After an 8-inch snowfall blessed us with a snow day on Friday, this morning we woke up to another several inches and a truck that would not start. Thankfully, a boost from the battery charger woke up the truck and my daughter’s school had a late-start morning because of last night’s Super Bowl party (don’t ask).
My travel commitment today is a trip on the train to Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital to support a cousin who is having surgery. Temperatures are mild, and there’s not much of a wind. The snow is beautiful, at least for now, until the
drizzling rain turns it into slush. So is the lightning that is beginning to flash on the southwest horizon.
My trip in won’t be too onerous. I am resigned to the extra expense of a taxi from Ogilvie Station to the hospital, and taking an early afternoon train gives me enough time to putter around a bit this morning.
Here’s to more frequent trips, even if they’re local ones, and more frequent blog entries. Please take a look at my photoblog, Lanora Mueller Photography, for some new photo posts there.
