    Winter Storms ~ 2010

    Post  Mickey on Wed Feb 10, 2010 7:38 am

    I certainly hope this is going to be the last winter storm of 2010. I am SICK OF SNOW!!!

    I think I'm going to be stuck at home today. The neighbor came down and plowed out the driveway already, but our road hasn't been plowed yet so I doubt if I'll make it to work. Maybe I'll just stay home and make cookies today instead of taking a chance of getting stuck somewhere.

    Ugh, just checked the weather report, here we go again!!
    Sunday night thru Monday night a winter storm will impact the area. Possible excess of 6" of snow or freezing rain with less accumulations. May want to keep an eye on this one me thinks.

    So we're supposed to get hit with the first MAJOR snow storm of the year. I hope they're wrong, as usual. I am SO ready for spring!

    I could not find a parking space at the Northland Ray's...looked inside and it was full, no carts, long lines....LOL....so I went across the lot to Dollar general and picked up a few things..
    OMG the white death is coming....these people act like it never snows or ices in OHIO....sheesh
    I am not a fan of snow and ice , just brought another bag of salt into the utility room and have the snow shovel ready to go....since I get to shovel this year, hubby is forbidden to with his heart problem...

    I'm laughing with you. LOL! We went to Wal-Mart in Ottawa tonight, just to do some regular shopping, and there wasn't a freakin' gallon of milk, carton of eggs or a loaf of bread to be had. The girl at the deli told us that some lady came in and bought 4 pounds of ham because she's terrified the power will go out and they won't have anything to eat. OMG people, it's just a little freaking snow! Well, maybe some ice along with it, but it isn't like we haven't seen snow before!

    With the wind blowing like it is right now I've already got a drift in the middle of my driveway. My little Escort may not make it out in the morning so I'll have to take grunt's truck. And life goes on, even if we do get some snow and ice. LMFAO! Laughing

    I stayed home from work yesterday, the drifts blocked me in, I never would have made it out of the driveway. Grunt went out with the snowblower and cleared it, but within a couple of hours you couldn't tell, anyway. It isn't looking good today, but I'm going to try to get out of the garage. My daughter says I'm not going to make it, but we'll see. This weather just sucks. Mad

    Okay, I'm stuck at home again. I got ready for work, got in the car and backed out of the garage, only to get stuck as soon as I sunk in the ice-crusted snow drift. It took me a good 5 minutes rocking the car back and forth just to get back in the garage. My daughter was standing in the kitchen laughing at me saying, "I told you that you weren't going anywhere." She was right. Maybe I'll just make some chocolate chip cookies. Smile

    We invested in a new snow blower this past fall. It didn't work very well on the ice-crusted snow. The daughter and I had to break up the ice with ice scrapers and then grunt used the snow blower over it. Not only did I get stuck this morning, but he got his truck stuck, too. The daughter and I ended up pushing to get him unstuck. We were out there for hours today. I'm getting ready to hit the shower, watch American Idol and then hit the bed. I've been home from work for 2 days in a row now, I can honestly say I'm ready to go back to work tomorrow.

    Puxatawny Phil (no, I don't know how to spell it) didn't see his shadow today, so hopefully only 6 more weeks of winter. I can't wait until it's finally over!

    Stuck home again today - dang! The daughter tried going to work this morning @ 5:20 and she got stuck in the street as soon as she pulled out of the driveway. Drifts are horrible. I really hate to waste my vacation time on snow days. Crying or Very sad

    This is one of the very few things I don't like about living out in the country. The plows won't get down our street until sometime this afternoon at the earliest.
