I swear I went downhill skiing while trying to walk off my front porch; I felt like I was on the bobsled team trying to navigate out of my driveway in my car; and I was on a cross-country ski course while trying to run outside – yes, that was me running through Pleasureville during the storm on Monday and thank you to all those drivers who felt it necessary to honk at me.
