Just made a run to Loweâ€™s for some wood and bolts and every store parking lot between here and there was full. Even Loweâ€™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 theyâ€™ll need. Q13 is staying on air ALL DAY to cover the snow. Traffic cams from â€œover thereâ€ 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, itâ€™s snowing pretty good out there. Crap, now itâ€™s snowing harder! Bigger flakes. Way bigger. (10 minutes later theyâ€™re small again.)
Maybe this will turn into a real snowstorm. Just as long as it doesnâ€™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 donâ€™t have here.)
Itâ€™s 1313 and SWMBO is heading home early cause they might close the ferries the worse the Wx gets. Donâ€™t blame her. Like her, Iâ€™d much rather she was stuck on this side of the water â€¦
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 yâ€™all know how this all turned out tomorrow. Gonna go ahead and post this â€œjust in caseâ€ we lose power or I wind up going down to the ferry landing to pick SWMBO up.
