Thinking about the snow day here, and how they recently had closed Atlanta down with less 3 inches of snow is a good analogy for all of us.

How something so small and insignificant can horribly impact so many. In our own lives, it can be the little things that cause the most disruption. We often think it is the big major disasters that happen to us, but at times it can be something small.

Back to our 20 degrees…

No check-ins till Friday and hopefully by then, we'll have cleared a path to the front door and shoveled out the parking lot.

Three rooms checking in tomorrow from TX and FL. I have called them, they are planning on coming here anyway (even tho our guv has declared a state of emergency). One is flying in, not sure  how that will go, all flights have been cancelled. We are expecting over a foot of snow.

Yesterday I cleared snow and ice to bare ground (salted heavily) to clear a path. Then I angled the car to withing one step of the deck steps to get DH to his 10 am doctor appointment. Since last night was single digits (it went down to 4) I stayed up until 6:45 - and then was wakened at 8:30 by a dead-air call (I was going to sleep until 9). Got Himself to the doctor (he cancelled 2 previous appointments due to ice & snow - one during the Road Trip).

In the old days when we were in Illinois, he walked without crutches (full-leg brace) in all kinds of weather and depths of snow. It is only since he started using the 2 crutches he stays in at the sighting of a snowflake. We have had layers of ice under the foot of snow. A lot of roads here are still slicker than snot.  Part of the problem is all the springs we have here and the hills. If it warms up enough to melt things a bit, the melt runs down onto the road and freezes into a really nice ice rink and snow/ice drift as you come around a curve. Found a couple of these coming home from the doctor - good thing nothing was coming in the other direction.

BTW - WV roads (State & County Routes especially) are at least 1 foot narrower per lane than most of you (especially in Midwest) are used to and there IS no shoulder, you are either in the ditch at the base of the hill or on the other side, hitting guard rail or going over the side.

We are like the post office up here. Don't care about snow, ice, rain, sleet, freezing cold... life goes on. But we love to hear about how miserable it is down south when you get snow.
