I'm taking a snow day. It's snowing about an inch an hour right now, that is serious snowing! Being a veteran of past storms I've opted to avoid the 3/4 mile walk to the bus stop with snow blinding me and half smothering me all the while. It would be downright dangerous coming home later today, because sidewalks will not have been cleared yet - that means walking in the roads in conditions where drivers might not actually see me until it was too late. No thanks!
Happily I did stop at the Pick 'n Save last night and was surprised that it was not busy at all! I thought it would be another mob scene like it was Sunday afternoon, a couple of hours before Superbowl started. Geez! I have supplies laid in so I'm hunkering down - ahhhh, I feel a nap in my near future... And I have a new book to crack open -
10:05 a.m. Update:
I shoveled a pathway from the from door to the road in three separate shifts between 8:45 and 9:30. The plow was working on the road in front of my house as I was out working. For the time being, at least, I have a clear path about 3 feet wide down to the road - until the plow comes through again and the drifts fill it up. Already they are forming...
