We've gotten about 12 inches of snow in the last 24 hours. That was added on to the 8 inches of snow that we had laying on the ground since Saturday. It shows no sign of letting up. The schools were all closed in our county, but they did not close the college. I weighed the situation carefully, and decided that since my road was plowed, I would make the trip. It got worse as I went, and by the time that I got to the town where the college is, the roads were truly awful. Worst of all? The college parking lot needed to be plowed so badly that people were getting stuck. They should have closed the campus. After class, I drove back home, in white out conditions for probably half the trip. By the time I hit my neck of the woods, it was about an hour before I was supposed to go to work, so I did not bother to even go home. I got a hair cut, and I went to work. It's still snowing. By the time that I came out of work, I had another six inches of snow to brush off my car. I drove up our hill with my heart in my throat. It was snowing like crazy, and visibility was virtually nil, but you didn't dare stop lest you never get started again.
They are calling for another 4-10 inches in the next 24 hours. Watching it come down, I'd have to say that's a conservative estimate.
They closed the campus tonight. If it doesn't stop, I can't imagine that they'd have school tomorrow.
Yeah. Tomorrow, I'll take pictures.
