I'm lucky enough to be able to work from home, so when I came down with a cold on Monday, I took advantage of it. I stayed home until Wednesday, but yesterday I really needed to go on - In part so that I actually got tired enough to sleep.
I left early to avoid traffic, and then finished my day from home.
So this morning when I woke to ice falling from the sky*, I thought I'd stay home again.
Then I realized that the odds of me going grocery shopping after work were really low if I hadn't left the house yet, and if I went to work, I could go out for lunch, so I went in to work.
It took me a while to chip the ice ** off the car, but it actually was a faster drive than usual. Driving home was fast, too.
That would be the silver lining to the "snow in the middle of April" cloud.
* not freezing rain - ice pellets.
** the freezing rain was before the ice pellets
