It is late Monday afternoon, and I haven’t left the house since Friday night, when Mother Nature once again went off her meds. It stormed all Friday night and all day Saturday, bad enough that every road around us was closed. On Sunday, the snow stopped, but we took the advice of the police and stayed off the roads so they could continue the cleanup. You see, some people just think they are invincible and don’t pay attention to road closures. They have 4 wheel drive vehicles, so they will be fine!! However, that doesn’t help in whiteout conditions when you can’t see the car in front of you. As a result, there were many accidents and hundreds of cars abandoned on the roadways. When the plows began the cleanup, it was hard for them to tell what was just a snowdrift and what was a buried car.
Last night we heard another storm was coming, but my son, Daniel, didn’t think he would be lucky enough to have the buses cancelled again since he had two exams to write. When the alarm went off this morning, I got up and looked out our front window and was pretty sure none of us were going anywhere. Once again, the buses were cancelled and the highways closed. Boy was it cold too!! Let me tell you, people around here are getting sick of winter pretty quick! I went out to grab some photos first thing before Mike blew the driveway, but I didn’t last long because my hands were starting to hurt from the cold, and it’s really hard to use a camera with heavy gloves on. Here is our winter wonderland once again:
