Oh goody. More snow.

Sigh. The best part is that there is a layer of rain water under the snow, which the impending cold front will freeze, turning the roads into ice rinks. Oh, and there’s another wind storm coming. Joy. I think I can understand the Sumerians’ wish to believe that they could slaughter a few goats and make it all better.

Snow again

    Well, it looks pretty anyway….It is sunny and abnormally warm here. However you must be sending cold thoughts south as we are dur for freezing rain pellets (I hope not as it will interfere with my trip to the bookstore later this week) and snow. Where was that goat you mentioned?

    I hope this is what our yard looks like this weekend! I'm trying not to get my hopes up as the weathermen are often disappointingly wrong.

    Snow? What's that? Never seent the stuff. :-O

    At least it's not 60cm like last time. And that big shiny ball in the sky is supposed to make an appearance tomorrow. I'm beginning to understand sun worship too.

    I want snow! We've gotten less than 10 inches for the entire season and our average is 56. Something is very wrong.

    Looks like it's going to be cold the next couple of days too.
    -12c at 8am tomorrow morning. I might stay home and go in later methinks.

  7. Sylvia says:

    -12?! I hope that's with the wind chill! Ya, the commute tomorrow will be brutal. Stay safe out there!

    I was happy about our snowfall for about 8 hours and now am finding it a bit much. Nothing like what you're having over there now.

    More snow?!? Wow. How much does your neck of the woods usually get?
    Here, the roads have largely cleared, but the snow's still piled high elsewhere, and we might get more tomorrow. Very weird. We're used to some snow, but not this much.

    We usually get a couple of moderate snow falls per year, but it's usually mild so the snow melts in a day or two. To have large amounts of snow and cold temperatures is unusual. Actually it's more driveable when it's cold. When it hovers around zero, melting and re-freezing, things go terribly wrong. Roads that look bare and wet can be wet one minute and a sheet of ice the next. This has been a good year for body shops and tow trucks. AFAIK there's been only one major injury accident, though. It's hard to get hurt when you're slowly sliding backwards down a hill.
