1. Your winter shoes (the ones with the thick rubber souls and really deep tread) have a teeny little hole on the bottom where the rubber cracked, leaving your stocking foot cold and wet.
2. The salt you thought they put down on the parking deck is non-existent (or at least is safely encased in ice)
3. Because you were running late this morning you didn't get a parking spot in the covered deck...which means you have four or five hours of ice accumulation has coated your car in a thick-enough sheet of ice that you need to spend about 15 minutes chipping out your car.
4. Because you were running late this morning you didn't get a chance to put a precautionary layer of salt on the steps or driveway, which means both areas are as as slick as a rink.
Freezing rain. I hate it, but I can't do anything about it. I'm safe now...laundry is in its final rinse, supper is finished and all that's left is dessert before starting on homework. Tonight it's spiked hot cocoa. No special recipe--Godiva's dark truffle cocoa made with milk and a four-count of Bailey's Irish Cream...mmm chocolate and Bailey's...so comforting and yummy.
I guess I should have done my homework before opening the B's.
