Mondays are bad enough, but add 4 inches of snow to a city of weather-idiots, and trudging to work becomes EXPONENTIALLY worse. Sigh, today would have been a perfect day to be curled up with a book. But come 7:30 this morning the dearth of a snow-day email in my work inbox seemed to say, “Be thy TBR pile as chaste as ice, pure as snow, thou shalt not escape your office. Get thee to the metro, go.”
We both started off nice and roasty-toasty warm in the house
Kedzie bounded about a bit in our city-sized “backyard.” Ok it’s a bricked-over courtyard.
She was staring at the leash, willing me to put it on; she loves going for a walk in the snow. I can’t say I agree, plus my fake Uggs aren’t waterproof.
When I gave up taking the bus the 9 blocks to my metro for Lent I was thinking only of being less “slothful,” I did not consider that the weather gods would dump snow inside the infamous DC split territory that is usually safe from all snow, especially in MARCH. Here is Thomas Circle on my walk:
Finally, destination reached! And the metro wasn’t even delayed, so I couldn’t sneak in any more reading than usual. I LOVE when the metro is delayed, and the orange line is the finicky-est = match made in heaven!
