Default Schnooooow!

As of 8:20 am, looks like there's about 6" of snow on the back yard, and
it is still schnoooowing. The local grocery stores were jammed late
yesterday afternoon, with folks buying as if they were planning to wagon
train it through the Donner Pass and didn't want to resort to
cannibalism for the one day the roads might be problematical.

Geeze. Some people experience some nuisance flurries and they
freak out. :-)

We've been lucky so far this winter. (Knock on wood). No snow to speak
of although I sure would like it to be a little warmer.

Geeze.* Some people experience some nuisance flurries and they

I made a store run late yesterday to pick up a half-dozen items we
already needed, and every lane in the checkout area was full. Guy in
front of me had *TWO* full carts of groceries. The quick checkout lane
was at least a dozen and a half shoppers deep.

I really don't get it...even in the worst of storms, with 20+ inches of
the stuff, the county and state road crews have it plowed out in a day
or at worst, a day and a half. If it is really bad, we don't go out
until our landscape guy comes by with his plow, and that's usually no
later than the 2nd day. Crikey, you'd think everyone has at least two
days supply of food and toilet paper in the house, right?

My backyard mini-weather-station (an outdoor thermometer) says it is
26F. Chilly, but no wind. Could be worse.

It must have stopped in Huntingtown. My niece says it turned to rain
in Ridge.

Now I remember why I left.



Yeah. 16F gets colder with every year that goes by.

Cold here. 44 and rain coming tomorrow. Tomorrow’s rain could suck, as
have to be at a hospital 18 miles away at 8am for wife’s colonoscopy.
Nasty commute freeway traffic at that hour.
