A snowy gourd I found on flikr.We had our first snowfall of the season here in Connecticut this afternoon — pretty early for us too. I mean, I haven’t even started raking leaves yet?!

Last year it didn’t snow until Decemember 7th

Anyway, there isn’t much in the way of accumulation (it’s still snowing) but it’s as though the people on the road have *never* seen snow before. I hate how that happens.

Really, tonight my three mile commute home from work took…50 minutes!?. How ridiculous is that?

In my prime, I could *run* that distance in under 16 minutes. In fact, I could’ve walked home faster.

Apparently, according to the local news, this isn’t the earliest snow we’ve ever had. Way back when we had a significant snowfall during the first week of October. I’m shocked that I don’t remember it but that’s probably because it was right around the time that I would have been too busy memorizing things like ↑, ↑, ↓, ↓, ←, →, ←, →, B, A, Select, Start…

Someone out there will know *exactly* what I’m talking about…

I hope.

PIAC Post Extension:
I titled the post Chicago-style commute because I’ve never encountered traffic worse than that of greater-Chicago. Three miles in a little under an hour seems about right. It’s no wonder that my dad took the train to work when we used to lived there.

  1. Meanwhile, out in Tucson, Arizona… it was 94 degrees today! Last week it was 40 in the mornings… go figure! One week we sweat, one week we freeze. Thanksgiving will be hotter than haities, but Easter we will have snow!

  2. Get a bicycle 🙂
    I’ve been thinking of starting a viral “boycott credit cards for a week in November” email, but I’m old enough to know how to get along without a credit card for a week. Is anybody else? I already make sure not to use it with my local small biz folks so that the 3% isn’t siphoned away…
