It was a frosty morning January 3rd. I woke up rather early (for me) for some reason and headed downstairs for breakfast. Everything seemed like a normal winter day, except that the sky had that funny look. You know, the look where the sky is completely light gray and everything outside is silent. Yes, that.
It didn’t start until after I had showered. Itty bitty little flakes were falling in front of my bedroom window and I would have thought it was just the frost blowing off the roof if it weren’t for the sky.
Soon the snow began to fall and the streets were covered in a quarter inch of white, wet fluff. Not much you say? Well, in Washington that means the roads are covered in black ice.
I went to Best Buy with my brother and my dad to buy an Elgato game capture card for our YouTube channel and our Twitch channel, and the snow had melted quite a bit in that time. I thought it was over.
YES! I screamed inside. I won’t have to drive in the snow for the first day of winter quarter at the college tomorrow.
I was wrong.
Just after 8 p.m. the snow picked up again, dumping much harder and faster than before. We probably have close to an inch now and it’s still falling as I write this at 10 p.m. The college still hasn’t notified us of anything so school will be in session, and that means driving in the snow and ice tomorrow morning.
