Last night it snowed, and while there wasn't a lot, it was that kind mixed with the cold temps that made all streets an ice slick. We had my sister, our best friend and her husband over for dinner to celebrate my sister's birthday; I felt like my mom asking everyone to text me when they got home but was glad they both did because they said the roads were horrific. And they still were this morning; I tried to get out, at 15 MPH I skidded through a stop sign near my home and went around the block and came back home. They had a 2-hour delay for Emerson's school and then changed their mind and closed completely. I waited until it was a bit warmer out to make a second go at driving into the city… and either my battery is bad or my starter. So Karl is off getting my car taken care of and I am working from home today. Karl captured these pics on my new Samsung camera (review to come) before we got in the car and realized it wouldn't go into Drive.
This is real-life cold weather fashion. Under my jeans are these leggings (and a review to come tomorrow!), on my waterproof sturdy boots with a nice lug sole are Yaktrax (because if you have to have three surgeries and almost 30 weeks in a cast because of slipping on black ice you do whatever you can to prevent it from happening again), and when you can't find your nice cashmere-lined leather gloves you just grab whatever you can find to protect your fingers in the cold!
