Walking 1.5 miles in the snow, uphill

18 Dec

I left the office today about 6:00 and there was little in the way of rain/snow in the Redmond area. But the closer I got to Woodinville, the more rain/snow was falling and beginning to accumulate. By the time I was approaching my neighborhood, the streets had considerable amount of snow covering them and cars were having difficulty preventing their tires from spinning out. Long story short, I could not successfully drive back into my neighborhood and had to instead park my car at the nearby grocery store. I walked about 1.5 miles to my house (uphill in the snow, no joke) and finally arrived home after trekking for about 40 mins.

The funny thing about this is that I began the day working from home due to the weather forecast and school closures suggesting it was going to be bad weather and to stay off the roads. But the entire morning was warm (i.e. above freezing) and dry. So I thought it was a little foolish to be staying home and decided to head in to the office.

It was a fun day. Despite the walking home in the freezing cold, it was a beautiful scene with the white powdery snow covering everything and the calm and quiet hills. I should have been taking pictures to share!
