Decisions, decisions. What to do, what to do?
Here is the dilemma: The National Weather has issued–no, I am not kidding, even though the calendar says it’s May–a Severe Weather Alert.
Rain turning to snow this afternoon. Heavy, wet snow. Two to five inches.
Here is what the travel people advise: A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR SNOW MEANS THAT PERIODS OF SNOW WILL CAUSE PRIMARILY TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR SNOW COVERED ROADS AND LIMITED VISIBILITIES…AND USE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING.
I am not happy about this. This weather forecast could mean many things. It could mean no snow at all. (You can’t necessarily trust weather forecasts. They can be 100% wrong.) It could mean a little rain; a moderate dusting of snow. It could mean an icy crazy in-the-ditch experience. It could mean a foot of snow. It could mean…just about anything.
I have a workshop in Marquette tomorrow. It’s been ages and ages since I’ve attended a workshop. This used to be one of my favorite extra-curricular activities! Not, though, in recent years.
The title of this workshop is BodyTalk Access class. The flyer says, “When the body talks to itself, it can heal itself.” It is a complete healthcare system that balances the body and mind on all levels: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. BodyTalk helps restore your body’s balance, allowing the body to heal itself naturally and quickly.”
I have wanted to attend this class for a few years now. Saw the flyer maybe three years ago in the Marquette Co-op and said, “Ah ha! Really want to attend this class.” Unfortunately it was a module class which meant it cost $1100. Sigh… not meant to happen.
However, this class costs less than $100 for eight hours and I signed up faster than the checkbook could figure out how to balance itself. (Not really! I am a Business Manager. The checkbook always has to balance itself.)
Therein lies the problem.
Should I get a motel in Marquette tonight? Avoid the entire hassle of driving through snow? I do not like driving in snow… There you have it. Some Yoopers (residents of the Upper Peninsula) insist that we are all avid drivers under beastly conditions. That we can all drive in one to two feet of wild-crazy-blowing snow without blinking.
I am thinking really seriously of getting that motel for the night. It’s only $44.00. And I could take the laptop computer and go to Starbucks again. And eat dinner at Sweetwater. And, and…maybe I should consult the checkbook before making a decision!
Stay tuned for further developments. Hope you enjoyed the remainder of the photos from the Day in the Swamp.
