( 1:47 PM ) teahouse
I made it back in one piece..barely. It started snowing while I was up there.
Having grown up in the Deep South and seen snow once in my childhood, I didn't know what to do when I left the client's office and walked to the parking lot, to see my rental car buried in snow.
I thought to myself, "That's what that brushy thing in the trunk must be for." I took it out and scraped the snow off my windshield. But it was frozen on, and I didn't do a very good job.
I had to drive on the unplowed highway in the dark, the snow swirling around me, unable to see the lines on the road.
The storm chased me down I-95. I thought I was going to die about 10 times.
But I'm alive!!
Now I'm going to hole up, take a hot bath, read the New York Times, have some hot chocolate, and rest my poor nerves.
