Snowmegeddon? Snow-pocalypse?

Well, it was pretty miserable Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, and then we weren't going anywhere on Wednesday (cancelled Wednesday's patients on Monday) so all we had to do was dig out of our driveway and wait for the streets to be cleared. Which, in our town, they were, by 4 pm. Earlier actually, but the plow guy made his final pass around that time and our area was negotiable by vehicle.

I'm hearing that in other areas, it took till later Wednesday night to get the roads clear enough to travel on them. But we were in pretty good shape. A day of shoveling/snow blowing the driveway and then resting from the efforts. (And it did take some effort! The drifts were half again as tall as the snow blower so we had to shovel them down to manageable height before the blower could be used at all...)

Chicago had their own problems, mostly related to a single jackknifed bus that screwed up Lake Shore Drive. If Daley was running again for mayor, he'd probably pay at the polls for the failures up there, but alas, Richie is calling it quits.

I was around for the 1967 blizzard, and the 1979 blizzard, but I didn't have to dig out of either of those. in 67, I was too young to help my dad much, and in 79, I was a freshman at college. The college maintenance department apparently handled the snow. We walked everywhere then, anyway. And I don't recall any big huge drifts up there in Chicago. (They may have been there, but I didn't see them.)

So this is the first time I've actually ahd to dig OUT and clean UP after one of these types of snowfalls. What fun.

Later all.
