Snowmaggedon (not really)

Oh man, ALL day on the radio seemingly like every 10 minutes. Winter storm warning! Winter storm warning! Winter storm warning! Lather rinse repeat.

I was well aware and in fact I had hustled out to my fave big-box grock store and the post office early in the morning when the roads (and everything else) were still dry as a bone and Mr. Golden Sun was still sleeping. Sometime in the late morning (everything was still dry), I went out to haul my empty garbage carts back up to the side of the house. It felt a weeeeee bit brighter than usual and I did a double-take when I saw Mr. Golden Sun TRYING to make an appearance. Five minutes later he was totally gone. A few hours later, the snow started coming down.

It looks like a lot of snow (and it’s probably still coming down) but I don’t think the depth is all that great. Alas, I *do* think it’s wet snow. I can get out with Cygnus but I think I will hunker down and read (Babel) and *try* to make myself sort out old crapola. I do have my work cut out for me (with the snow I mean but also with the crapola). I’ll have to be cagey about shoveling so the super-nice young husband next door doesn’t get to my snow before I do. If he does, I may just let him go for it and try to insist on giving him some cash even though I doubt he will want to accept it. If I knew the snow was gonna stop overnight, I’d just get out there at 0-skunk-30 but I don’t think that’s “god’s plan” for this storm.

I wonder when Mr. Golden Sun will make his next appearance?

P.S. My fingers are crossed that the power doesn’t go out! Whole house generator maybe? The “portable” one works fine but I can’t deal with it by myself.

    You have two generators? I used to have one but didn’t think I could handle it so I got rid of it. Now I just have to suffer through power outages. I hope the shoveling goes OK; do you need to borrow my garden rake? LOL

    I got about 6 in of snow on my side of town. Very heavy and wet – so glad I don’t need to shovel. And this morning the power is out. I saw a neighbor post that a line snapped a couple blocks away – I am hoping that means DTE will address it quickly? Or not.
