The latest storm to blow in has been more aggravating than usual, mainly because we had to go out in it. Laura’s Jeep was in the shop and we had to pick it up today, mainly because we’ll probably need the 4 wheel drive if the snow continues falling the way it has been since early morning.
Even though I followed a pair of snow plows all the way into town, the road was still very slick. These guys had their work cut out for them as the snow fell faster than they could clear it.
This is 4th Street, one of the major thoroughfares in town. As you can see, the plows were really having a tough time clearing the slush.
The first part of the return trip was a little easier. Heavy trucks use this section of road and that helps to keep the surface a little warmer. Caution was still required as slick spots were everywhere. That’s Laura in her Jeep ahead of me.
Back in town the plows were making progress.
As we passed through town the snowfall picked up again. You know there’s a lot of snow falling when you have to fire up the snow blower to get the car into the driveway after a quick trip to town! This guy was pulling out of his driveway as we passed his house on the way to town and he couldn’t get back up the driveway without clearing the snow when we passed by again 20 minutes later!
The farther west we traveled the faster the snow fell.
Out here the plows were still having a tough time keeping up.
There are those who are happy about snow. Buddy the 4 legged snow plow was having a ball!
