The kids have had 5 snow days. I had to look up the number because I lost track!
The latest snow was the worst - 10" on top of snow that was already on the ground. I don't know about everyone else, but we're out of room to put it. Our driveway is in a hole with walls on each side.
Before the big snow...my husband's sculpture looked like this:
Right before it got dark! Everything was really quite!
Two days after the big snowfall, it took me 45 minutes to get home from work. It usually takes me 11 minutes. The streets were and are horrible. It's been a long time, since we've gotten that much snow. When the plows were out, it was in the thick of it. The wind was blowing everywhere. They have to try and clear the streets because some people like doctors, nurses, police officers, firefighters, and so on have to go to work. The snow just drifted everywhere. The temperature dropped, so no salt was working. Everything was turning to ice. Downtown has 1 lane roads; when they usually have 2. Cars were stuck here and there all over.
Watch your step, black ice!
I have never worn my rain boots more than I have this year. This kind of ice is fun to step on.
Ice is hanging from my front porch. When I drive I hear crackling and shattering noises. It's not glass! Ice is falling to the ground. I literally have carcicles.
Ice or claws?
Has it snowed where you live? I know we're not alone. My friends in Missouri have gotten it too!
