What's this "white stuff"???

Silly me, I'm flying to Vermont on Saturday. Driving to FKO on Wednesday. I've been checking out the weather channel. I think I'm in for a rude awakening.

There is a forecast for snow! You know that "white stuff". I don't do "white stuff". This is going to be interesting. If there will be a lot of "white stuff", I'm in trouble. greenmtnboy18, I have driven in "white stuff" once or twice in my ENTIRE LIFE and then it was very light. You have been warned. =)

Also? The high for many of the days is going to be 32 F. I'm planning on going to the cult gym while I'm out there. It's a 2 mile walk from the FKO hotel to the nearest gym. I don't think my sneakers are going to cut it. Nope, nope, nope. I think I need to go find some boots. Oh? And maybe pack sweatpants... Walking around in shorts is probably not a good idea either.

Eek! No, you do NOT want to walk two miles in the snow in sneakers! Your poor little toes will be VERY uncomfortable.

You'll be fiiiiiiiiine! Trust me! Would *I* lie to *you*? ;-D

Okay, all Charles Grodin impressions aside, *g*, it'll be fine, really. :-) I've got 4wheel drive, and I've driven in snow all my life. Also, the weather is a swiftly moving target at the moment. Only yesterday they were calling for freezing rain on Friday, now the forecase is snow... I'm not sure what we'll end up with. They aren't calling for accumulation, so I'm guessing it's going to be mostly snow showers, without build up.

Still, you may not want to walk to the gym on Sunday or Monday, and I/we will be happy to ensure you get there. Also, once at FKO, if it's snowy in Toronto, you can use my car to go to the gym if you want. :-)

What size are your feet? With the amount of boots we have in our family, we may be able to provide you with a pair.

I just wanted to give you a heads up that I am unfamiliar with driving in snow conditions. Light or otherwise. Rain, yes.

re: gym - it's the driving in snow that worries me.

my feet? I wear between a 6 & 6 1/2 WIDE

Wimp :) Seriously, I'm sure it will be fine. But I agree with the others, definitley take sweat pants and try to have something other than tennis shoes if you are going to have to walk in snow.

You've been here when it's snowed before and it didn't bother you. In fact I remember a very ineffectual snowball being thrown at me. *g*

I like snow. I just don't know how to drive in it.

I did manage to get you with the accumulated drift at the top of the stairs. Bombs away!

Vermont is a BIT too far for me to try to catch a glimpse of you, no? Sigh. But in fact, this "white stuff" will probably be flying sideways through the air, fascinating but not frightening. If it's like the first weekend we were here. If, on the other hand, it starts in the night and there is no wind to toss it around, then it may sit on the ground for a day. Down here in PA, that is what would happen. Not sure about the frigid north. Ask Steve?

Good luck, what's an FKO and have fun!

What is FKO? I feel like I should know, but....

Are you going to be in Vermont long? I'm flying into Oakland on the 24th for a week and thought we might be able to meet for lunch or something.

This is crazy, but I checked my My Space and saw that today Erika is 20. Yikes!
