Snowpocalypse Now

Friday, December 19th, 2008 | General

Awake many hours earlier than I should be (7am is too early for me to wake up even on work days, much less on days off), but my neighbor’s spinning tires woke me up, so I figured I’d get up to see how bad SNOWPOCALYPSE ‘08 is, and I’ve been sucked in by watching the news reports.

We’re at 9″ already and it’s still coming down pretty good. Rumor has it the snow will stop in the next 3-4 hours, though. At the moment, though, it looks like we’re in a snowglobe that’s just gotten a good shaking by someone with anger issues.

I looked out the window a few minutes ago. Car’s buried up to its bumper, thanks to drifting in the parking lot. So that’ll be fun for later. But for now, I’m crawling back under the covers with the cat to wait it all out and rest up for some snowshoeing later. (Yay!)

I had to snowshoe just to get to the barn. I think I am going to put my snow on ebay. There is just way more here than I need and someone else might want to do some snowshoeing too.


Just into digging out, the drive belt on the snowblower decided to break. Since our street had not yet been plowed and I couldn’t get out, I had to do the rest by shoveling. You know how people always say that such things put one in mind of simpler times?

No they don’t…

Yeah. The people who say that don’t live in cold climates.

And little did I know when I posted this entry that the snowshoeing I’d be doing would only serve to keep me from sinking knee-deep in the snow while I shoveled. By the time that was all done, I was too tired to do any snowshoeing recreationally.
