My work is closed too! Yay! -15 tomorrow, wind chills -40. Nobody needs to be outside.

I checked about two hours ago and it was at 14.5" then. The wind is starting to pick up now so it's probably drifting some. I'll check again in the morning.

We already got all our snow / below 0 weather! I missed it because I was in NY and it was like 25 degrees there, so I can't complain. We still have tons of snow though!

I like to dog

I got to try out my snow thrower this morning in my drive and my parents' drive (they're 3 doors down lol). Nifty, but then this afternoon the snow went crazy, and now you can't really tell where I did anything. It's still snowing, but there was a report that the plows out until 5am. So glad I didn't have to work today, and I'm off the next two days. Not only do I not want to drive if I don't have to, but I work on commission, so going to work when no one wants to get their dogs groomed is a giant, boring, waste of my time.

They suspended all plowing in rural areas here but are going to keep trying to dig everybody else out in town. I'm not excited about my chances of getting out tomorrow. My co-worker has yet to text me and tell me we're not open tomorrow... but I doubt I'll be able to make it off my road without getting stuck. Cars and trucks both are getting stuck all over town here. A friend said there's a truck stuck out in front of her house, the driver couldn't get it out so they abandoned it with the flashers on and now it's getting covered by drifting snow. The drifts are really crazy. One spot of my street in the center is almost bare to pavement, but it's drifted up at least a foot in other spots...

It's really just not safe to go out tomorrow... I wish he'd just text us and tell us to stay home. =/ I'm worried they'll both try to get there even if I can't get out and I don't think either of them should go.

Beanie, I'd definitely stay in if you can. It's just not worth risking your life or either damaging your car.

It's still snowing here... Just got back from clearing the driveway the 3rd time and now looking forward to the cold. Uugh.

A dog is a miracle with paws.

I don't think I'll be getting to work tomorrow either, saw a plow this morning, about 8 inches ago, and that was that. It's thirty miles to work, half on rural roads - not worth wrecking the van, or getting stranded in -30 wind chill.

This morning - the horses thought I was a bit loopy to be standing out in the snow instead of feeding them...

This morning's path to the house (from the barn), since shoveled several times today.

I'm really not looking forward to the below zero tomorrow with out the windchill factored in.
Kevin has snowblown our drive and walks twice today...both times he blew out potty spots in the backyard for Crowley, lol Crowley is much shorter than your doesnt take much snow to reach his belly haha

As far as weather...we are in official 'state of emergency' since 6pm today.

I wish we were getting a blizzard instead of just effing cold weather! Current temp is -16 but it "feels like" -41. Tomorrow I work both jobs. Retail one will never close but if it stays this cold, I have a feeling the rehab one just might!
