I’m not complaining about the snow because we missed the ice. We can deal with snow. We can deal with tons of snow! The National Guard has been activated and the local car dealership loaned the police a couple of four wheel drive vehicle, so things are moving right along.
We had near white out conditions much of the day.
As evening arrived, the snow seemed to slack off a bit. During the day, a few cars went down the road, the snow plow went by a few times, other than that . . not much activity in my part of town. Vince rode to work with a friend but didn’t stay all day. Another friend brought him home but gave up before they got to our street and Vince had to walk two blocks. He was huffing and puffing and covered in snow when he got home. It’s not easy walking through 18 – 20″ of snow.
It’s really hard to take good pictures through the window but other than a few quick trips out with Speck, I have not been outside. Vince took care of the chickens.
I haven’t heard how much snow we got but it’s probably around 20″. In areas where its’ blown and drifted, there are places where it’s several feet deep. Convincing Speck to go out in that is not easy. This happens so rarely here that most people don’t have snow blowers and this is SO much snow to try moving with a shovel. We may never get our vehicles out of the garage!
