Normal 30 minute drive took an hour and a half.  Not too bad.  A couple of observations:

- The governor should have kicked the tractor trailers off of the roads hours before she did.  Every problem I had involved one.

- This kind of weather is no time to be riding your God damned bicycle down THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD while I try to keep forward momentum and not slide into you, the oncoming traffic, or off the shoulder.  Moron.

- You should be allowed to stop the car and shoot people who plow their driveways out into the road, and then continue on your way.  Idiots.

- Shoving your brother/friend into the path of the oncoming car who is barely making it up the hill while you're frolicking in the middle of the street in the dark, in the blinding snow,  wearing dark, non-reflective clothing is just... just... words are failing me here.  Or at least I won't post the ones that are coming to mind.

- The downside of living in a town with less than 8,000 people means that no matter how well-intentioned public works is - you're still going to have to slog through multiple inches of snow on the road.

But I'm home.  Bob is home.  He's currently trying to get the snow blower to start, given that when I got home we had 8-10 inches on the ground.  The chicken is baking, and the woodstove is hot.  If I didn't have to go to work tomorrow, it would be perfect.

Whew...yeah you guys seem to be getting a lot of snow. Moko_Moko (other LJ friend) lives in Boston & she says they are making snow angels in the street 'cause it is DEAD there...nothing's getting in or out of the city.

We got like, 6 inches & then it stopped. That's the most snow we've had so far this winter...it's been mild. BUT! A huge storm is forcast for Saturday night here...somewhere between one & two feet by Monday morning. Everyone's talking like it's a sure thing, so I guess we'll see.

I've seen the pictures & I have to say, your house looks like an awfully cozy place to be snowed in. :-) I think I'd love that.

We topped out at ten to eleven inches. It's absolutely gorgeous. The driveway is a complete mess, but we got the cars off the street and that's the important thing. As long as I don't cause problems for the plows, everything else can be worked out.

The prediction for the weekend storm is being dialed back down here. We've now got a forecast for a "wintery mix," and it's been pushed back to Saturday evening/Sunday. I actually wouldn't mind more straight snow - I hate the ice.

Our house is just about the *perfect* place to be snowed in. Get the woodstove going for heat, put a fire in the fireplace for "cozy" and settle in to watch the snow in the trees. We got so lucky with this house.

The drive in this morning was a piece of cake. All is well.
