It’s really comin’ down out there…

I had intended to answer all of the great comments on the Armitage ἠθοποιοφόρος post this afternoon but then this happened:

    I would get home fast if I were you.

  2. Guylty says:

    I take it you made it home? Looks like proper winter over there. Maybe you’ll be snowed in tomorrow, and unable to drive to work??? *hope*

      I did – put me new (to me anyway) Volvo AWD through its paces!!

    • obscura says:

      If there’s nothing else, this storm will be well cleaned up before morning…but, there’s always the prediction of 40mph winds and drifting snow to hope for 😜

        The county just facebooked that they have 42 plows out there. So if we can’t get out tomorrow, it won’t be the county’s fault. Or my dad’s. he’s out plowing too.

          Hubs is just finishing up blowing the neighbor’s yard…such a Samaritan!!

            Not that they’re not great guys, but do you ever wonder if part of it’s because they like playing with their snow toys?

          • obscura says:

            Considering that dishes can sit in the sink for days and he will repeatedly walk past a full trash can, I think there is definitely something to the snow toy theory!

    Hope you’re safely home. I think you are on to something with the snow toy thing! Boys and their toys, eh? 😀

  4. Esther says:

    Thank goodness you got home alright.

    • obscura says:

      Thanks!! It really turned into much ado about not very much. I think the final total I saw was 4.5″…that is not a big snowfall for us. The problem is usually that far too many people are not prepared to change the way they drive to account for the deteriorating road conditions. #slowdownspeedy

    Glad you made it home ok and was ok with the new car, must be stressful driving first time in it through snow. Phew hope the winds don’t blow the snow all back, tends to happen at home…
    Stay warm and safe, fingers crossed! Snow toys seem to be more interesting to men than grass cutting toys 😉

    Here we just have terrible winds! Thank God as snow is a killer here as they have neither the equipment to clear it nor do people even have tires to be out in it, it just shuts everything down. Winds we survive..

      It wasn’t bad…I’m not a terribly hesitant driver to begin with, and there wasn’t much traffic, so I was able to test out how the car would handle braking, sliding etc. She did well 🙂

      The only benefit of heavy, wet snow (beside snowballs, snow men and snowforts) is that it doesn’t really blow around and drift much. It seems like the worst of what we were supposed to get was either not as bad as predicted, or missed us.

      They snow machinery is absolutely more interesting to my hubs…he doesn’t have the same desire to “play” with the lawnmower in the summer – but then, maybe it’s just the heat…

      • Hariclea says:

        that’s good, snow is fun, but not when it is excessive 😉 Back home get much more polar temperatures and strong winds at the same time, roads have big panels on the sides in some areas to help keep some of the snow off the roads when the wind blows, brr!
        Shame about the mower, you could sit on the porch admire his sweaty body at work 😉
