After almost 3 years of nearly flawless drives that managed to dodge the bad winter weather already legendary along our Chicago-to-Cleveland route, especially in this 2013/2014 season of shattered rotten records, I was afraid that the Wheel of Karma wanted to lay some tire tracks. The weatherpersons were predicting a "wintry mix" would follow us overhead the whole way. And the weatherpersons were right, but it wasn't bad.
As soon as Ben climbed into the car Saturday afternoon (it was another quick in-on-Saturday/out-on-Sunday visit), he said, "Drive fast" and opened his window. Ben's never met a condition he didn't like -- to walk in, drive through with windows open, or discuss ("Ben, what's the weather like today?" "Today is snowy" was Saturday's answer).
And Ben looks more like Maynard G. Krebs with every visit:
Ben gets ready to open the windows and "drive fast" and the car's grill indicates what we will be driving fast through.
