Winter has come in like a fucking bear. We've been in a deep freeze made worse by the fact it's always cold in the Warehouse of Misfit Toys. We're currently under a "wintery weather advisory", which translates as "prepare for ALL the shit."
The original forecast was that it was supposed to warm up last night, dump a metric fuckton of snow, keep warming into sleet, then frozen rain, re-freeze and go back to snow. All between Midnight last night and Midnight tonight.
I had such high hopes. The temperature had gone up 10 degrees while I was at rehearsal and 8 or 10 flakes of snow were gently wafting down. I so, so hoped it would have the worst out of its system by the time I woke up this morning. But, no. Just the same 8 or 12 snowflakes blowing around. I didn't even have to scrape my windshield.
Nope, it had to wait and start pissing down rain when I got to work. You can actually HEAR it freezing when it hits the ground. This bodes so ill for driving and having an audience at the show tonight.
