According to the weather rep;ort, we’re going to have snow tonight and into the early morning hours (before the sun comes out and melts it all off again.) That’s been the routine once or twice in this Spring-like Winter… not like the snow drifted Winters I grew up with in New England.
The snow we’ve been getting here is half rain and very squishy… makes your shoes all wet. It’s very unpleasant to walk the dogs in (they don’t seem to like it either.)
Oh well, groundhog or not, Spring isn’t far away.
The storm stayed to our east and effected the coastline all the way up to New England. New York City was snowed in this morning, with closed airports and really slow moving traffic through semi-plowed streets.
My daughter Cassandra and my grandson Milo left Connecticut before the storm to get down here to stay with her sister (where we are all going for dinner tonite), and my son and his fiancee got out of Connecticut early, too, heading for DC last night.
We had a few snowflakes that didn’t leave a trace of anything… but it has been cold and quite windy here in Shepherdstown. Hope your weather is bearable today.
