We spent a lovely weekend in Santa Fe. I’ve been catching up on various things and getting back on work schedule. I’ve also figured out what classes I’m registering for in the summer session and I’m looking forward to a more regular schedule again.

I’m going to leave my TV and yoga natters for the end of the week (for the most part) and I’m going to post my Santa Fe pics instead!

One more way in which Leadville is superior to Saginaw: when we got home, one of our neighbors had plowed our driveway for us. Out of the goodness of their heart, without being asked.

I love this place.

Santa Fe was very nice and very relaxing. While I’m in the process of uploading pictures, I will leave you with this hilarious dog story.

1. DON’T PANIC. Whiteouts are typically caused by blowing snow. ‘Blowing’ means that intermittently you’ll probably be able to see.

2. DO NOT stop your car.

3. Drive as slowly as you think necessary but don’t pull over or stop. It increases your chances of getting hit and/or injured.

4. Turn on your effing lights. They won’t help YOU see, but they’ll help OTHER PEOPLE SEE YOU. See above.

5. Look for the sides of the road. Specifically, the right side of the road. If you have a hard time seeing, roll down the passenger window.

6. Don’t pass people. It’s a dumb idea.

7. Don’t tailgate. Same reason.
