Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
The snowplow man couldn't make it through today in time to clear the driveway for Judy to nose back in. We've had over a foot of snow in Midcoast Maine and whiteouts on the Interstate made for treacherous driving. Eventually I shoveled out the head of the driveway, the huge bank of snow the town plow had left, and threaded Judy's car through the tunnel thus created. I'll have to take some photos tomorrow.
Most of the State offices were shut down today but Judy works for the Legislature and the person in charge thought they should all come in and twiddle their thumbs. They were finally released at noon time.
Down on the coast on mother's farm, she got about a foot and a half of new snow but fortunately pretty light stuff and this time around she didn't lose power. She's got a nice propane back-up generator which has gotten a lot of exercise this year. And when you're 93 years old, you need some back-up.
