Default January was too calm...

so to make up for it, that bitch Mother Nature is making up for it at the end of February.

Light rain and ice tomorrow to make the drive into work interesting, and then 6 to 10 inches of snow Thursday.

As I'm working carryouts both days, I will be responsible for salting and shoveling the sidewalks, and possibly shoveling out the emergency exits Friday after the plows do their thing and build a waist-high wall of snow in front of said emergency exits.

Yaaay. Not.

*sends Irv Sacramento's weather* and a for the way the plows make more work for you. I hate that about them.

I hear you, Irv! As always!

January was just bitterly cold. I mean, so cold if you grabbed a doorknob from outside, you'd tear skin right off of your hand and it'd bleed.

We didn't even get a foot of snow in January.

But then there was some light snow in early February......followed by a few days of glorious upper 30s and even 40s and almost 50 degree days.....the roads and sidewalks all melted and then the water evaporated and I bought some nice heels and only got to wear them ONCE.....

Because....

It got bitterly cold again for a few days, then back to normal or just slightly below...then last Tuesday night we got dumped on with about 4 inches of snow, and then another 2 or 3 more Friday night....

Tomorrow looks pretty mild, but Thursday they are predicting 1-4 inches...they said they may add more if the system goes further north.

STOP. FUCKING. SNOWING. ENOUGH! December's record breaking totals was enough for the entire winter!

If this is like last year and there's still over a foot of snow on the ground in April, I will invent the biggest hair dryer in the world and will melt it all myself. When the economy gets better and this city gets out of its budget cut loving, I say they make heated sidewalks and roads. And then fix the fucking potholes permanently....don't just fill them in once every week after a snowstorm.

*bump*

We've now been upped to 4-8 inches for tomorrow. I'm going to keep in tune with the news and see if there's any chance the storm will weaken or head south....or worst-case but most likely scenario...get stronger and up it more to 8-10 inches. UGH!

Now I gotta wake up extra early to get my grocery shopping and errands done before it starts. It's going to be that super wet, sloppy, heavy snow. That stuff is back breaking to clean off your car and shovel. Great. Once I get home tomorrow, I'll be snowed in all damn day and night. I'm just going to hope and pray they plow and clear up the roads by Friday because I have to go back home and do laundry 15 miles away...

This is going to be great. The past few days it's been in the 30s and 40s. At night, all the puddles freeze. No doubt about it, tomorrow, once it's back to the 20s and staying there, all that snow will cover the ice and it'll be even more dangerous with sneaky willy nilly ice......

Then more snow Saturday....MAKE. IT. STOP!

Blas and Irv--where in Wisconsin are you located? I live in West Bend, which is about 35 miles northwest of Milwaukee. We're only supposed to get 1-2 inches.

I'll just say I live about an hour and a half from Minneapolis....

Becks, we got raised to 6-10 inches. Most schools around here are letting out between noon and 2, despite the fact that supposedly it's not going to start until about 3 or 4 this afternoon. I'm not sure if they will cancel school or not tomorrow, but I still have to wander to do my laundry.

I managed to get all my errands done, and now all I have left once it starts snowing is to go out every few hours and shovel around my car so that I can get it out tomorrow. If I let all the snow fall and don't do that, my car will be buried and stuck. It can get stuck in 4 inches of unplowed snow.
