(written from notes in my planner last Wednesday, after a day of steady snow)
To have a steady wintry snow like this in mid-November, I am grateful...
...that I honored my instinct to stop for gas on Tuesday night, when I didn't quite need to, so that I could drive straight home from work on this night.
...that I have a simple commute almost entirely on main roads that are kept clear by the public services and the regular traffic.
...that I was able to park safely in my covered parking space using my rudimentary snow-driving skills, even though the parking lot itself had not been cleared.
If all of my winter travel this year can be so straightforward, I will consider myself fortunate.
