

I think it will stop in time for the roads to get cleaned up before I go home.  I am getting so tired of this.

I plan to go out to the barn and to my boyfriends for a movie this evening--depending on the weather.  I probably won't ride if the wind is as bad as they predict.  I had so much trouble with Cruiser spooking on Wednesday from the various arena noises, that I don't want to go through that again.  I will just lead him and lounge Cole.  Tomorrow morning should be better.

Hurry up spring!!!
