Snow, snow and then some snow.
We got hit by the snowstorm already this early morning or perhaps I should write this late night. I had over 5 cm (around two inches) already when I went away to work at 5:50 am. I drove earlier than normal because I thought it was better to drive slow and reach work than to hurry and not get there at all 🙂
Unfortunately not everyone thought the same so I could here on the county radio that lots of cars had slide of the road, but no bigger accidents happened around here anyway. The worst was the wind so even if there wasn´t that much snow on the ground the wind placed it on the road instead. They hadn´t even been to the first part of my way to work to get rid of the snow, so we were two cars that very slowly drove down to the highway.
Even if they had done their best to get rid of the snow on the highway it still was a mess due to the wind. But I have to say that I was alone to drive in my direction and I met only two other cars on the whole way 🙂 It took me twice the time to get to work than it normally does, but I got there anyway 🙂
So when I realized that I could go home earlier today I did. The wind was so strong that my bosses barn got damaged by it and I couldn´t stop thinking about that old crabapple tree beside the dog yard. Last time we had a storm here a big branch fell down into it and I don´t think it will last another big storm. So I drove home one hour earlier, I thought that it was better to get stuck in the snow when there is daylight than get stuck if it´s dark 🙂
It seems (as usual) I worried about that old tree unnecessary, the wind wasn´t that strong here at home at all. The forest took most of it and I and the tree lives a bit lower than the surroundings so the snow fall was quite gentle here. But I think we already have gotten 15 cm (6 inches) and more is on the way. Now I´ll enjoy the evening with a fire in the stove and a hot pot of tea by my side, but tomorrow morning I´ll have to dig out my car from the snow and I hate that 🙂 🙂 Have a great day now!
