Commute From Hell

I have only had a few worse commutes than my one this morning. Last night we had a mixture of rain, sleet, and snow, which turned the roads into mini ice skating rinks by morning. I was between a rock and a hard place. Had this been a typical morning I would have said, "Screw this!" and called in sick. Heck, I was even only scheduled to work half a day today anyway. But I was also going to be gone for over a week. There were a couple of little things to clean up before I left. So I decided to brave the elements. *sigh* The shit I do because of an anal-retentive boss. So I hit the road and made it safely to work in just about an hour. The morning commute normally takes me about 20 minutes. I'm glad that people were cautious. They were just a little too overly cautious. Better safe than sorry. I did see a couple of spin-outs, usually pick ups that probably had rear-wheel drive and not enough weight in the back. I'm hoping that the Sun will come out and start to clear things up by late morning. I plan on hitting the road to LA by mid afternoon just to put some miles between me and ABQ and make the rest of the drive a little more manageable tomorrow. To those that are going to FC...see you in San Jose!
