Great driving advice, Nancy! It's definitely not my own skills I fear - it's every hot-dogging Dallasite who thinks their 4-wheel drive vehicle or massive SUV is all they need to get from point A to point B, LOL!

O boy did we get snow! and it is still snowing frown. The snow is all the way to the top of the car doors. Snow Plow trucks have been busy on main roads, so there is a few feet of snow on all our residential streets too. I have to admit it is beautiful, but wow lol.

Yesterday the highway and my entire town pretty much shut down due to the blizzard and all, now it's nice and sunny. But our poor cat can't go off the front porch since the snow is so deep!


I gave up the best thing that ever happened to me.

Sang on my way to work this morning at 5:30, it was the only thing that helped me keep my sanity or maybe not I was singing Slip sliding away LOL! 8 inches yesterday another couple this morning then rain which flooded the roads and is now freezing since the temps have dropped quickly around here. The rain didn't even have a chance to get rid of the snow! People are buying the salt for water purification systems to use since all of the road treatments are sold out!! There aren't any snow shovels, snow blowers, roof rakes or anything snow related left in the lowes that I work at!

NW Ohio
The official snow fall here in NW Ohio was supposedly 5" for last night but it looked like more than that plus rain in between. Winds were as high as 49 mph.

We live in the country so get a lot of drifting. Our 200 feet double wide driveway was 2 feet deep over most of it. I've had taller drifts over the years, but usually only around the house, never over the entire driveway like this time. It took me nearly 4 hours to clean it off with a large lawn tractor and snow blower. Now its supposed to go below zero in the next day or two

Chucki has really enjoyed it though, extra dad time. She's been sitting almost on the keyboard as I type this.

Spring, only 50 or so days away:)

My college has been canceled for tomorrow as well. This is a pretty rural area and s good chunk of the students at my college live out in the country, and I was told by someone who lives out there that the gravel roads are practically undrivable.

OK...I won't mention that it was sunny and near 80 here today. *ducks to dodge the snowballs being thrown at her*

Hahaha! Actually I enjoy the snow, it's just the cold I don't like too much.

My whole body is aching from all the shoveling frown. The snow was up to the windows on our cars in the drive way. We had to shovel out our front and back door to even get started out there. Hubby came down with ugly stomach flu so I had to do the whole thing myself, 6 very long hours lol.

I love the snow....just not the shoveling part hehe

Mandy did you catch the news tonight? There have been over 100 buildings with roof collapses or structural damages in Mass alone! Very scary. I'm so happy now that my husband kept clearing the roofs of the snow buildup. Now we have to try to deal with the ice damns in the morning. They are about 10 inches thick!! Going to try hot water to melt through in a couple of key places so the water has an outlet other than in the house! We're suppose to get mostly rain tomorrow turning to snow tomorrow night.

yes the building right next door today was evacuated, police taped off and everything. Its really scary. My work is on the first floor and above us is a paint selling office. So they have lots of weight to drop on us if it does come down. Just a little uncomforting right now!

Oh you guys, I feel for you! Our taste of winter this week here in Dallas has been horrible! 6 inches of snow on top of an inch of ice, and no melting will begin until today! They are also predicting a wintry mix tomorrow for the Super bowl - just great frown - and by Wednesday, we are supposed to have another round of snow! What's happening with the climate? I'm voting for the next mayor who pledges to add snowplows and salt stores to the city's arsenal smile

Global warming is a poor term for what's happening around the country. Global Freezing would be more apt!
