It's not yet winter. Don't worry, you'll get yours

We're expecting the storm to hit late Tuesday/early Wednesday. It's going to screw up travel on the east coast. SO's son and DIL are scheduled to fly up Wed. night. I hope they are not delayed too long.

There have already been lots of canceled flights that need to be rebooked. I'm glad we're not going anywhere this year.

We had a drivers' ed. class in high school. Complete with a huge blacktopped course and about a dozen cars. It was somebody's brainstorm that they haven't done in a long time.
I had my license already, so I could drive on the streets with the instructor and a back seat full of kids.

That big paved area was popular for a lot of things, including donuts in the winter. Not the kind of donuts we always picked up with the one instructor.

We used shopping center parking lots for that stuff.

That'll work. This area was dark with no light poles though. And it sat up above the two roads bordering it. It was perfect. Nobody knew you were up there unless you had your headlights on and no fear of hitting anyting unless you got stupid.
Winters of days gone by...

I looked at the radar and it looks like Carol is getting the bulk of that snow. Nothing up here on the lake... yet.

Most winters, after the first good snowfall, I drive over to the mall after they close. They have a really big parking lot. I practice winter maneuvers. There are usually other people there doing that too, but there is plenty of room.

Sunny, the temp steadily dropped, and the wind picked up. 18F here along the river.
