It started snowing while I was out getting gas in my car and food. I almost didn't make it back. Thank goodness for front wheel drive -- but I didn't want to go out again. I drove two or three miles in 2nd and 3rd gear.
Then Alyce called -- from Mississippi, mind you. Marcus's brother's truck wouldn't make it up the hill from the next town, so would I go get him? Marcus's Subaru is here at Eleanor's so they gave me permission to use it, since it has all-wheel drive. I didn't bring any boots up here, so I had to wear Eleanor's, and her feet are easily two sizes bigger than mine.
So anyway, I had to go back out, in boots that don't fit, driving a car that isn't mine, which is low on gas, to a place I've never been, to pick up someone I've met once.
In a blizzard.
Everything turned out all right, but oy! I'm pooped. Sore throat too. Early to bed tonight, I think.
