The ice has broken!

Our little neighborhood has been locked in ice and snow since Sunday. Yesterday I watched a two truck driver with a VW bug try to get out of a side street. The tow truck did not have chains. He was sliding sideways. He barely missed a row of cars.

I hate feeling trapped. I also hate sliding around, wondering if I'm going to end up in that ditch or hitting that car in front of me. So for the past five days, the only places I've gone have been reached - gingerly - on foot.

But today there is a temporary break in the weather. I feel dizzy with possibilities. Fred Meyer? Winco? Trader Joes? The gym? The library? Last minute Christmas shopping?

Yes. And yes and yes and yes. Yes.
