February 2018

What do you do when the skies dump 10 inches of snow on you? You get up early in the morning, travel 1.5 hours past half a dozen cars that have slid off the road to an off road park, and drive your car at the off road park with all your rallycross friends, desperately trying to keep out of the snow banks lest you have to call the pickup truck to tow you out. This was my first time ever at Bundy Hill. I always thought I’d first come here with a Jeep, but I suppose a Fiesta ST works in a pinch under very specific circumstances. Only got four runs today, as most of the RWD and AWD (surprise!) cars kept getting stuck and requiring tows. The only instance where FWD proved to be the snow bank avoidance vehicle of choice, haha. =P

The nice thing about living next to work is that even during a winter storm warning, doubling my commute time to an agonizing eight minutes is still very doable. (The sacrifices one makes for a career!) I drove in to work so I wouldn’t be cooped up at home getting cabin fever, but it looks like there won’t be much human interaction at the office today either. Instead of parking in the farthest corner of the lot like I usually do, I took an EXECUTIVE SPOT by the front door. Also, like the consummate BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL that I am, I did some flowy handbrake turns into and around the parking lot before walking into a building with about a dozen people in its entirety.
