Today I've got a personal bitch, and it has made me say "WTF?" a few different times today.
All last night the news forecasters were talking about the weather front that is coming in, and how bad of a snowstorm we're going to be getting.
Now realize that this ISN'T the midwest. People here start to really freak out when they see the white stuff fall from the sky. Rain, fine. Sleet? I can deal.
Soft fluffly snow?
Lemme outta here!
Thus, we've gotten about 2 1/2 inches of snow so far. Not much, but enough that I've personally seen three wrecks since it started falling.
Now the warehouse I work at isn't in a busy area. We're one of only five buildings in the surrounding area, and two of them are residences.
Tonight is the night for our Christmas dinner here at work, so not only am I getting to sit here and watch the snow pile up, but I get to wait until after dark for it to freeze solid before I climb into my car and try to drive home.
Now, I'm not worried about _MY_ driving in the snow.
What really freaks me out are all of the other insane drivers..
You know who I'm talking about.
The folks who drive like there's nothing on the roads, and then you see them wrapped around the highway median a few miles further because of some ice..
Or the idiot who's driving 10 miles an hour down the center of traffic, and weaving side to side in order to keep everyone else from "throwing crap" onto his windshield.
Or the trucker who's on the far right, but swapping lanes with no signal, and shoving other cars left and right as he tries to make his shipping timetable.
Yes, I get to deal with all of these, and a few more....
The worst part?
It was completely clear when I came to work this morning.
Now I'm just kind of curious how bad it is at home, and whether I should take a personal day off tomorrow!
