My scanner finally worked so I thought I’d show you a little of what snow can be around here. The best part of this story is that I was not here. I lived in Cody, Wyoming at the time and, if I recall correctly, it was right around Easter. We had one of those dump-two-feet-of-snow in an afternoon type storms. Mom and Dad were laughing at me for living in Wyoming and the next day – this happened.
It was amusing. Really, really amusing. And while Cody had the streets cleared by morning – this road is not plowed. Granted, it was a March or April snow and probably melted within days. But it was still funny.
Same storm, I think, but a view from the carport up toward the road. You may have to go to the full size photo to be able to see the slope of the drive.
Tomorrow, I’m climbing the stairs with my camera and seeing what the upper drive and road are looking like. This is the 8th day of being iced in. My neighbors, did I say already? Have their cars parked on the upper road and are hiking up there. She tells me that the roads up top, at least on Friday, were still ice covered and the parking lots were solid ice. It never warmed up and the sun didn’t shine so I’m betting the ice is still there. Supposed to snow a little Monday – Tuesday we may get sun but it’ll still be below freezing.
I’m supposed to go to Springfield on Wednesday – when it finally warms up! It’s not looking very good right now and I’m guessing I’ll have to reschedule. We’ll see how things are looking on Tuesday.
This has been a long winter.
