i live in a bubble
so, remember awhile back when i fantasized for you guys about moving to britton, sd?
um, slight change of plans.
yesterday, here in lovely sf, which i never thought of as 'south' before, it was a gorgeous day. even though my driveway is still recovering from 3" of solid sleet over the weekend, the roads were actually pretty good. and as i jumped in bert the honda to meet up with my client on the interstate - heading for clear lake, sd - life was fine. i was jamming to my radio, admiring the sunny snow, and had no worries whatsoever.
yikes. that is, until we continued north - luckily, lindsey was driving by then. friends, i'm telling ya, my life was in danger. we drove for an hour and a half on sheer ice. i rode in the driver's seat with my foot on the brake ;)
every time a semi rolled past us at the speed of light, i prayed. i prayed alot yesterday....there were alot of semis.
luckily, we made it both to and fro, safely and soundly, if not late for our meeting. however, the next time i decide to move ANYWHERE that involves more north than here, please kick me in the shin. yes, lou, that probably means the North Shore is out, too :)
sigh. it's good to be back home in the south.
