In which Chorus Skips Rehearsal

So, since last night, when I made it successfully to and from Chamber Choir rehearsal without undue difficulty on the roads, we have received another 4 or 5 inches of snow, and the wind has picked up still more, which has the effect of blowing the snow almost perfectly horizontally across the road. So I'm skipping Orchestral Choir rehearsal tonight; it's simply too stressful to drive through this stuff white-knuckling it the whole way, and that experience is not good for the spirits, I find. We are quite early in the rehearsal process for Orchestral Choir's next concert, so this is probably as good as it gets in terms of rehearsals to miss.

According to weather-related sources, this will be the worst of it (touch wood), and we should be seeing some respite, both in snow and in temperature, in the next 24 hours. I'm hoping that the major snowfall will have stopped by the time I get home tonight so that I can shovel without feeling as though I'll have to get up tomorrow morning and do it again. Maybe that's overly optimistic; I'm not sure.

Bad weather has this way of overtaking all other possible blog topics...
