I decided to wait until the morning to write this (I usually write my post the night - or days - before) since I wasn’t sure what kind of mess I was going to wake up to (it was coming down pretty heavy when I finally went to bed). Well, we certainly didn’t get the 12 inches that was predicted (only about 4½, whew!). Of course, it’s also still snowing, so who knows? I’ll probably continue to take pictures throughout the day, but nothing further than the house. The husband decided to take my 4WD SUV to work and I refuse to go out in the snow in anything but!
|Ah, look! It's snowing!|
It was supposed to snow all day Sunday, so when it started a little before noon, I got a little nervous. Then it stopped (right around the end of the OSU game) and we got a few hours break.
|Inbetween storms - decided to get the trash out before|
it got too nasty out there!
Once the sun set, it started sleeting outside, but for only a short while (kind of glad--I hate ice worse than snow). The heavy stuff hit when it was too dark to take any decent pictures. But I managed.
|By now the roads are getting covered. I'd have zoomed in|
closer, but it was too dark.
|As you can see, the flash don't work so good!!|
Wonder what all those white dots are? :)
|This morning (I think our paper was actually delivered!).|
4" of white stuff. More to come. Ugh!
Pictures aren't super-duper great, but I kind of like how I made the trash can and recycle bin reference points. Probably the first time I've ever been smart enough to think of it before it was too late.
Schools are closed today, but I still expect my son to come over tonight since I’m cooking his lasagna for dinner (yum!). The roads will be clear by then anyway. Besides, he loves the snow, so he can drive in it.
Heck, all this snow will probably be gone in a couple of days. At least, I HOPE so. I want some WARM weather!!!
