We had about 4 more inches yesterday, and I was out and about. I really don't mind driving in it either, as long as I've got my 4 wheel drive to rely on. I don't consider it painful at all. I sort of consider it a challenge to maneuver my way around the city and get to where I'm going. When the guy reporting on the news is saying, "If you don't have to travel, don't. Stay where you are." That's when my palms start itching. Drives Elenka crazy! Of course, the biggest impediment to my traveling these days isn't 'wild' radio exaggerations, the blizzard conditions outside, or even the threat of an accident. No, no, no! The biggest of roadblocks is the continuing escalation of the price at the pump. Creeping, creeping, creeping. Up! Even when the price of a barrel of petroleum on the world market drops, the numbers at my local gas station tick up. This marquee, on Pine Street at 3.36, advertises one of the cheapest respites in the city. It's always nice to come upon an oasis like this, so you can feed your camel.
No rant today. I'll leave it at this. I'm gassed!
