Driving Through the Snow

So, we're finally going to get some snow. All of the earlier storms that were forecast missed us. We got a little bit of snow here and there, but it was the nicest winter in many long year. However, that's going to be changing, starting today and extending through early evening tomorrow. Now we're going to be dumped on - anywhere from 6-12 inches in 24+ hours. Not nearly as bad as our huge snowstorm starting off last winter's many storms, but a very respectable amount that will make driving hazardous, getting in and out of my parking lot challenging, and will keep me home for most of my day off tomorrow (just most - not all - LOL). Here's a lovely winter scene for you to look at. My surroundings won't look this good until at least Thursday or Friday :-)

And my car turned a big mileage breakthrough last night on my way home from work. I've owned cars that flipped over to 100,000 before, but never on a car that I loved so much or that I intended to keep and go on driving for many more miles.

She's a PT Cruiser and I took delivery of her in early December 2000, so I've had her for many years. She constantly amazes and delights me (except for the more recent repair bills - *sigh*). I've never driven a car that I love so much before. I look out at her shadow when driving to workshops or conferences and just smile. It's a classic silhouette and to me she looks beautiful.

I'm a car fan all the way around. Many of my friends, also my DH, look upon a car as transportation. I look at a car as art. The beauty of the lines, the layout of the dashboard, the arrangement under the hood - I love it all. The old saying is that America is car crazy, I think we're just in love with our cars - our rolling, functional, pieces of artwork.
