Well, we survived the great blizzard of '09. Over a foot of snow, 50+ mph wind gusts, and dangerous wind chills. Since we had all that within 48 hours, I'm thinking we should now get 48 days of 60 degree weather. Yes, I'd like it warmer than that, but I don't want to be too greedy.
The biggest problem we are having with this storm is the dogs. They go out and after a short time they get ice in the crevices of their paw pads and then they can't walk. And, of course, it always happens as they do a little "Bichon Blitz" action and they are 50 out in the yard and I have to go out and get them.
Today the snow plows finally came down our gravel road, so we are free! This evening, Austin & I convinced Jay that we needed to get out of this house. Off we went to Target.
I did need a few things like paper towels, a flash drive, etc, but I would have been content to go anywhere at that point.
The roads weren't too bad, but we did see the remnants of the storm. We saw many cars in the ditches and an overturned semi was on the side of the road. We heard on the news a fatal accident had involved a semi, so we're guessing that was the one. So sad.
So that's been our excitement the past few days. I know...we live the rockstar lifestyle! ha!
How did you do doing the storm? Did you beat our 12" of snow?
