Snowed In


A post with no time for talking. I do have a few photos of the blizzard we've had for the last two days. It snowed yesterday but not today but the wind was 60 - 80 km. per hour both days and the drifting was severe. My driveway was plowed out twice since this since this morning and sis in law had a terrible time leaving here after that. My son can drive through anything and will get down, then plowed out again before he gets up in the morning.



The above show approximately the same spot in around twenty six hours. It is still blowing like crazy as I write this thirty hours later.

Most of the ground was bare before this 'spring snowstorm'. Poor man's fertilizer, I explained in 2007. Ha, I found out I talked about it in 2006 as well. Anyway, we really got walloped this year, I think.





The music tonight will come from the past. Nothing new.

What a switch, we had maybe 1cm and high winds the night before last. Windy yesterday but no snow. Today it is melting. Rickey just came home for the night, they lost power where he is staying. He said that they got a lot of snow and high winds also.

It's been wicked! I don't mind. I'm ov vacation and got my income tax done, moved some furniture.

Spectacular photos- I can just feel that wind! We have had nor'easters like that at the end of March here in Central NY in past years -- but this year all we have is the cold and the brown, weathered grass that has emerged from the melt. Thinking of you! Stay warm.

Oh, Nan, this is depressing. This morning on the way to work, my son's truck went over the side of my steep driveway - backwards. A tree stopped him from rolling. He's fine. Just left it there and called someone to pick him up for work.

Oh no! Glad your son's OK. We're getting the same weather system, I think, only it's rain. Lots of it. And I have to drive in it. Don't like!

A tractor is coming to pull out the son's truck but he can't make it home. I have to drive it. Yikes!

Nan said...

Oh that is awful. I am a bit late in responding . . . hope you were able to get the truck out of there. Be safe!

Cuidado said...

Yes, I got it out, Nan. You probably know that by now.
