February 10, 2008 – “Passable Roads”

This is one of those days where there is a huge diference between living in town and out in the country.  The roads in town are just fine and our road is, shall we say “passable” thanks to neighbors with equipment and not the county plows.

We left home early in the morning and came home after dark and found the drifts were higher than the car and the width of the road was a few inches wider than the width of a car.

Again, we’re happy to be home as it is still bitterly cold, but the wind has stopped - but 4-5 more inches are forecast for tomorrow.  This snow is exceptionally dense – shoveling it is more like digging dirt than shoveling snow.  I don’t know if it was the result of the snow being blown for miles and loosing the flakey edges or if the cold makes it pack together tighter.  Whatever the cause, the car drives over the smaller drifts instead of sinking through.
