Snow again!

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

We got hit with another big storm today. I did not make it into work today. The road that I live on was almost impassable, and the major routes that I take to work were closed. The last time I measured, we were at 15 inches, and it was the last one that I was able to get before the snow started drifting. I shoveled for 3 hours today, trying to open up the porch, and get around the cars. I had to have my husband pull the tractor up so that I could fill the bucket with snow, because I could not lift the snow up anymore. The piles are above my head now that my hubby cleared the driveway.

I am sitting here listening to the wind howling, and to go out now is almost impossible. The wind is just whipping the snow around. Tomorrow is going to be another day of cleaning up. Wonder if I am going to make it into work again tomorrow. They still had not plowed our road at 8:30 this evening, there are ruts now in the road, but I do not feel comfortable enough driving my hubby's truck to risk it if it has not been plowed. I may end up working a double on Friday to make up for the people who had to stay today to work for me.

I will try to get pictures from this storm out tomorrow. Still want to take some more!

I am very tired from all the shoveling and walking around I did in the snow. Going to get into the jacuzzi and get ready for bed! Have a great night all!

    I measured 15 while it was still snowing yesterday, and the dog kept barking at the wind last night. Glad I did some shoveling yesterday, but my garage is snowed in, and the car is in the garage! It will be several days till I get it all dug out!

    Wow, I keep seeing on the news what these two storms are doing in the US northeast - hopefully this will be the last for you. Am looking forward to seeing the pics though. Wolf Blitzer went out on the balcony of the CNN Washington office at 5:00 p.m. tonight and there wasn't a car or a person to see anywhere - unusual for "rush hour" - I don't think you're the only person who stayed home!! Take Care - just think of the muscles you are building doing all that shovelling, but watch your back!!!

    I can't wait to see your pictures!! Snow can be so pretty!! And yet so darn frustrating!! I am glad you chose the safe option when it came to driving!! Stay safe and warm!!

    I keep dreaming about the beach and the feeling of the sun on my back!! Of course, slathered in SPF 5000!
