I wish we got that where I'm at in SnoCo, some rain but not nearly enough to clear away the crud. Had to borrow a neighbor's shovel to get my car out it was so high, that's a first for me living in this area! Managed to get out and was surprised how much stuff was still closed. Local McDs was only open for drive thru and the mall was shut down entirely save for Sears. I don't know what's keeping that location alive there's never anyone in it lol.
This is so crap. The southend will have two days+ with no snow by tomorrow. And it's not even a delay, full closure. I've shoveled my walk, I did my part. At least the Y was open today for some normalcy/break.
When I was a kid I would have been ecstatic for a break this long, but this just seems so uncalled for. My break has been extra because the school can cancel PreK apart from the rest of school, and they have, oh yes they have.
My daughter wants to go back to school and see her friends. Her birthday was yesterday so she also wants to hand out treats. I really hope they’re open Thursday.
It’s easy for all of us to criticize school closures, but I knew the transportation director at the district I worked in and they have a lot of factors to consider when making the call. Sure I can get my kid to school but the district isn’t all flat like my neighborhood is. It’s not as simple as we think it is.
Some snow from some clothing (might've been mine, might've been my passenger's) got into my car today and got my car's USB port wet. Now it doesn't recognize when there's a USB stick in it. Took the stick out so they could both dry. I really hope that's all it takes to fix the situation. I'd hate to have to actually listen to the radio.
Yeah, we got about a foot, and never lost power. Some downed branches we'll have to clean up at some point, but didn't lose power, and it's rapidly melting. So, all in all, kind of a weak snowpocalypse for me, tho I feel sorry for people who lost power. (I lost power for 5 days in 1996, and that was my worst fear for this snow storm)
We got more snow than I can recall us ever getting before. I've cleared enough of the driveway that I can get out, but there are still more cars that need a path.
We were extremely fortunate and didn't lose power (at least not for more than a minute - we woke to blinking clocks one morning but the time they had was correct).
Then again, my mother owns a second property that's a bit off the beaten path and is currently unoccupied. It's surrounded by trees. There's no chance that I'll be able to check on it before the snow melts. I did what I could to protect it before the storm hit, but it's not like there was anything I could do to stop trees from falling on it. It will be interesting to see how it fared.
Bellingham snowed over a couple times. It was always relatively minor, up until the last few days. I haven't had class in a week thanks to the absurd amount of snowfall. We were supposed to have a late start today, but nope, not even.
I'm amazed WWU is open tomorrow, considering my entire porch and driveway just froze over with ice. All the snow that was melting today? An honorary glossy deathtrap.
I'm just so tired of being afraid of not being able to get to my home, having to depend on others, on snow melting and turning to ice or rain that freezes into ice. I'm tired of trees knocking out the power (four separate times).
I never want to see a series of storms like this again and I hope the worst is over.
I now fully expect a frost giant from Norse mythology to summon in my driveway and just cover everything for daring to say that.
