i had an appointment in parma heights so i decided to save some gas. of course, when there is even just a *slight* chance of rain, if i am on my bike i will get caught in it. it always happens.
i was literally 500 feet from my destination when the deluge hit.
decided to hit the trail for the ride home. this was the first i have biked this week. i have been incredibly cranky because of that.
this was the final reading for ********SNOW RULER WATCH 2008********.
so i was outside the patio door when a teeny field mouse emerged from the snow. of course i freaked out, because that 1" long mouse could have easily devoured my head in one bite. i can't even imagine what that poor thing has had to dig through to get to my door. i found a shoebox, put a towel inside along with a piece of bread and a strawberry. then i wrapped up a bunch of uncooked rice in a bandana and microwaved it for a bit and put it in as well. he's hanging out by my door now.
and, of course, the cats are royally freaking out.
i could probably be doing something more productive.
ok seriously. was ODOT seriously not prepared for this morning? are they, like, watching a fox news afilliate in, like, forida and therefore completely did not get word that the heavens were gonna dump an infinite buttload of snow on us overnight? cuz, like, we all knew this was coming. there's no excuse for 6" piles of snow in the middle of the highway, let alone 6" piles of snow that block ENTIRE LANES.
i left my house at 7:10 this morning. i got in at 9:15. and i have to take boog to a followup doc appt, which means i drive out west to parma from the east, then back out west again. and then tonight i am supposed to get the last bit of my shit out of the old place.
didnt i already hit the reset button? because right now if someone so much as *looks* at me wrong today, they're losing appendages.
