They began closing everything down around noon, before even one flake fell. But by 4ish it was coming down densely and it just piled up beautifully. It's great not to have to drive in this stuff. This amount of snowfall is quite unusual for this far south, and so we celebrate it while it lasts. The weather report says it will warm up by Sunday and this should all disappear. In the meantime the dogs are befuddled and wimpy, not venturing out of the shoveled driveway. It's like a fenced in front yard!
Dave got out around midnight, since he doesn't sleep much, and shoveled the drive. I am supposed to get our car's emission checks today. As if! So he wanted me to be able to get out onto the road. It ain't gonna happen.
