We are getting hammered right now. Woke to about 7 inches on the ground, but it wasn't snowing right then. By the time I got all my gear on to jump on the JD and blow it around it was snowing again and the wind was picking up.
I still went out and about 45 minutes later had the driveway cleared enough so LOML could take my 4WD Trailblazer to go to work in Madison, some 55 miles away. She left about 7 AM and was back by 7:45. She had gotten on the Interstate and gone one exit, 2 miles, when she decided to turn back. Only one lane plowed and way too many people trying to get somewhere, with traffic moving at about 20 MPH. She decided it would have taken until noon to get to work, which didn't make any sense.
I'd go visit my buddy, who has a place in Vegas and spends winters there, but, he had 6 inches of snow the other day too.
It's still coming down and they're saying we're going to end up with around 12 inches. Joy of joys, we've got another storm coming Saturday with somewhere around 5-6 more inches. That should put us even with or ahead of last year at this time, when we had over 100+ inches for the season.
Well, if you're in the path of this storm GOOD LUCK. Take it easy on the shoveling and have a good weekend.
