Snow, Beautiful Snow

January 10th, 2016 at 03:30 am

Yesterday while F was in Geography Club it started to snow, really snow, hard! It usually takes us 17 minutes to get home, but it took 45. Cars were pulled over on the side of the road, everyone was going about 5 mph. Some cars couldn't make it up small hills. I picked a route home that was relatively flat but it was downhill because we live downhill from school. I was supposed to pick up D from work on the way home, but I had F call him and he started walking toward us and ended up just jumping in the car so that we didn't have to go out of our way.

Anyway, thanks to our snow tires and everyone being very good about leaving room for other cars and not tailgating and going slowly, we made it home last night safely. I may have mentioned that we have an extra set of rims, so D just puts the tires on himself in November, and that saves us a lot of money! We only put them on his car, and we share that car when snow is forecast.

It snowed overnight, too, and we woke up to a beautiful snowy morning! So, we decided to go cross country skiing and sledding. The roads still weren't plowed most streets but they were packed and not icy, and the snow tires were perfect.

It was a really wonderful day, and we had roasted veggies and rice for dinner.

If it's snowy where you are, be safe and have fun!

    Fresh snow looks gorgeous but oh so treacherous on hilly terrain here. 281 police calls for fender benders yesterday. We get mid day thaw followed by overnight freeze causing all those light weight truck beds to react as out-of-control whips. Hope you had a fun time XC skiing.
