They said it was gonna snow yesterday. They said it would start after lunch and end after dinner, with the heaviest snow falling right around the time everybody leaves their day hunting gigs to come home.
Mom decided to leave her day hunting gig early and work at home, which she did. The snow started almost exactly at 1:00 PM and ended at 9:00. Mom says we got 8 inches of snow, which means it fell an inch an hour. Which is a lot.
Mr Karate called about 4:15 and said to Mom, "Good. You're home. Stay there." There were stories of folks taking up to 2 hours to get home, where usually it would take 30 minutes.
Mom is glad she missed driving in the snow.
But she still had to shovel it.
I am -so- fortunate to be formerly feral. I have a great home. Nice and warm. And nobody ever expects me to shovel!
