Snow….oh no!

Not looking forward to the approaching winter storm with its 8 to 18 inches of snow. We are told it should arrive sometime after 8:30 p.m.

Way too much snow for Lucy and me

Lucy ready for snow…not really. She hates it!

Does this dog look thrilled with the idea of going outside in the snow? I think not.

So the snow finally slowed down…almost stopped…

The day before yesterday, our yard was clear of snow…

Today we’re supposed to hit fifty degrees. Oh, please, please, please let it be.

You all have a good one!

Has anyone seen Spring? Please send her our way.

HPIM3647     Overnight 4 more inches of snow arrived.  Forecast for Wednesday is rain and ice.  Do we look as though we need more crap?

 

You have to be EFFING kidding me!

HPIM3653     Our street finally gets cleared when we get this notice:

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY MEANS THAT PERIODS OF SNOW. WILL CAUSE TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR SLIPPERY ROADS AND LIMITED VISIBILITIES…AND USE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING. GIVE YOURSELF MORE TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION ON TUESDAY MORNING. DOUBLING OF COMMUTING TIMES IS NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION. DO NOT TAILGATE.

Yes, another ‘weather’ post.

     They didn’t get our street cleared of snow yesterday, instead they changed the no parking this street signs to today.  We’ll see what happens.  I for one would not be unhappy to wake to the noise of snowplows on our street.

     We’ve sort of kept count and there have been over 20 cars stuck in the snow and ice out front over the last few days.  If you don’t have to, don’t drive down our street!  <Giggle>  I even canceled my dentist appointment because the street is THAT bad.

     Listening to another car spinning its tires out front.  Really?  You haven’t heard how bad this street is?

HPIM3632Before the last storm…

And…yes, you got it! Another day of snow.
