Not as bad as the East Cost, but still *yuck*





Overnight we got slammed pretty hard from old man winter. I was driving in the beginning of this late yesterday afternoon and saw the aftermath of a very bad accident. Problem is people lose most of their common sense and patience when we get into this weather and on the roads. This is when you have to remember all the defensive driving lessons you were taught, or in short, look out for the other guy.

I got up this morning and saw we got all the snow we were promised. And I got out my shovel with the ergonomic handle, aka, the kinky shovel. I then got to work and yes, I did take breaks.


I did drive into Wooster to get Adam and bring him over for the day. After I got stuck twice, I regretted that move and I will have to get a new tire for the WIXYmobile on Monday.

Now as I put the finishing touches on this post, I am also watching the Budweiser Shootout. This reminds me that spring is just around the corner.





Hopefully we will have Margaret check in, as I have been hearing all day that the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. areas have been hit really hard.

East coast checking in! We made it through, but many roads are still dicy. Was watching a live shot of a local reporter this morning in Baltimore- all of the sudden, he was gone from the shot. He slipped and went right down on his keester! I think he as Ok.

Metro Cincinnati also checking in. 8" of snow at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport 4 miles from my home and pretty near that here. Anywhere from 2 to 9 inches of snow fell between Lexington and Dayton, with more in a few areas north of Interstate 70.

Took me an hour to get home from work on Friday (instead of 20 minutes). This morning was worse, the fog was so thick. Had a dump truck hauling a trailer with farm equipment pull right out in front of me. I believe snow would be the lesser of those two evils.

We just got rain. Looks as if you had quite a bit of digging to do.
