Platform 9 3/4
We’ve gotten spoiled by this lovely mild winter! Today we finally got a substantial snow, and it was horrible. I got off the turnpike just as a squall was settling into the valley. A little snow while on the turnpike is not bad. A little the snow flying past the car makes me pretend I’m driving at warp speed. Tonight there was a lot of snow and it was coming down fast so I slowed way down until I was finally crawling from sign to sign. I got to where I wasn’t sure where the overpass was and didn’t want to run into it. Then I imagined going into a ravine and my family wouldn’t know where I was. That’s when my arms started to fall asleep. It was just like my recurring nightmares about driving and not being able to see. I saw a flashing red neon sign and pulled into what I hoped was a parking space. And it was, of the Casino Inn. At that point I decided that having my car buried in snow wouldn’t be so bad compared to the alternative which I won’t mention here because my sister reads my blog and I’m sure I’ve already said enough terrifying things to keep her and my mother awake for weeks.
Let’s lighten the mood with a looping gif of Minimike and Mike running into Platform 9 3/4 to get to the Hogwarts Express.
