The weather-guessers were predicting Snowageddon, so we knew it wouldn't do anything much. Woke up to light rain, and decided that Kevin, Natalie and I would go to Independence and eat at On the Border (Monica was at a friend's.) I had a gift card from my birthday, and I love free lunch.
We scoffed at the Snownami threat, and headed out. At Big Lots, we bought a $100 set of T-Fal cookware for $60. My pots and pans are old and sad, but still have some life in them, so they become Brett's. Finally, after wasting enough time to let OTB open for the day, we headed that direction. The rain had picked up a bit, but still no snow or ice. HA! Stupid weather dudes!
I scoff at you! I win! I got to eat out and run errands and did NOT let you scare me into staying home!
OK, then we stopped at WalMart (or hell, whatever) to buy a gallon of paint. Natalie really wanted to paint her room, and Kevin said he'd help her if she'd help him gut the room completely and deep clean it first. She agreed, so we went in. The rain was harder, and cold, but still no snow, stupid TV freaks.
When we came out of Walmart, the rain was large, slushy and weird. Hmmm. We should get home, just in case they're right. We hit the road, and as we drove up the on-ramp, we saw cars already in ditches. Kevin thinks that the first one to wreck, before it gets real bad, must be as embarrassed as the first one voted off survivor. LOL
We took it slow, but my car did fine. At the next exit, we saw traffic coming to a halt, and several cars off the road. I took that exit and took the side roads. My car did fine, still, but it was slick. The farther we went, the slicker it got. My top speed was 30. What a nerve-wracking trip!
Don't worry. Kevin manned the camera. Click on the picture to make it bigger and see what our view was like.
Anyway, this is me; going on the record; standing up and shouting, "The weather dudes got it right this time!"
