Schools are closing Monday and Tuesday... It's 38 and only rain as of right now. I hope they aren't over-exaggerating it

I just had to go out and shovel by the gate... the snow had drifted up so high the dogs could have walked up the pile and hopped down over the fence should they have been so inclined.

They are telling everybody to stay off the roads here because people are getting stuck and emergency crews can't get to them. The cold temps are moving in. 5 currently, windchill of -19... oh boy.

I do not envy you, having a tiny puppy in this weather!

Went to let the dogs out to pee and almost couldn't open my door due to the drifting. O.o Luckily I was able to get it open about a foot and a half and squeeze out to shovel a clearing.

So, so happy I have one dog that doesn't mind the snow and another that is in love with it. I do not envy my mother trying to convince her Dachshund to go out to pee when there are drifts almost as big as Abrams.

Finally texted my co-worker to tell him they haven't plowed ANY of the roads around here so it's looking like I will be stuck tomorrow. They haven't plowed out where he is either so he told me to stay home. I can at least do some work from home, so if my boss sends me anything by e-mail I can work here. I don't think any of us are going to get out tomorrow. They're having a really tough time plowing out just the main streets, never mind the side streets.

Don't look - it keeps getting lower and lower almost by the minute here.

We've been opening ours all day long about every thirty minutes or so and clearing the deck off to keep it clear! It's pretty bad. I bought socks for all the dogs to wear on their feet tomorrow when they go out and their coats are all by the door.

My mom doesn't even know if we should try to clear off the drive and stuff tomorrow since they're saying so cold you can get frostbite in five minutes...

I just finished shoveling out our driveway and our neighbour's. Any of you snow jealous people want snow, come on over and you can pick some up, free! I'm sure there will be enough to go around again by the end of the day.

On a side note, we live on a circle at the end of a road. They have to send a road grader out because a regular plow can't really make the turn too well. My neighbour, in all her brilliance, figured leaving her car on the street overnight was a good idea. By the time the grader saw her car, he was probably committed to going around the curve. Looks like he nearly made it, stopped, backed up, and then went forward around her car. Sucks to be her this morning.
