No pictures today. It's a cold, cold grey day here. I woke up to a temp of 13 degrees, and it's only up to 20 degrees right now. The fog here has lifted a little, so the sky is just a blah grey.
The drive to class this morning was quite eventful. First, I skidded pulling into Wayne's to feed his horses. So now Clyde's driving....it's a lot safer that way. (Whole other story why I'm doing the driving right now.) Then, in Monument, guess what? There were only about 3-4 vendors at the farmers market, and the pastry lady from Castle Rock couldn't get here because the the pileup on I-25 at Larkspur. So, McDonald's it was.
In McDonald's we heard about the freeway being closed going north, and that it was closed going south of Colorado Springs. And when we started down to class, there was an accident on the freeway. We got off at Briargate Parkway, went down to Academy and got back on. Ok, not so bad.
Uneventful all the way down to the Bijou exit. Cops in the turn lanes to go east. Bridge closed.
Tow truck manuvering to get a pickup off the bridge. Bus resting on a lamppost. Ok, so we went west, and turned to go down to the Colorado Street bridge. Guess what? Closed.
Now these are the two newest bridges over the freeway to get into downtown. Guess they made them too steep, they collect ice and become major hazards. Had to turn around and go all the way north to Uintah to go UNDER the freeway, then back south to ppcc campus.
After class, still foggy, bridge at Bijou still closed, firetrucks with lights and sirens heading north on the freeway (the direction we needed to go). Went back up to Uintah, turned east, and thru town to go back to Wayne's and feed horses and then home.
The house is cold, the outside is cold, it's snowing a little.....How much grayer can it get??
