Say 'No' to Snow!

To all you over-zealous snow fans, I have a one thing to say: No.

I'm just not ready. If any of you have ridden in my car lately, you realize that snow is not good news for me at this time. I have no heat in my car. In fact, cold air is constantly blowing from the vents. No heat means my windows fog up really easily. I literally hold my breath as long as I can while I drive to work. If I want to be able to see, I have to turn on the defroster which blows more cold air. It's also really hard for my to shift since I have to be bundled up pretty tight. My rear passenger window is also stuck rolled down about a half-inch. My cd player doesn't play CDs if they are too cold so I have to use friction to heat up the discs before I can listen to them.

The snow also throws off my lunch schedule. I usually walk across the parking lot to Albertson's where I buy a yogurt and some noodles. The only dress shoes I have are the same shoes I wore on my mission. Although I didn't make it two years, I still managed to wear holes in these shoes.

I drive to work in my ice cube of a car. Then I get my feet wet just walking from the car to the bank. My feet are finally dry just in time for me to walk to pick up my lunch. By the time I leave work, it's already dark and my windows are frozen once again. I have to start the whole CD rubbing process all over again.

I'm not complaining, but. . . . okay, I'm complaining. If anybody has any cheap ways to stay warm (other than the obvious answer of fixing my heater) let me know.

It's time for some new shoes Kyle! Good grief. And you could take your lunch to work? Then you wouldn't have to walk outside. I wasn't ready for the snow either, but I choose to embrace it for it's beauty, and have a good attitude this winter! At least for now.

In high school, when I had Woodcrappo, I put an old blanket over my windsheild during the night. I'd just throw it over and tuck it into the doors. Then the windsheild wouldn't have ice on it in the morning and I wouldn't have to spend as much time defrosting and scraping it. My heater was no good then either, and this helped a lot.

I agree with Landon and Kylie, get some new shoes :) Or wear sneakers until you get to work. Then you can switch at lunch too. I've also found that food will stay cold in your car during the winter. Maybe not right now when it starts to get sunny during the day, but for sure later on...

I must concur. BOO to snow! I would also suggest that you start bringing your lunch. Maybe you could tape up your window or something too to cut down the draft. When we had Dinah, duct tape was our best friend.

Maybe you should have fixed your heater with the money you gave to The Man (read: Gold's Gym).

Hinsight is always 20/20!

You could get one of those rice bags that go in the microwave and stuff it in your coat.
