Today is December 5, 2005, and it's snowing like crazy outside. I can't remember a snow this early in the year since 1986. Normally I'd be excited, but there are 3 mitigating factors:
1. My wife is very pregnant. Amanda's at almost 8 months right now, and according to the baby calendar, she's due to have our child somewhere between 3 and 8 weeks from now. Why is this important to the snow? Well, first of all, she's at work, and must drive home at the end of the day. Secondly, she has a class to attend this evening on the opposite end of town. I don't want her to go, but she's willful (love ya, babe!).
2. I'm driving on wholly-inappropriate tires. I had hoped to be back to stock wheels & tires by now, but there simply hasn't been time to swap my brakes back to stock, which means I can't even mount my stock wheels. So I'm on Max Performance Summer tires, which have absolutely no grip in the snow. Fun.
Anyway, kick back, enjoy the snow, and enjoy a hot cup of cocoa: it's snowing!
