The rain didn't make it this far inland.

Well, we are supposed to have our weekly storm of the century today.   Many businesses closed in advance yesterday.  Forecasting 6-10" of snow.  My workplace closed, but it is a telework day for me, and I am still expected to telework.  (Small price to pay working from home 3 days out of the week!)

The skeptic/cynic in me thinks that they are going way overboard hyping this storm.  We will see.  As long as the utilities stay on, I can be homebound for several days with no worries.

Snow is falling on top of ice that was already on the streets from the last storm.  Ice had melted off busier streets but still on side streets and driveways.  I have two back doors, both go onto decks.  The decks are solid ice.  So, the dogs toilet trips are getting rerouted through the walkout basement for the foreseeable future.

I've had enough of this crap!  C'mon Spring!

Glad to see you starting to thaw a little.

That's coming our way.  Got open mic tonight and should be -5 and load out time, just enough to freeze putting stuff away.  In the morrow somewhere between -20 and -30 WCF to start the day of right!

Some brutal temps, Ken!    The weather guys got this one right.  We got dumped on.  Total of 10-12"  Put a new drive belt on my little snowblower, and it is working like a beast!  Very dry, powdery snow.  Great for the snowblower.  Cleaned the driveway twice yesterday.  And there was a fresh 6" or so this morning to knock out.

The snowstorm was ahead of a cold front.  Cold front swept through last night and the sky is now clear, but cold.  We are at +5 at 7am this morning, expecting lows of -2 for the next couple days.  Highs in the teens.  No warm up in sight.

Can't wait for this freezing hell to be over.  Mild snow fall today of 3.2 inches.  I have to get a few pics of the snow for y'all.  Most of the mail boxes in our neighborhood are under the drifts.  There are a few in the country that are 16-18 feet.

You CA guys are killing me.   It is 5 here this morning.

Forecasted to finally get above freezing tomorrow at a balmy 34!!!  I think we may go on a picnic.  Then back to the deep freeze of single digit lows and teen highs.

The only bright spot--  Since I've been burning some extra calories doing snow removal, been enjoying some good savory cold weather food.  Biscuits and sausage gravy, Chili, Potato Soup w/bacon, Chicken and Dumplings.  And the occasional Hot Toddy or Hot Buttered Rum.

34 sounds like a freakin sauna.  -9 without WCF on the way to work.  the weather channel said -22 with WCF, so we missed the deep freeze by a little.  Glad you guys in cali are experiencing this vortex too.
