It has been snowing like a mother since I got in to work today until about 30 minutes ago. The roads are not that bad but all the traffic reports I have seen are terrible.
So I have been tidying up my office, cleaning other coworkers dishes, doing a virus scan, etc.. All in an effort to keep myself busy while sitting here waiting until traffic is a little more sensible to drive in. I would throw on my running clothes and go run but none of the sidewalks downtown are cleared and there are plenty of cars swerving all over the place making me want to avoid the roads. And I think sitting in traffic for an hour is just pointless when I can at least do semi-productive things around here. If the traffic doesn't get better in the next 30 I may go eat somewhere downtown...
I am hoping once I get home that I can get out into the snow for a quick run and then I think I might just make a snowman. Ahh the joys of owning a yard!!!
Met one of the neighbors last night (and her dog). She seems nice. I think a lot of the neighborhood is dog homes but she pointed out a few cat friendly homes, said she had noticed my boys in the windows. Not too surprising although they are a wee bit big for the ledges.
On a running note I am skipping out on the Buckeye 50k in jan. I am going to hold off and do a 50k next winter or summer 2007.
For all you people out west I am going to be in Arizona (Scottsdale) for a week in January and I want to run on some good trails. Any recommendations?
