It rained today. Hard. Rained and rained and blew and blew. I felt like my jeep was going to blow right off the bridge into the canal on the way to work today. Though the temperature was a little warmer than earlier in the week, I was freezing all day. It didn't help to look out the window and see the sheets of rain blowing sideways.
Worse than the rain was the slop that was 16 inches of snow 2 days ago. The slushy mess was only made worse by all the sand that was dumped on the sidewalks and parking lot outside. Every time anyone used a treatment mat, it immediately was covered with dirt that never was wiped up completely. And it felt like I was crunching around the floor.
Nothing says January like stepping in a freezing cold puddle and having the water and sandy slush seep over the top of your shoes, soaking your ankles and socks! It was quite an uncomfortable ride home.
Despite this, it was a pretty good day at work. I am only hoping that it is not raining on the day of the marathon!
