PostSubject: Blizzard conditions!   Wed Feb 06, 2008 1:45 pm

The snowstorm outdoors is so bad that you can't even see the next road! The sustained wind is at 20 mph, with gusts up to 45mph. For only the second time in 14 years, our Wednesday evening church service is cancelled. We *never* cancel! We've had about 8 inches of snow in the past five hours, and the storm is supposed to last til about 10:00 tonight. It sure is pretty out!! But I'm going to hate having to get out in it. I need to leave for work soon. :unsure:

Ah well. I need some excitement. grinsmiley

LOL - You would think that I should envy that, wouldn't you? But to be honest, I'm THRILLED about the snow! Last year, we only got a little bit, and I missed it so much! So this year, I'm enjoying every single inch that falls!! happy1 :snowman:

Savannah,
Drive safely and when you get home tonight, you can "hunker down." Let us know that you arrived to work safe and sound.

Oh my goodness, Savannah! I can relate!! Rob, how are you doing up there??? We have the worst roads right now that I've driven on in at least 3 years. We had ice underneath already, and we're expected to get between 10 and 12 inches here. last I heard. I'm not really all that prepared to be snowed in...I should have gone grocery shopping last night! :unsure: I hear it's even worse going toward Detroit. Pam, how's the weather in your neck of the woods? My sister came home from Ann Arbor today (on business) and she said it's just ALL ice there! So I guess I'm lucky where I live!

My hubby is driving home from Grand Rapids right now....I told him to pull off if it gets too bad. I'm kind of a nervous wreck right now, cooking dinner and sitting here trying to 'keep busy'! LOL! I wish he would have just stayed put over there, but he said the roads were fine on that end. He'll be surprised as he gets farther east!! :sad5:

Thanks everyone! I ended up coming home a little early. Things were getting worse, and the roads are just awful. Visibility was being measured in yards. If a car didn't have their lights on - you couldn't see it until you were almost on top of it! A semi truck was having trouble stopping at a red light, and I thought we were going to meet under rather unpleasant circumstances......but he was able to stop just in time. I'm so glad to be home. And I am SO staying here. grinsmiley I think we have about 14" out there, but it's hard to tell with the drifting and blowing. I've shovelled three times today, and my Dad has shovelled twice, and it doesn't look like we've touched it. A good old fashioned blizzard!

Amy, I'll be praying for your husband's safety on the roads. At least everyone seems to be driving sensibly. I don't think anyone was going over 25 mph!

Okay.........here's a picture I took a few hours ago - and the snow's been pounding us since then.......so there's more yet. But it gives a little idea of how it looks. That's one of the children's yard toys, with snow piling up on it. LOL!

Amy, we have lots of snow on the ground, but we haven't gotten much from this storm at all. A couple inches the night before last, and maybe an inch or so last night. Otherwise all is quiet.

You stay safe, too!

Attach a snow blower to the front of your car. Impress your friends.

Better yet Savannah, buy yourself a Chevy 4X4 with 20" lifts, a 454 motor and Mudeater tires. Man, you'll be cool. All the chicks will want to be you. The guys too.

:Hahaha: Thank you, Lily. I'm hoping that the roads will be cleared before I have to leave tomorrow. The Road Commission called off the plows at 11:00, and they're giving it up til morning. They can't keep up. Most of our roads are closed, or impassible. So I'm glad to be home! That's for sure!
