You may have heard about our blizzard here on the East Coast. Let me tell you we are not used to that kind of winter weather here.
Oh yeah, sure we get snow every year but this time we got
As in 14-20" inches of snow. I measured 14" on my deck but it was still snowing so I don't even know what the final tally was at my house.
Nor do I care.
Cause even though it's breathtakingly beautiful, it was also dangerous, expensive & messy. Not to mention extremely inconvenient since it took place the last weekend before Christmas.
It started on Friday around 2 in the afternoon and by 3 it was already covering the ground. It came down fast & sticky.** The snow fell for the rest of the night on Friday and well into Saturday before it stopped.
Because it was SO much (and VDOT was sorely unprepared) we were stuck in the house the whole weekend and Monday. I finally left the house yesterday afternoon but the roads were still not great. Even today with the sun out it will not melt much, and what does melt will become ice as soon as the sun goes down.
The expensive part (this is our dog's kennel where the roof collapsed)
The beautiful part
And Monday morning
Topping off all this, they are now calling for wintry mix/freezing rain on Thursday & Friday. Oh joy.
To all those people who yell "Let it snow!" you can SUCK IT! And I mean that from the bottom of my frozen heart.
