In a bizarre turnaround it's slightly warmer where I am* than in Olympia. I set out at about 1:30, and the closer I got to Olympia the worse the roads got until they were reduced to one snow and ice covered rutted track. At that point it began snowing hard, so I decided it would stupid to continue as it doesn't matter what's there or what's at my house if in between it's just a frozen mess at rush hour in the dark.
I should go and eat something.
*It's usually slightly colder and more snowy here, and the snow/ice usually lasts much longer as it's the hinterlands. It's only 500 ft here a Summit Lake, but Olympia is on salt water which helps it.
