Just made a run to Lowe’s for some wood and bolts and every store parking lot between here and there was full. Even Lowe’s was busy busy. Was going to get gas at Safeway on the way back but the lines had 2 or 3 or more cars waiting. There are pictures online of store shelves empty from people buying stuff they think they’ll need. Q13 is staying on air ALL DAY to cover the snow. Traffic cams from “over there” do look pretty heavy at times.
It did start snowing just as I pulled into my driveway. Really little flakes you could barely see. Now though, it’s snowing pretty good out there. Crap, now it’s snowing harder! Bigger flakes. Way bigger. (10 minutes later they’re small again.)
Maybe this will turn into a real snowstorm. Just as long as it doesn’t turn into an ice storm like we had back in 1996! We went without power for a week during that one. (But was glad we had a wood stove for heat!)(Which we don’t have here.)
It’s 1313 and SWMBO is heading home early cause they might close the ferries the worse the Wx gets. Don’t blame her. Like her, I’d much rather she was stuck on this side of the water …
Took the dog for a walk. He LOVES the snow! Idiot. About an inch so far. It always looks worse on our deck cause the roof of the house deflects a lot that lands on the rails. So it looks like its snowed more than it actually has. You get used to it.
Anyway, will let y’all know how this all turned out tomorrow. Gonna go ahead and post this “just in case” we lose power or I wind up going down to the ferry landing to pick SWMBO up.
According to the Weather Weenies we’re going to get several inches of snow around here starting Friday. Good thing it’ll be the weekend cause anything over a light dusting and this place just falls apart. You think I’m kidding?! NOT! If there’s more than an inch of snow on the ground Monday traffic will grind to a halt. Schools will close. Belfair won’t unroll the sidewalks. Neither of the two of them.
Been doing a “Lost In Space” marathon. TWO DAYS and I’m not even all the way through season 1. Each episode is 51+ minutes; not like the 40 (or so if we’re lucky) minutes we get now. Still, Doctor Zachery Smith reminds me a lot of Sheldon Cooper. Or versa visa. Either way both are asshats.
So, didn’t finish this or post it last night. Obviously. Got busy being with SWMBO. Barely checked in for the MCARC Wednesday Net.
Updated Wx report: Possibility of 2 feet (or more) of snow locally over the next week. Next storm should drop around 8 inches and the one after that (Monday-Wednesday) should drop the rest. Or Could, I should say. Nothing is written in stone around here when it comes to the Wx.
Dog and I are freezing our asses off on our walks though. All our puddles and pools of water are frozen over. Digging into SWMBO’s tater bed the top 2 inches of dirt are frozen solid. Taters are probably ruined. Pretty sure new one’s will grow this summer. Maybe a sheet of glass with a 3” gap over the top during the winter?
Anywho, really not a whole hell of a lot going on around here. Think I’m getting pretty tired of Dr. Zachery Smith and his antics. Dog and I have been on more walks. Started looking through the trees to see where I want to shoot another line to fix my long wire antenna. (May need some help with that job!)
Think we’ll just chill for the rest of the day. Maybe.
