Often these signs bring with them difficult times.
The huge icicles, hanging off this local town office, usually mean coveted warm air and $$$ is escaping somewhere. Not good. Driving home yesterday, Elenka tells me many homes and establishments either had active shovelers at work or saw roofs that showed evidence of snow having been removed. Luckily, few if any of our storms this winter have brought rain. Water on top of all this snow would mean roofs collapsing and pieces of property damaged beyond repair in some cases. Not good. Another issue that these storms bring is gigantic snowbanks at stop signs around the city. In some cases, you put life and limb in danger, as you attempt to maneuver out into traffic. Not good.
Some of you have inquired, so here we go.
What are the statistics so far for the winter in these parts?
Around 74 inches of snow has fluttered to the ground since the first flake back in December.
A week or so ago, we got a 50 inch treat in just 7 days.
Looks picturesque, but it carries with it that nasty underbelly.
Forecast: Tonight 1-2 inches. Saturday into Sunday? Don't ask.
