Ahem, ok. Got the car rented, it's a Ford Focus; which I'm relieved about. I've seen Focuses handle ok in snow before, and the going out is going to be snowy. I'm going to make sure we gat their safely, not speedily, though, and will use cell phone as needed (it will be hooked up to charger in car the whole way). The driving in the blizzard tonight has already gone well, too :)
I got groceries for trip, much water and rice milk for the road, and supplies for turkey day. I even found time after packing and loading the car to make a new driving mix cd (all techno/ebm/synthpop, all the time, thump thump thump). The car does have cd player internal, so all is love.
i'm going to philly!!!!!!! it's been a year! i miss it!! yay!!!!!
