My First Snow

It's snowing! It's really really snowing! As in huge snowflakes, sticking to the ground, landing on your eyelashes, watch out for the ice, snowing! I guess this is one of the weather marvels of living on the east coast. I guess this also means that I should probably turn the heater on in my house. Oooh, and does anyone have any tips for driving in the snow? Sooner or later I am going to have to uncover my car and hit the road.

Here's a photo from this morning (8am) when the radio told me that it was a "winter wonderland out there". I have to say I was a little dissapointed.

But here's a photo from lunch time (12:30) where you can actually see the huge snowflakes in the air!

The weather forecast is for between 1 and 4 inches of snow today depending on where you live. How's a girl supposed to work when she has thoughts of ice skating, sledding, snowman making, and skiing running around her head?!

Awesome! Looks like fun. Here are some driving tips:
- drive in the wheel tracks of those in front of you
- take turns very slowly, especially u-turns
- carry chains, because you never know when you will need them
- defrost your windshield before you go anywhere, and get ready to wipe the inside down again!
- don't use your windshield washer when it's freezing outside (big mistake!)
- watch out for your door lock freezing; you might need to thaw it

That's all I have from a business trip to Colorado during an extreme blizzard last January.

Sorry, but I'm not impressed... You want some of our snow!? You can HAVE IT!
