Left home this morning...no precipitation. None at all. Then...a few occasional flakes - just enough to make you say "maybe it's starting to snow". By a half mile down the road there were consistent flakes - definitely snowing. By a mile down the road it was constant - big wet fluffy flakes that make visibility difficult. By two miles from home there was visible accumulation - tracks on the road, grass turning white. By the time we made it the 7 miles or so to the fire station where the bus was parked we had at least a half inch on the ground and it was still coming down hard and fast. Hours later - by afternoon bus route - the fields and grasses were brown again, the sky was grey and all that remained of the snow was the shattered remnants of a gigantic celestial snowball fight.


Driving in that mess this morning was definitely interesting. I didn't have a huge amount of trouble driving but stopping was a challenge. By the end of route I'd seen at least 2 vehicles in the ditch and knew there were alot more. I was thankful to be able to get safely home and stay home until afternoon route time.

For the first time in a week I felt pretty good today - had some energy and was able to get some cleaning done. Made supper tonight, did an invoice for B and have washed eggs. There's much more to be done but will only get the dishwasher reloaded tonight.

Don't have much more to write about. Hoping the word picture is clear.
