Last week, the midwest was blanketed with snow and freezing cold temperatures. Here in Salina, we only got about 3 inches of snow on top of a sheet of ice and it resulted in 3 days off of school. We were lucky though... many areas around us got 8+ inches of snow and blizzard conditions.
Today, we got our blizzard. It started snowing about 2 a.m. and still hasn't stopped. By 1 p.m., we "officially" had 8 inches. School didn't get cancelled, even though the roads were insanely snow packed and the salt and scraper trucks just couldn't keep up with the snowfall. We really feel snowed in! Here is the view on our back deck.... about 12" of snow next to our back door with a drift about 2 1/2 feet on our back deck:
As crazy as it seems and despite the fact that it was freezing cold, Ledger threw a fit until I let him "walk in the snow". I insisted that we put on his boots, gloves, and hat and then he was OFF. He plowed through the knee-deep snow all the way from our front door to our mailbox!
