I'm a Wimp...

 
 
I was set to go,
waiting in the car
with my girl,
waiting for her bus.







 
 





There she goes...








so off I went.




 
 15 minutes to go one mile.
With a 25 mile trip one way,
I turned around and came home.

I relinquish my badge
as a true
Minnesota Girl.



But just for today.

Ha, god for you! I would have looked out the window and declared it a snow day and back to bed we would all go.

I was going to complain about flight delays and hours stranded in airports but yours beats mine.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I think you were wise!

Jackie said...

You were a "Minnesota smart" driver....good choice! I would have sat and enjoyed it from my window :)

OMg, I can't believe that is your weather while here in Miami it is almost 90 degrees. Weird. I thought it was supposed to be Spring?
Hope you are having a nice cup of hot chocolate and relaxing with a warm blanket.

Paula said...

Instinct took over and I'm thrilled you listened to it!

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I think you definitely made the right decision :)

Dianna said...

Wow - I can't imagine! Is that today?? (I hate to tell you, but we have sunshine, and it's 85 degrees. Wanna come for a visit??)

Betsy Brock said...

haha...well, who can blame you! But it looks the same in Ohio during the winter!

Nice to be here again! :)

Lynne said...

Good girl . . . I would have gone home too. Awful driving! You sure got the winter weather, AGAIN! I am happy you are safe!

Katie Clooney said...

Wow... haven't seen that since we lived in Chicago!! Spring weather will arrive any minute in MN ... hope so! Have a great weekend, Jill. Hope it warms up!!

Buttons said...

I do not blame you one little bit. Hope you went back to bed. Hug B

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

WE have that here in winter too...I woulda turned around too...but we have entered into spring and it is WELCOME.

Nancy Claeys said...

Only one mile to go? Lol -- I don't think your heart was in it from mile one. Looks like a good day to call in to me -- you deserve it. xo

Linda said...

I think you are wise. Here in Montreal we are expecting some snow tonight and tomorrow. I got some food in the house today and don't plan on going out tomorrow unless I really have to.

Beth said...

I hope spring comes for you soon.

Paula said...

Good for you to not take a chance.

Tammy ~ Country Girl at Home ~ said...

Well this Arkansas girl wouldn't have lasted no time in that. :) Our schools close down with an inch on the ground. lol!

Your follower button wasn't showing up for me...I'll be back to try again! And for some reason, my dashboard isn't letting me either. :(

Blessings,
Tammy

Terri said...

Dang! We would have been shut down around here! Good decision!

Leslie said...

OMG.. it's tough to send the kids off in this kind of weather. My neighbor used to live in your neck of the woods and she tells me crazy stories about the weather. I don't know how you manage!

EW! Someone needs to let the weather people know it's APRIL!

Rohrerbot said...

Wonderful! I love those moments of perfection. Look at that glorious snow!

Bee Lady said...

You'renot a wimp. You're smart! I always get upset when there are weather related accidents. I believe only true emergencies should be out in weather like that! Good day to snuggle up with a book.

Dear Jill, I would have done the same thing! I don't like to drive in such weather. That looks terrifying!! Blessings dear. Catherine xox
