Trying to decide if I want to drive or take public transportation to party tonight. The party is about 25 km from here. It's currently -17C, feels like -27C. It will probably be hard to find parking because we just had a snow dump of about 25 or 30 cm. So, do I take the bus and metro and not have to think about parking and about 1 hour travel or take the car for 30 minutes travel and who knows how long finding a parking spot or paying to put it in a lot. Decisions, decisions.

My final decision would be based on how late I plan to stay at the party. If I were going to be out quite late, I don't think I'd want to wait for the bus. Just my 2 cents though. Have fun tonight!

Also, by taking your car, unless you are bringing a desinated driver with you, it will limit how much you can drink and tell you when you need to stop so you can be a responsible driver. And save you a hangover in the morning.

I'm always the designated driver. DH never learned how to drive. I have lots of practice being responsible with the booze.

But, there won't be a lot of booze at this party. It's a group performance of a radio play, written by the three birthday folks. It will be in a rented room with a stage, in a library! They have been doing this for about five years and call it "Capricornicopia"

Yeah, I'm thinking about waiting for that bus for 20 minutes in -19C to -23C at around midnight and it doesn't really appeal very much.

Man I wish the seat heaters worked in my car.

That sounds like a fun night.
