First Major Snow Fall

Treacherous travel. . . Snowfall 2-3 inches an hour. . . Don't go out if you don't have to. . .

Those are the headlines that sent thousands of people home from school and work early today. We closed at noon and were actually able to lock up by 1 p.m. But by then, it was already crazy out there. I cleared off my car on one side, went around and did the other, and then went back to get in the car. Got back to the driver's side and it was already covered again! What is normally a 7-11 minute commute (depending on the lights) turned into an hour crawl.

We're looking at a foot or so, perhaps, with snow continuing until at least 2 a.m. And more coming Saturday evening. Of course kids are hoping for a day off tomorrow, but I am not optimistic about that. Not yet at least. Meanwhile, though, I'm enjoying the view from my living room =)

LOL, if we don't go out after such a snowfall here in Norway we would be stuck indoors all winter :-)

True enough! We did not have school canceled, but we did get a 2 hour delay. On a Friday, that's more bother than it's worth, but it's what we'll have to deal with today. Ah well...

I've been hearing about the storm on the news and wondering how you folks were faring out there.

You must have gotten the snow version of our rain!
