So this is what it looked like out my windshield driving home today.... Notice the time at the bottom right of the pic... No? Well, it says 5:53PM. Do you know what that means? That means that after leaving my office at 3:30PM, I was still on I-294 going home 2 1/2 hours later. This was about 1/2 mi before my exit, which is about a mile away from my house. Wanna know how long that 1 1/2 miles took me? 30 more minutes. Which is 5 minutes less than the TOTAL time it normally takes me to get to and from work.
Yeah, so I probably wasn't being safe driving and taking pictures at the same time, but it's a digital camera and I was only going 5mph at the time. See, a picture to prove it:
No joke though, it seriously sucked. I mean it was horrible. Driving in this made me feel like a fist was tightening my stomach, squeezing it tighter and tighter, especially every time I fishtailed. Ugh.
AND!!!! My wiper blades accumulated ice chunks on them, so I only had a 4 inch streak to see through as the blades went back and forth. Thankfully, that four inch streak was right at near eye level. You can see it if you look closely in these pics:
But here I am, home at last. Granted I've been home for about 1 1/2 hours, I had to make something for dinner b/c I was starving. I made some plain buttered noodles b/c I think that was all my stomach could take. But I'm annoyed b/c I was going to make cookies tonight and now I am too tired. Boo!!!
