The Hood


The Hood

Um. Yeah. We got DUMPED ON. In the past 24 hours 2 feet of snow accumulated. Apparently this is a record. I had to shovel the driveway 4 times yesterday. I went out every 2-3 hours until the snow stopped and each time I went out there had to be at least an inch of snow. Everything closed down yesterday including the library, where I work. The library is closed today, too. I’m kind of relieved because I would have been in charge today and I was worried that I would be the only staff person there! Many of our staff live below the “South Hill” and getting up the hill in this weather is literally impossible. I feel lucky because I don’t have to drive down any side streets to get around. My driveway is right off of a major road that is usually one of the first streets to get plowed in this weather. I just wanted to be sure I could get out of my driveway so that’s why I kept up with the shoveling yesterday.

Here is a picture of my street. I was standing right in front of my house when I took this. You can view some more shots that I took yesterday on Flickr. Check out this one of the planter I forgot to take down this fall!

One thought on “The Hood

  1. It’s almost the same here, but ours seemed to come more slowly. Enough traffic was moving that the snow is a little dirty already. I love it when it’s so crisp and white, and everything is really quiet. But shoveling is no fun! Go take a long hot bath!!
