This is the nice blue view from my front door at 7:10 this morning. There was a layer of sleet on top of the ice, so it looked like snow but was, in fact, frozen yuckiness. I was one of the first people to leave my apartment, it seemed. Sully and I took our hilarious walk (with her prancing strangely and me wearing knee-high socks, men's sweatpants, galoshes from the kids' department, a long-sleeved T-shirt, gloves that say "Baby Girl" on the palms, a scarf, a hat, and my giant wool coat), doing our best to avoid the slick spots. Other pet owners hadn't been so brave yet, so her tiny prints were the only ones out there. See:
They're so cute and little! I wish I had brought her to work with me (though I'm sure the other two people in my department would have objected). Instead, she's all warm and adorable at home with Grey, who took the day off. Lucky! I'm in the office, slaving away as usual (i.e. writing a grant in between blog posts and Twitter updates and while listening to my MySpace playlist).
I hope everyone else in the area is keeping warm and safe. The roads are still pretty dern bad, so stay off them if you can. If you're feeling philanthropic, bring me a large cheese pizza, and I'll be your best friend. ;)
