They pulled us in early from the street yesterday because of treacherous conditions. And today they didn't even send us out. The problem is that the roads are solid sheets of ice, our vehicles are puny two-wheel drives, and the City of Charlotte only plows a few main roads and leaves the side streets to languish. So it would have been unsafe to send the vehicles out today.
Now I'm home early to watch the snow falling in grand, pale sheets from the brilliant, icy skies.
I can dig it.
|This was actually taken last night as I was getting ready to drive Carole to work. The snow made things so bright that the automatic flash on the camera did not go off.|
|This morning at work. The parking lot was an ice rink. This was just before the next band of heavy snowfall hit.|
|Our street as I turned in.|
|My tracks atop the frozen snow. We had heavy snow, then sleet, then freezing rain, and now more snow.|
