Had an invigorating slalom into work this morning. Second gear is a wonderful gear. My sincere apologies to the driver of the blue Nissan; it was either cut into your lane or be winged by the fishtailing Ford approaching on my eight.

People say they hate snow, but personally I love it. I wish we would actually get some instead of every other state of frozen water known to man.

Couldn't agree more. I enjoy walking to work in the morning, and snow is a welcome development.

See, you can walk through snow safely if you have decent shoes. Glare ice on the other hand, while navigable with Yak Trax and the like, is still kind of a screaming bitch in comparison.

Ah yes, glare ice, a little local speciality, like candlepin bowling or marshmallow fluff. The most magical ice in the world, many people don't believe it even exists. In fact, I passed by quite a few of those on my way to work today. What's incredible about glare ice is it actually creates localised pockets of antigravity. You might have the world's most advanced anti-skid system in your car, but it is not designed for antigravity. Simply put, your life hangs by a thread until Newton reasserts control. And you'll never see it coming, that glare ice patch with your name on it written in glare ice on a glare ice background, until it's much to late to pray.

Oh destiny, thy name is glare.

That's because we use so much of it we have to import, so actually quite a bit of our weather is made in places like Detroit and Chicago and then shipped here.
