Ice from the Inside
There was a time when I was fanatical about ignoring the weather and carrying on with my life. I'm sure there were many days like this one when I slipped and slid and took unnecessary chances just to show up for work. I wasn't about to use my leave to stay home, even though it was often "liberally" granted.
In contrast it was great to wake up today and look at the blanket of ice enveloping everything outside, knowing that I had no reason to leave home until mid-afternoon. I stuck my head out to take the above picture. Jake like an idiot decided to eat the ice off the deck.
That sort of weather-induced angst takes its toll. I'm really glad to have the freedom to escape it these days.
