This morning at 5:00 a.m.
It is still snowing. We probably have about 4-5 inches. The ground was warm enough that the streets don't appear to be slick but I haven't ventured out on the roads yet. In honor of the snow, my weekend re-run will take us all the way back to March 1 of 2009 when we had our last major snowfall. Enjoy.
They are calling for 4-8 inches of snow by tomorrow morning. In our area of the country, if this prediction comes true, things will come to a standstill. Those that do venture out will be at the mercy of those who have no business being on the roads. There will be accidents galore. Our twisty, curvy roads weren't built for this type of weather. We do not have the equipment to remove snow from the roads. Our trucks do their best to spread "slag" but usually only on major thoroughfares. Coming home from work tonight, I found the roads to be extremely treacherous despite driving a 4 wheel drive SUV. But until the mayhem of tomorrow morning, I thought I'd treat you all to, what is for us, a rarity...the beautiful silence of freshly falling snow.
