Snow enough for ya?

I think somewhere in Blogging 101, there’s something about how you should never blog about the weather, because, really weather is elevator conversation and otherwise boring. 

Except if you live in the Northeast this winter. And, by Northeast, I mean PA/NJ/DE/MD/DC. Which is really Mid-Atlantic. Which normally doesn’t see snow in the amounts we’ve witnessed lately.  I think the total thus far, in my area (Philly) is 60″ so far, and we aren’t even halfway though winter.

First it was Snowpocalypse the week of Christmas, and this past weekend, Snowmageddon. We got 2 feet of snow. 


It was impossible to measure since the winds drifted the snow everywhere, but that’s what the weather people agreed on.  And tomorrow night into Wednesday, guess how much snow is coming?

Uh huh.

So what does one do with 4 feet of snow on the ground? I guess I’ll find out soon enough.

Ironically, David has school today. Which is laughable, because the streets are a mess. When I met the bus driver this morning, she had the look of dread on her face.  As she pulled away, the bus bounced up and down as she navigated the giant boulders of snow in the road.

You see, my school district has ALREADY used up all the planned snow days, and has started having the kids come in on holidays to make up for lost time. Today would have been a snow day any other winter. But the school administrators and school bus operators are having heart palpitations about another 1-2 feet on the way (during the week, NOT on a weekend like the one this past Saturday) so they are obviously throwing their hands in the air and praying for a miracle.

In the meantime, I should tell you how FUN it is to drive to a bus stop and have NO PLACE to park, and break our necks trying to get to the bus while dodging impatient neighborhood drivers.

So much fun.

At this rate, I might as well just live in Syracuse, NY… the snowiest city in the U.S.

I’m betting we might just be beating them this year.

  1. We only got like 1/2 an inch here near VA Beach. The other weekend we got 6-8 inches and I have to say, I kind of miss the snow :o(. I had it most of my life and while it can be a real pain in the you know what, it IS nice to look at.. and if it's freezing, I'd rather it just snow. Plus it puts me in the mood to cook and bake things and then eat too much…. and hibernate on the couch in baggy pajama pants.
