So the time snuck up on me faster than I thought it would. My last few days included eating with family at Texas Roadhouse for the last time in a while, getting a free Grand Slam from Denny's, visiting friends and playing Wii and Dance Dance Revolution, Settlers of Catan, and visiting my school for a tapas event.
I was really stressed out yetsterday after seeing the weather forecast and was trying to frantically see about getting out on a flight for Tuesday instead of Wednesday, but the flight was full. It was still on my mind while I was at school, but the tapas event was a nice break and was a good opportunity to see some of my students again as well as some of my teaching colleauges.
After I realized that there was nothing I could do to change my flight or the weather, I decided I was simply going to enjoy my last day before the trip and just take the flight one step at a time. I had dinner with friends Tuesday night, and when I left their place around 7:45 it was already snowing, and it had accumulated quite a bit. (Weather.com was forecasting it to start at 10 or so, so I was suprised that it came earlier than that.)
Then I was off to another friend's to visit, and I stayed until about 11:30. None of us bothered to look out the window at that time, but there was probably about 6 inches then. Luckily I had brushes and ice scrapers with me, and I made it home safe and sound.
My dad and I ended up leaving around 7 in the morning, and luckily the weather had taken a break from snow, and we were getting rain. The roads were mostly clear with a little bit of slush, and here is a shot from along the way:
