First day of winter and it's still dumping snow here. Luckily there's no wind and it's about 27 degrees F. So it's tolerable. And unbelievably gorgeous.

I just had to be pulled out of the "ditch" along 520 ... and I drive a 4-wheel drive Jeep! But I could have had 18-wheel drive and nothing would have helped when I hit a huge patch of ice covered with snow. I just slowly swished across three lanes and into the ditch. They had just plowed and there was enough of a hill on either side of me that I couldn't get out of the little gully. A very sweet young man and his girlfriend stopped and helped me. I think I surprised him when I gave him a big hug after I was out. But he just laughed and wished me a Merry Christmas. Kind people do exist!!!

I used this in the "While you shiver" thread too... From the Detroit News this morning....

Quote:
DETROIT -- What do Moscow, Russia, Stockholm, Sweden and Juneau, Alaska have in common?
They're all warmer than Detroit this morning.
Stockholm's 39 degrees seems tropical, Moscow's 14-degree temperature is balmy and Juneau's 7 degrees is preferable to Detroit's 4 degrees on this, the first full day of winter. An arctic blast from Canada is responsible for the unseasonably cold temperatures.
