Dramatic start to the week:

     A winter storm started moving in Monday morning, just in time for the annual March for Life at the capitol. Thankfully, the people organizing were paying attention, and for the second time this decade, the rally was held inside. That was a blessing, as it was hard to see with the wind blowing snow in people's eyes. Impossible to guess the turnout with everyone crammed around the rotunda on multiple levels, but it was more than I hoped--more schools than I expected as well.

     The rest of Monday brought the biggest storm since February of 2011. It was technically not a blizzard in my area, but there were many times when it sure looked like it! That led to marvels pleasant and unpleasant. For I think the third time in my 20 years working for my employer, they actually closed the building due to the weather. That meant I got out half an hour early!

     However, I should have just stayed at my desk, as I got to wait more than 2.5 hours for a bus that never showed up. My backup bus quit showing up as well, so I had to go for plan C eventually. Grateful I didn't have to shuffle/wade more than 1.5 miles home, that the bus got there safely as the highways were pretty empty after 7 pm, and hey, I only fell once! There was pale ice underneath the snow and impossible to see any of it in the dark. Got a good foot of snow in my area, just amazing! I LOVE big snowstorms, though I could have used a shorter commute and getting home earlier than 7:45!

     Today is a fun day. Because it's January 24, but it's also 24 days left to the 25th anniversary of first 'meeting' t'DoL! Whoo-hoo! I have been having fun with my prep-work, too!

How long was your walk that night? You must be thankful
that dose not happen often. So thankful you made it home okay.

Less than 1.5 miles, thankfully, though it certainly felt interminable! It was interesting hearing other people's stories afterward!
