Snow Day

I woke up this morning to snow covering everything. Not like a thin layer, but something around 2 to 3 inches.

Riding the bus was a lot of fun. Here is the first rule of riding the bus in snow, you are going to be late. The second rule is that it is going to feel more like a carnival ride than a bus ride.

The bus stopped in the road, rather than pull up to the curb. Then, we start and we immediately go into a skid. Only thought through my mind is HFS (Holy Farking Somethingorother). Driver lets off the gas, and we recover. We go on to the next stop, stop in the middle of the road, and then start skidding when we take off. That is how a large vehicle like a bus drives in snow. Start off, begin to drift, let off the gas, recover, wipe hands on pants and repeat.

I can tell this is going to be a fun day.

Here are some pictures from today (click for larger version):
