If it was just snow, that wouldn't bug me that much, its the ice that really worries me. After last year's ice storms and falling as much as I did(2 really bad falls, but nothing broken) I'm almost petrefied to go outside now. I'm the idiot you see walking at like 1/2 mile an hour on the side walks because i don't want to fall. Our grounds crew on campus is horrible...6 of my close friends had broken bones(arms or legs) from falling last year...and though its gotten a little better they still scrape off all the snow and leave all the ice for us to slip on.
I wish I lived a little further north where there getting a foot of snow but no ice, I can drive in that. They are predicting about 1/4 of an inch of glare ice by the end of the day and I have to drive home at midnight from work...if I even go in. I don't start working until 8 PM tonight so we will see if I manage to get there and back safely. They give us about 30 dollars in coupons for making it in to the office in bad weather and if I have perfect attendence they give me a free turkey next week so I am thinking about trying to make it in, but with out the car I'm used to I'm a little worried and stressed.
The beach bum thing comes up around this time every year, I have finals starting next week and with 36 hours worth of part time(yeah right) work this week I don't know when I am going to study for the exams I have this week and finals next week. Being a beach bum there are no tests, no quizes, no papers. You just have to worry about catching enough to survive, and having a decent shelter. Yep that sounds like a pretty good life right about now.
