We got another 8-9 inches of snow to top off the 14-15 inches we got last week. Granted, the volume of the existing snow had dropped about half, meaning that this new snow merely put us back where we were last week. And, once again, just like last week's storm, we're going for a record low temperature of -6ºF tomorrow morning. Oh-yea. The old record for annual snowfall was broken by this most recent mess, a record that has stood since 1924. Oh-yea.

We got another 1-3 yesterday but it fell so quickly that the commute was instantly locked down. It took me an hour and a half to travel 23 miles to my home. I've been called a speed demon because of how quickly I made it home.

Now I'm debating whether to drag my carcass back out there. The Interstates are moving but I doubt my ability to reach them.

Pics taken the same day at my workplace and on the drive home. :xwalk:

From left to right, top to bottom:

1. Employee parking lot.

2. Street that I cross to get to the office. Pic taken of car next to snowbanks to show the height of the snow banks.

3. Snow bank at the intersection. Unless you're in a high van or truck, you're driving blind out into traffic. Yay.

4. Customer parking lot attached to the office.

5. The HUGE mountain of snow that the bucket loader moved to the side of the building right up to the side stairs, that'll probably still be melting come next winter.

6. A pic taken of the other side of the stairs for contrast.

7. A pic taken on my drive home from work.

8. Ditto. Yeah.. we're supposed to be able to see going into or out of the lot of that store.

9. Pulling onto my street.

10. Coming up on the snow banks on either side of my driveway. I back out reeeeally slow and hope that no one is coming too fast to stop before they take the back half of my car with them.



Such funs. :shakesnow:

Last night it got down to -12:degrees: F / -24:degrees: C . :doggytremble:

Today's high temperature was about 70 degrees higher than yesterday's low. The melt is on.

Next week, it's supposed to get up into the 40's F. Maybe I'll create my own water park on my property and quit my day job. :waterskii:

It's been in the 60s and close to 70 degrees in the past four days. The snow is almost gone except in the shady places and where there were huge piles of it.

I'm glad the snow has stopped in this area as around here it has a nasty tendency to turn into piss-tinted sleet.
