That “light snow” that was announced yesterday grew up into a nice heavy blizzard, with a strong wind and all that crap. This morning my dear neighbours found themselves trapped in the building: a snow bank at the garage door kept everybody inside till ten AM. I had a very important meeting downtown and decided to take a bus. In normal circumstances the bus is more reliable than a car, because buses have a dedicated line at the bridge (oh yeah, I live across the bridge from the city). Well, not today.
I spent forty fabulous minutes at a bus stop. The bus didn’t come. Actually all the buses were passing by, empty, and didn’t stop. I have no idea why. When I realized that I have missed the meeting anyways, I gave up and got back home (charged the huge snow bank on the way and got my jeans soaking wet up to my knees). At home I found my husband who also failed to cross the river. He took a car and got hopelessly stuck in a traffic jam on the bridge.
So we made a cocoa with tiny marshmallow and spent today at home. I can’t believe that this winter thing has just started. I am already tired and fed up.
Oh yeah, this is exactly what it looks like!
