OK, I know you are getting sick of snow pictures, but its only fair to share some of the winter pain with all of you, if even vicariously.
The storm was much less than advertised. The forecasters predicted 1/3 to a 1/2 inch of ice, followed by 8 inches of snow, topped off with 50 mph winds just for kicks. The warnings included stocking up on batteries and blankets, battery powered radios to cope with the predicted power outages. I’m a bit gunshy after lat year’s ice storm/blizzard sequence, so was relieved when we only got a coating of ice, 4 inches of snow and 40 mph winds. Nonetheless everything is shut down until the snow plows come.
