Okay - yesterday was bliss - today it is not so fun. We just discovered a ticket on our car - like I wanted to leave it parked on the wrong side of the street? Would they have preferred I leave it in the middle where it was originally stuck for an hour?
I am not talking about a minor amount of snow on Russell avenue south. My brother came by today to pick something up and GOT STUCK for 45 minutes in a 4-wheel drive SUV! Sadly, I have a Mazda hatchback. I am not match for a 17" snow.
The "F-bomb" is flyin'.
But, really, how is it that Edina can plow it's streets (as I said yesterday...like a bikini wax) and Minneapolis can not? How can NYC remove snow so heroically and Minneapolis can not? How, really? If it was the first time, I'd go easy. But I know how bad it was last year with the ruts - my friend plummeted into a parked car because of them. This is just embarrassing. So don't tell me mr mayor it was the quantity of snow. We suck at snow removal. Period.
Even the mayor said there was amnesty this first day or so. Guess the asshole who gave me a ticket hadn't heard that. So now, I have a ticket and cannot get out without hiring it done. Which is all fine - I had planned to do that tomorrow morning. Couldn't they just have given us one more day of vacation from reality? I'm not impressed and I'm a good Democrat.
Lee just told me.....my transmission is gone and I have to replace it because of the fricking snow I got stuck in yesterday.
Now, I need to find a way to relax before I blow a gasket like I blew out my transmission. I said, "How can you and I have had such a great day and now I am so crabby about this?"
He responded, "Hey, I'd rather that you and I have a great day - and a car problem...than no car problems with you and I having a terrible day."
Okay. Feel better.
