Snow and More Snow
February 2, 2011
We heard warnings of an impending snowstorm to hit our area almost a week before it hit. Monday evening the local cancellations started being announced with more Tuesday morning since the storm was to hit Tuesday evening. Grocery stores were a bit busier than usual but that's the norm anytime a snowstorm is announced. The snow started about dinner time Tuesday night. My husband had put a sign that the office would be closed on Wednesday due to the weather so this morning was a little disappointed to see asphalt in the driveway. Then he realized our driveway had been plowed out. Throughout the night we had about 30 cm of fresh snow accumulation with another 10 cm predicted during the day. Once the winds died down visibility improved and drifting lessened so he headed into the office for half the day. It continued to snow thoughout the day by evening it was clear. And here I was worried about what the lack of snowfall would mean for the upcoming growing season.
