Plans

I had quite a lot planned for today.  Actually, I had quite a lot planned for last evening, and for today.

Last evening’s plans included driving in to Seattle to see a show at the Paramount.  We were most of the way there when the heavy snow started falling.  In 10 minutes, the highway was one continuous sheet of hardpack snow coated with 1/4 inch of wet ice.  Traffic was at a standstill, which didn’t prevent collisions because the stopped cars would start sliding spontaneously.  We managed to get off the freeway (abandoning all hope of the show) and tried to take surface streets home.  Traffic was at a standstill.

 Usual driving time to Seattle: 50 minutes.  Round trip time last night: 6 hours.  Sheesh.

Woke up this morning and took a look at how much snow had fallen at our house.  Yesterday morning’s prediction: ‘occasional snow flurries’.  Measurement this morning: 10″ of snow.

So this morning’s plans turned into chaining up the Subaru, driving to town and getting the mail, etc. 

Kodak, however, feels that the occasional (or even frequent) abandoning of plans to have a ‘snow day’ is a Good Thing.
