Default Snowed in today

Got a snowfall yesterday afternoon and overnight. Less than 2 inches accumulation. But it's an icy snow. Very slick. And our secondary roads weren't brined or plowed. So I'm taking today off. Don't want to risk wrecking the work truck. Not going above freezing either so no much melting to happen.

Always good to take a snow day.....

Even though it's called North Carolina, It's still considered the South. Suppose to be bitterly cold this week (for us) and hopefully it will be over.

But yeah, I agree, the NE has really taken it on the chin this year.

It has been pretty mild for us this year. Lots of lows below freezing but only overnight and only in the 20's. Last year it dropped to single digits and stayed below freezing for days at a time.

Looks like the inside of the freezer we have in the garage. I need to defrost that thing.

This is the road that runs in front of the house. Wasn't even touched today.



Update: They came through and plowed. Yay.
