We got about 9” of snow and normally I would think that is a lot, but nothing really compares to the 33” of last winter. Luckily, I got home just before the snowstorm started at 3 p.m. Some of my colleagues were not as lucky. We had something I Had never heard of before yesterday: Thunder Snow! It’s when it is Thundering (and Lighting) while it’s snowing. During Thunder Snow you can have snow fall at 1-2” an hour (that’s a lot).
So the Thunder Snow happened during Rush Hour and it was a mess. Apparently people were abandoning cars on the major roadways so then the snowplows could not get through and do their job. It was a mess. My boss lives 5 miles from the office. It took her over 5 hours to get home. It was fascinating watching Twitter and everyone commenting on their commutes.
I hunkered down and made some Chili and enjoyed the snowfall. But the very best part of the snow fall is my new House. By the time I woke up this morning my parking lot had already been plowed and the roads in my neighborhood had been treated. This is amazing! I can’t believe I spent 10 year in a house where we had to hire our own snowplow off Craigslist or wait days until our street got treated for the most minor snow fall. I can actually get places after a snow!
Pictures Coming Soon…
