The kids thought today would be a snow day. They did the little snow dance, they put spoons under their pillow, they put a white crayon in the freezer, and I think they even flushed an ice cube down the toilet, all in hopes for the elusive Snow Day. But, Mother Nature did not oblige yet.
So the question for me is when did we reach the tipping point where people are so self absorbed that they drive without brushing off their car. Now, maybe self absorbed is a little strong, and maybe some people think it is a bit presumptuous of me to tell other people that they need to brush off their car.
But is it not just a matter of safety? And a matter of helping those around you drive better in these poor conditions. If you already have 6 inches of snow on your car, do you think that the extra 5 minutes it takes to brush off your car are going to get you to your destination any faster? Chances are the road conditions are poor and slow, and you not brushing off your car are now adding to the pain the rest of us are going through.
Maybe we need to have a Snow Removal Awareness Month and use a White Ribbon??
