I knew it was supposed to snow last night and through today- but OMG!
Heavy, wet and several inches deep- I am in hell. Now, if I could have stayed home and enjoyed it from the warmth of my home- it would be nice to look at, but NO, I had to leave for work.
Getting the snow off my car is not such a big deal- but the snow was so heavy that a lilac bush next to my car had collapsed and blocked the drivers side door. OK, so I get in on the other side, slipe and slide my way down the driveway- and take a look around-
Broken branches all over, snapped clean off by the heavy snow, and a portion of the fence around the property has caved in as well. Trees are bowed to the ground, it'a THAT heavy!
I barely made it up the hill (I am getting new tires this weekend- thank God for payday)- and then when I hit the main road it was so icy that I was going less than 5 miles an hour, inching my way (literally) up the hill. As I hit the top I saw another car (4-wheel drive by the looks of it) backwards in the ditch. I was very grateful to still be on the road!
I crawled to work going about 30 MPH- once I was on the larger roads they were better plowed. As I type it is still snowing- not sure what the forecast is right now- but I am so grateful that I have tomorrow off. I'm calling my own snow day! Not going anywhere if at all possible!!
I will post some pics later- when I get home and can get some good shots. Of course, when I get home I may not make it up the driveway unless Dad gets out and gets it plowed- *sigh*
Yesterday the first snowfall was a magical mythical thing- and now it is just another misery!
