Adverse Weather Conditions

December 18, 2008

The weather caused the cancellation of dinner with my friends last night, and delayed the delivery of my new gadget by a day. Rats!

I was so looking forward to opening up that box tonight, but it’s probably for the best that it won’t be delivered until tomorrow. I’m pretty sure that there are more productive things I should be doing tonight that don’t include endlessly playing with a pretty new computer.

I’m glad the weather’s back to bright skies, though still frigidly-cold, because my friends up in the desert have been snowed in since yesterday. She scared me when she told me about their driving home from dinner. They were sliding all over the road, and had to help dig out three neighbors when they finally arrived at her sister’s house, as well as the ambulance and the fire truck that got stuck in a drift. They had to dig out a fire truck. That’s just wrong. And weird. And for all of you cold weather dwellers out there laughing at me, laugh away. A foot of snow + SoCal drivers who forget how to drive in rain = freaks me out.

    I am thanking the LORD that I moved away from SoCal right now!

    I loved the rain, but used to get so annoyed at the same time, because I knew everyone else would suddenly forget how to operate a motor vehicle and traffic would be insanity. I really just can’t imagine any of those drivers with frozen precipitation!

  2. I may not respect your “cold” complaints, but I don’t scoff at dangerous roads.

    That is really too bad. I’ve driven on scary dangerous roads a couple times, and really, I can’t think of anything worse.

    Sense: There have been times when the rain was so bad I couldn’t see through my windshield so I avoid driving in the rain as much as possible. It was a sudden downpour when I was on the freeway during the “rainy season” and someone had wrecked in the second lane – and LEFT the car there. I nearly flipped the car avoiding it, but I don’t know how everyone else avoided running into it.

    So snow in our area? Noooo buddy.

    SP: Heh, I knew I’d get no sympathy. But that’s ok, it’s the safety issue that gets me the most.
