It Really Came

Generally I don’t put much stock into what the weather people say.  I can usually flip a coin and make a guess my self with better results but yesterday they actually came through.  No doubt you’ve all heard of the winter blast we got down here in the south and while I know many of you got much more snow than we did, it was record breaking for us.

Some parts of the state got over 2 feet and were 20 below zero.  It snowed for a solid 8 hours straight and made it the worst road conditions I’ve ever driven in and I’ve lived in both Utah and Idaho, so I’ve had my share of winter driving.  See what makes it so bad here isn’t really the snow.  It’s the fact we have humidity.  Humidity = ice.  Lots of ice.  Ever want to know what it would be like to drive on a ice skating rink come on down and give it a whirl.

I took a video with my phone early this morning to give a little live footage but it wouldn’t upload to anything.  Sure glad I spent all that money on a phone that won’t do what I want it to.  Let’s be honest, it’s probably user error.  But I do know how to use my camera so here are a few shots.  I didn’t want to drive anywhere so I was limited to my house.

I took pics of the snow last week and you can view them here if you want.

The Weather Man Was Right

We actually got some snow and ice here yesterday which kind of surprised me.  The meteorologists have been telling us off and on for the past few weeks that we were going to have winter weather but it’s never been true.  So when they predicted it earlier this week I rolled my eyes and blew it off.  But we did get some and around one in the morning I went out and took a few pics:

No flash was needed and I wanted to take more from down the street but at the risk of one of my neighbors seeing me out in the wee hours of the morning snapping pictures and thinking I was some sort of loon or perv, I decided against it.  No need for cops or for some concerned citizen taking matters into their own hands.  I did take a couple more that night and some this afternoon of the ice in my back yard and posted them here.
