Winter Wonderland

About a week ago, we awoke to quite a little mess. The forecast was for 3-6 inches of snow, followed by sleet, freezing rain and maybe a little rain. Sadly they were very mistaken. Sleet and freezing rain fell for 12 plus hours. We were quite lucky not to lose power.

So when the sun came out the following day, it made for some fairly spectacular photos.

Unfortunately, it also made for some fairly treacherous conditions. I chipped at the ice on my driveway for 3 hours and managed to clean up just a 5 square foot patch. That’s when I realized that I wasn’t going anywhere until the ice melted–maybe 5 days from now.

I went inside and cancelled all my appointments.

Luckily a warmup is coming just before Christmas so I can get out and buy dinner. By then, my cupboards will be a little bare.

    No argument from me. It took me 6 days (& 1 broken snow broom) just to chip the ice off my car so it was driveable. This one was awful. Just give me some good old fashioned snow!
