Chaos, Mayhem, and "Drunk Bumps"

My friend Josh once said that driving in a snowstorm was like driving in a video game, but in my opinion, it's like a really shitty awful video game. I made it three hours driving up to Nate's parents' house with no problem, but the last hour was terrible: I could barely see out my window and I went off the road - on both sides - and only found my way back on because I ran over those bump son the side of the road. Nate calls them drunk bumps; I like to call them "Wake up, asshole" bumps. To make matters worse, a little spot on my windshield iced up, right where my eyes look out. I had to hunch down all drug-dealer style to see out.

We made it, but there was treachery and yelling. Good thing there was post-Christmas Christmas to be had after we arrived!

I had the same experience tonight...only it wasn't as long of a trip. I hate winter. The worst driving ever was coming home from Interlochen and I couldn't tell where the road was. I just used the billboards to kind of guess how far over I should be. It was horrible.

weather outlook for this week: never below 39 degrees. average of maybe 58 during the day.

I still wonder what possessed those ancient men to see that it kept getting warmer as they kept walking away from the land bridge and to say "Hey, I think it's best if we stay here and attempt to live in a place where our snot freezes inside our nose." Maybe they were just tired of walking. I hate walking.

It's 58 degress in NYC and I haven't seen snow here in over a month. I hate winter in NYC. I love snow and cold. I know I'm a freak, but I miss it!

Those thingys are called "Rumble strips" ANd they are actually to wake you if you fall asleep at the wheel. I did a speech on it once . . . .
