February 1st, 2011


We got a couple of inches of snow overnight. Many of the neighbors cleared their driveways. I didn't bother, believing that resistance is futile, although I did take the shovel and clear a one-shovel-wide path to my newspaper and the mailbox -- with dead ends each time I turned to push the cleared snow to the edge of the driveway.

I went out for lunch and to grab the last couple of grocery items that we'd missed yesterday. By the time I got back at 2:30 PM, it was coming down pretty good. By now, you can't tell that I did anything to the driveway.

Tomorrow is going to be interesting.


Eight new inches on the ground as of 9 PM. Thirty-plus MPH winds with 60 MPH plus gusts. Lightning and thunder. The snow is flying in a circle around the cul-de-sac, which made life interesting for the city snowplow that was trying to clear it earlier.

We'll see how things look by morning.
