Snow, snow, and more snow…and another scene dilemma

We got snow.  Lots of snow.  My neighbor plowed out my driveway last night around 9. By 11, you couldn’t even tell he had plowed.  This morning I attempted to leave for work at 8 this morning and got stuck in my driveway. 

I’m currently driving a little Honda Civic while my van is in the shop.  I’m discovering I really don’t like this little car.  It’s too small and I feel like my butt’s practically scraping the road when I drive.  I had a foot of snow in the drive, and the bottom of the Civic is only about 6 inches from the ground, seriously.  I managed to back out and straighten but then got stuck halfway to the road.  I tried rocking the car back and forth and finally was able to floor it and shoot out the drive.  Thankfully no one was coming. 

Once I got out onto the road, only one side was passable.  Again, thankfully no one was coming from the other direction.  If there had been, we’d have been stuck.  On the road.  You couldn’t pull into anyone’s drive and you couldn’t pull off anywhere or you’d get stuck.  Only my manager and I were at work in our department this morning.  And we were busy with lots of admissions. 

Last night I wrote some more.  I’m on page 287 and on the last day’s events of the book.  I’m so near the end, I can taste it.  Tora’s boyfriend is currently in France dealing with his own issues.  Tora, however, went in a different direction.  I’m not sure if I’m going to keep things the way they are or somehow work them in.  To make a long story short, she’s falling for a different guy while her guy is gone.  She’s actually liked this other guy for some time but she’s with someone else, and she doesn’t want to just dump her boyfriend.      Hmmm…what to do?  Keep the scene as is and create more tension especially when the boyfriend comes back?  That could be an option…
