This has been a crazy morning. I woke up to Philip's cold hands letting me know that was cold and snowy outside. I tried to warm him up a bit before he headed out to face the great wintry unknown. Then, I went back to sleep for about an hour until Astrid let me know that she was ready to go on her walk. I decided that the weather warranted my warm winter coat so I pulled it out from inside the bed and I put it on with all of my fabulously warm hand knitted accessories. On the way out of the house, I reached into my coat pocket and pulled out a $10 bill that I must have let in there last winter (probably from the sled day last Spring.) Ten dollars richer, Astrid and I proceeded on our walk. Astrid has mixed feelings about the snow, sometimes she does her business and heads back inside and other times she hops around and explores like a little child. Today was the latter so we ended up going on two walks so that she could get the maximum amount of snow fun in before I left her to her daily napping duties.
Kentuckians aren't equipped to deal with a lot of ice and snow so in general when there is a snowfall a lot of government and city services shut down or go on alternate plans. Lextran was one of those services. Evidently, if your bus stop doesn't have a snowflake the bus won't pick you up. There is no list that I could find of the stops with snowflakes so I just headed to my stop and hoped for the best. Unfortunately, my stop did not have a snowflake so I had to trek to the next stop. Luckily the bus was a little late so I made it there in plenty of time. I also discovered that the stop I get of at by the shop doesn't have a snowflake either, but the driver was super nice and let me off there anyway. Now I am at the shop, which is completely dead and I am playing contraband Christmas music while I work on Christmas presents.
