As per the caption, this snowfall happened on December 4/19.
The weather forecast on two TV stations last night talked about a few light flurries of snow overnight. Imagine my surprise in the AM to see 12 cm of snow on the driveway and walks. Weather forecasting continues to be an inexact science and a job whose employees can be wrong at least 50% of the time and still keep their jobs. As my Kiwi weatherman friend always says, if you want to know what the weather is doing, stick your head outside.
And so I did, at 7:30 AM to shovel for an hour, again at noon to shovel for 20 minutes and again at 1:30 to shovel for another 15 minutes. As I hung up the shovel each time, right on cue, the snow fall started again. There was nothing for it, but to head back inside and have an afternoon coffee.
It is on days like today that I am happy that my commute is easily completed indoors. As my Patty always says of winter’s white wonder….”Isn’t it beautiful?” Why, yes it is!
Snowflakes piling up
on driveways, sidewalks on roads
causing car pileups.
