Burr, it's cold!

We finally got some wintery precipitation this year, whoo hoo. Unfortunately, it's not the kind I would have liked. I've been wishing for snow for a long while now, but instead we just got ice. The good news is that I got out of work early yesterday, and am going in later today. Yay! Other than that, the ice is not so nice. I'm actually going to be heading out to work in about 10 minutes; the roads are still super icy and dangerous. So yeah, I'm a little nervous about driving. I'll be driving 5 mph the whole way there, even if it takes an hour (normally it's a 15 minute drive)! :) I was able to take a few pictures from the balcony outside, because there was no way I was going to risk the walk down the stairs just to take pictures. Arthur agreed to take the dogs out this morning for their walks, he did well on the stairs but fell as soon as he stepped onto the parking lot. Whoopsies! He's alright. Better him than me, as I always say...

I put this little sign up last night as soon as the water started to freeze causing the stairs to be super dangerous. Aren't I sweet?!?

This morning I took these pictures. It almost looks like snow from here, but it's not. pooey!



The treacherous stairs (I hope I make it down them without falling today)!
