Nearly every week for the past few months, frozen material falls from the sky in the form of snow, sleet, hail, or icy rain. Sunday evening, I woke in the middle of the night and thought the light reflecting from the window looked strange. Sure enough there was a blanket of snow on everything. It continued to snow and when we got up around 6 a.m. there was several inches on everything.
 
Not having my computer, I had no choice but to get dressed and trek to work. To determine the feasibility of my plan, Rich decided to test drive my Honda FIT in the snow. He carefully backed out of the garage and turned the wheel to head out of the driveway when the car start to slide sideways. Miraculous, he was able to stop the car from cascading down the hill,
 
After easing it partially onto the driveway, he placed a plywood board under the front wheels then shoved a pathway in front of the car so he could slowly drive it back into the safety of the garage.
 
Plan II.
 
Because I needed my computer in order to work, Rich had no choice but to drive me to Microsoft in his truck, which has 4-wheel drive. The scenary was spectacular and fortunately, traffic was light. Within an hour, I had my computer and was back home to spend the rest of the day working and enjoying a winter wonderland. Throughout the day, it snowed on-and-off. As evening approached, however, it started to warm up and by Tuesday morning, most of the snow was gone.
