A week ago a drove through a sunny and dry Utah (hear that, Cololi? ) into a wintery and snow-logged Colorado
In fact, I made it over Vail Pass on Interstate 70 before it closed.
But if any Texans read this, all the snow went to Utah. Please take your winter ski vacation there.
And Texans don't come to Utah, we don't have real beer.
The forecast for later in the week? Highs in the low 30F range with snow. This place will soon feel like Orlando.
What drive to work?
We ended up with 1/2 inch of freezing rain and sleet last night and have 11 inches on the ground as I type. I can't see the houses across the street and we're expecting upto an additional 6 inches.
Therefore, work and my meeting have been cacelled.
I just got a call from my dad, and my sister and mom are planning on driving down from the UP to for dress shopping with the Fiancée tomorrow. So, anyone along 131 to the bridge, please pipe in often with updates on road conditions.
Sent home from work? Too much snow and ice?
Work Canceled? What the...
Our city offices have not closed in almost 30 years!
Society has gotten soft when it comes to Ice and Snow. Maister and I were talking about how silly it is that every school in the area is closed because of this storm. When I was a kid, growing up in one of the snowiest parts of the country, we would close school if we had several feet of snow during lunch. Beyond that, we had to walk in blizzard like conditions, up hill both ways, with packs of wolves chasing us.
