When I am writing this we are expecting snow (yeah, sure, I believe it when I see it. For real).
But the area is--indeed-- prepared for a snow event.
I don’t mind. Bring it on (if it actually happens).
Like half of Washington, I went grocery shopping yesterday.
You know, when the threat of snow is lingering, people tend to go nuts in preparation for it.
You’d think you’d be isolated for days when you see what people are buying.
Well, with this “event” I think we might be “isolated” for one day, not more than that.
I could be wrong, of course. But so I think….
The store was packed with people.
And, for some reason toilet paper is in high demand.
View from the back side of my house. Canon pics. The sunny, bright, blue pics in this post are all from Sunday. It was one of the coldest that I have experienced in this area.
Harris Teeter, where I was yesterday, was well stocked. I’ve seen stores---in the past--- being almost emptied out. Like when we had the super-blizzards of 2010. You know, Snowmaggedon.
The weathermen, and women, on the local news stations go nuts when a snow storm lurks around the corner.
They’ll warn you, they’ll inform you, they’ll broadcast like crazy.
Yup, that is snow in Washington for ya!!
When I step out from my house onto the golf course it looks like this. When I took these pics it was bitterly cold. It was so cold that Peter and I only could stay out for a little bit.
As I’ve said before; All is well and swell as long that there is power and heat in the house.
Oh, and as long as you have internet, of course.
Your Wi-Fi is a given on snow days, it just HAS to work.
I have also said THIS before: DO not judge!!!
It is a bit different when it snows here.
The cars lack winter tires, the snow removal is NOT like we are used to in Scandinavia. They just don’t have those resources here.
The schools will close, but I have written about that subject numerous times before, and you will just have to scroll down my feed to find one of those posts.
It is a given that the schools close when there is a lot of snow.
Enough about that.
Looks can be deceiving. Even on a sunny, clear day it can be PAINFUL out there.
I will venture out on camera walks today in the snow (if we get any). I love that!!!
Yesterday, I took a short walk after I had been to the store. It was SO grey, and SO cold (-14C in the middle of the day, 12F). As usual, when the temps are frigid, I was the only one out and about on my walk. I guess most people want to stay inside when it is this freezing. Hey, I don’t blame them. The best part of an ice cold walk is the moment you get home again.
Update!!!Well, Virginia has NOW been declared a State of Emergency. The snow is a GO!!! As I am writing this (Monday night) the snow is falling with a steady rate.
The pics below are all taken during a short walk yesterday. IT was SO cold!!!
By the lake. iPhone pics.
A path by the lake...
I wish you all a good Tuesday.
