After being snowed in yesterday, I resolved to leave early this morning. Here's what really happened:
7:15 AM Left my apartment to get a little everything-bagel-with-onion & chive-cream-cheese for breakfast before work.
7:20 AM Got stuck in a snowdrift while attempting to leave the underground parking garage + faced another car stuck trying to enter the garage. Backed in while avoiding a fishtail maneuver into the brick walls.
7:30 AM Discover that two women using little snow scrapers does not dig out two cars from the snow.
7:45 AM Gratefully accept help from another neighbor who'd like to leave for work. As we're all clearing snow from around the tires, I hear the woman say to her son, "Let's pray and see what happens." I think, "Well..it's good that they want to pray...I'll keep working." Then I hear the other neighbor say, "OK!!" and I think "Wow, he's going to pray too?" Right. No. Turns out the woman said "Let's TRY and see what happens." Good ears there, Sunny!
8:00 AM The other two cars have gotten out and it's now my turn. Back way up into the garage and speed toward the garage entrance and YESSS victory! Got up the little hill and through the snowdrifts to the road. It's about time.
SERIOUSLY? Leaving 45 minutes early to commute had me arriving 15 minutes late?! Saw the patio table above and had to snap a photo for you. Can you even believe it?!
