Hmmmm… Yucky, but not quite dire yet.
There’s more on the way.
The forecast now says 5 to 8 inches of snow expected today and 1 to 3 tonight. That’s a downgrade from last night. I went to bed with thoughts of 12 to 20.
While I dislike the term “hardcore” to describe bicyclists who ride in bad weather (I reject the idea that car drivers are having a higher quality experience), anyone on a bicycle today would earn the h-word. Ain’t gonna be me
UPDATE: 9:52 a.m.
UPDATE: 1:30 p.m.
Hmmmm… how does one measure snowfall? Looks like 10 inches to me in the packed areas. I shoveled 6 inches off my driveway — twice! So, do you count fluffy new inches or compacted inches? — And, yes, I had to think carefully not to create any unintended innuendo there
UPDATE: 4:15 p.m.
UPDATE: File this under “Sucks a lot.”
Some miserable bastard stole my two snow shovels. Seriously.
I was sitting here working on the interwebs when I heard a clatter that sounded like the mailman. I didn’t think anything of it, but I did peek out the window by my desk. I saw a small blue van pulled across my driveway. I didn’t think anything of that, either.
A few minutes later I peeked out and saw footprints on my driveway.
And a bit later still I went out to shovel the driveway a third time and discovered my shovels had been stolen. My neighbor saw the same blue van and told me a boy from the van had knocked on his door but left before he answered.
