Snowpocalypse 2011

Unless you’re vacationing in Tahiti, laid up in a coma, or living deep below a West Virginia cow pasture in a coal mine, you’ve probably heard there’s been a little snow. From Maine to Chicago through the Plain states into North Texas, it’s a snow storm for the ages. In the middle of Oklahoma it started out with heavy sleet around 9:00 p.m. Monday evening, turning into heavy snow after midnight. Blizzard conditions set in and the white stuff fell until late in the afternoon on Tuesday. It was a stroke of good fortune that we only got a foot and never lost power.

A third of the country is buried in snow and temperatures hovering around OMG! For the record – I put snow in the same category as root canals, tax audits, and the Taliban. Today was a shovel the driveway day, broken shovel and all, to see if it was possible to get the vehicle out onto the unplowed streets. I think I’d rather have bamboo shoots pushed under my fingernails or forced to watch Jersey Shore. (The Horror!)

It’s supposed to climb above the freezing mark on Saturday for the first time since Monday evening. It might get all the way up to a balmy 38°. And then fall like a rock back into the teens. Won’t be much snow melting anytime in the near future.

I’m going to leave you with this guy – The Sam Kinison of Weathermen!
