a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Wednesday Weather Update...

Maybe we might have snow...duh!!!!!  It has snowed all day.  I was a dedicated employee and was at work on time.  Could not have done it without Hubby and his assistant, Andrew.  No school, of course.
Going out was not as bad
as coming home.
This is the same stretch of road, notice the combine.  It has snowed all day and the only thing that saved us was the flakes were tiny and dry.  We have around six inches and it's still snowing.  I know, I know, that is not even enough snow to sneeze at but here, it is crippling. 
The state and  county have been running blades all day and  the road is still covered.  I cleaned the walk at work three times and finally gave up.  Tomorrow I think I will use my driver again.

My poor car did not even get the snow swept off it.  It shall be a cocoon until Friday when, it is rumored, the temperatures will be in the fifties.
This was one evening I was glad to kick my boots off.  I shall warm by the fire and dream of wearing flip flops this weekend.

I see me some Fat Baby Boots! I wouldn't mind having those two gentlemen escorting me in the snow. Ida trust them with my life. Gail, can you wear your Fat Babies to work?

Mel said...

We originally thought, we were getting away with a mild winter, NOT!

Six inches of snow would be enough for me to not have a good day. Driving in it wouldn't make me to thrilled. I'd hate to have to go to work in it every day. It does look pretty, though. It looks like you're not done with winter yet.

Yuk you look just as dismal there as we do here.I shouldn't complain though we had three days of beautiful blue sky...with that came -26 but hey it could be worse and is for a lot of other people so stay warm and stay safe.

6" of snow would shut our town down. Heck, 3" would do it. It's beautiful to look at, but I wouldn't like the cold.

Six inches is a LOT if you ask me. I know it isn’t in the scheme of 2011 blizzard but it’s enough. These are great pics--although I know you are getting sick of all this. Your employer is very lucky to have you :)

You need some proper snow boots instead of those fancy ones..six inches of snow..that isn't very much..but I understand you guys don't have so many snowplows:(

Rudee said...

I empathize. I'm thrilled to be able to wear flip flops next week.

LindaG said...

6 inches is plenty in LOTS of places.
Go groundhog! ;)

God bless ya sweetie and I'm so glad you have a dedicated 'crew' to chauffeur your beautiful self around! :o)

Ahhh Gail..there is something to be said for retirement. I love looking in snow, not driving in it. I would love to watch it out a window as long as I was toasted and cozy inside.
Mercy, but I have become a namby pamby! I guess at 76 I'm allowed.
Stay safe and I'm glad you have drivers..REALLY glad!

p.s. Supposed to get some rain in Southern California..but we shall see..so toasty and warm out there that it's sort of hard to believe the predictions of all that cold.
