  • It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas - who else is getting snowed on.

    We're getting our first real snowfall of the season here in Centralia. The snow is starting to slack, naturally AFTER I walk through it, but we got a good powdering. Not enough to make a snowman but enough to look pretty.

    We did get enough snow to make a snowman last year. We got hit by a blizzard and it took me a day to shovel/plow/blast my way to the street. Good thing I bought groceries, that one shut the town down for about three days.

    Later on we'll perspire as we dream by the fire.

    People were cutting their LAWNS here last december

    But they won't be doing it this year.

    Now the only question is can it last till the 25th.

        Got snowed on yesterday here in Fredericksburg. All .004 inches of it (OK, it was a little more but not much) melted off this morning.

            Got snow here in the Twin Cities. Enough to make me use the snowblower twice and shovel again this evening.

            My normally 30-minute drive home took about an hour and a half day before yesterday. And it was a bad idea to stop for coffee before I got started:

            1. I made a last-minute decision to go to the coffee shop, so I changed lanes a little too abruptly and spun 90 degrees. Luckily no other cars were close enough to make it really dangerous; but it was embarrassing.

            2. My bladder was full before I got halfway home. I considered making a pit stop at another coffee shop, but at that point I figured I could hold out and maybe the traffic would ease up. No such luck. And by the time my urgency was reaching its peak, I was on a stretch of road I couldn't even pull over on, for fear of getting stuck in a snowdrift. Just before my bladder burst, I made it to a gas station. But as I got out of the car, I realized I couldn't risk the restroom being occupied or locked. So, since it was dark, I scampered through the snow, over the railroad tracks, and into a convenient clump of trees.

            Too much information, huh?

                We've had a week or more of temperatures remaining below freezing, plus a couple of inches of snow.

                  I don't think Pat has been in the army

                  Any real soldier would have just let it out where ever, and if any little old ladies were near, they'd get a smile too

                  "through the snow, over the railroad tracks, and into a convenient clump of trees."

                  Nah, out the drivers side, and on the ground right there would be fine.

                      7 inches today and still snowing. I hate snow, but this is where my job is.

                        I don't think the sun has shined here in a week. We got snow, then we got sleet, now they say more ice is on the way.

                        When it rains, it pours, or the winter equivalent.

                        Oh, and a public service advisory, don't shovel your sidewalks if you don't salt them! Too many people out here shovel off the top layer of snow and leave the ice underneath. Al least if you don't shovel the top layer the powder provides grit and traction, even when it freezes. But that smooth bottom layer is a fall waiting to happen. If you shovel the powder, salt the ice. Otherwise it's safer to not shovel at all.

                          Nah, we're back to just rain again.

                          BTW, for those of you concerned about Global Warming -- the temperature for this weekend's Fredericksburg Reenactment was 2 degrees warmer at 1200 than it was on the same date in 1862, but don't worry, it matched precisely at 1900, according to the US Park Service.

                              Got about 4 inches last Wednesday. It was gone by Saturday at sunset.

                              Mud turned into more mud by rain followed.
