More of the Same

Did you hear? It's snowing.


With more expected tomorrow.

And again on Saturday.

And probably again next Tuesday, as well.

With all the snow we've been having, I was feeling a bit unfazed by the idea of heading out in it to do some errands today. So, I bundled up, grabbed my keys, and headed to the end of the driveway, where the car had been stationed in the "launch" position.

Well. What I saw there, on our street -- Main Street, in fact -- convinced me to stay home. Rutted, snowy tracks covered the road, cars were crawling past, and slipping noticeably at the corner. Whatever I thought I had to do didn't seem so pressing anymore.

We're all bracing for the second part of this "1, 2 punch", set to arrive tomorrow, with an icy mix of snow, sleet & rain.

Was hoping to visit your area soon, but the snow never melts, and I have no boots. Could you improve conditions?
