Mid-blizzard update

We’re in the middle of the storm now.  The snow has been coming down hard and steadily since yesterday.  With all the wind blowing the snow around it’s hard to be sure just how much has fallen, but it looks like we have about a foot and a half so far with more to come.

We decided we’re recovered enough to clear the snow on our own, so we’ve been doing that a little at a time.  We went out three times yesterday to clear off the driveway as the snow accumulated.  This morning we had a big job to clear off the night’s accumulation, then we’ve been keeping up with it every hour or two, pushing away what’s built up.  It’s a big job, but we find it easier to do it this way than try to muscle through a huge pile once it’s all fallen.

I’m expecting to hold classes tomorrow, although I’m sure a lot of students will be out.   The weather forecast shows three more storms coming in the next ten days, although so far none of them is predicted to drop more than a couple of inches.  We’ve had such a dry winter up to this point I was half hoping to get through to spring with minimal shoveling, but things are taking quite a turn now.

Still, all in all, we’re keeping warm and dry.  We’ll see this storm through, like all the others.
