The Day After
March 15, 2017 11:54am CST
After yesterdays horrible snowstorm Stella we were left with over a foot of snow accompanied by sleet and wind. This caused drifts more then 4 feet in places so it was actually hard to determine how much in actual inches we got. Not that it matters. Snow is snow is snow and it all has to be removed regardless if it's a few inches or a foot or more. My daughter left for work this morning and came home within a half hour. She said the roads were treacherous and driving was at a snails pace. I'm glad she came home and possibly avoided an accident or even slipping and falling and hurting herself. Since her commute is almost 2 hours who knows what she would have encountered when she got to work. No matter how old your children are you worry about them. The snow removal company was here all day yesterday cleaning the streets, sidewalks and driveways. It doesn't even look like they accomplished much since the wind kept blowing the snow back over the places that were cleaned. They are back today salting the streets and removing additional snow from the sidewalks and driveways. Through all of this our power stayed on. Other areas weren't so lucky but I'm glad we didn't lose power since it got very cold overnight. My day started off with my normal routine....nice warm shower, dressed and then a wonderful hot cup of coffee. I'm here later than normal and I have no idea where the morning disappeared to. Now it's lunchtime and I'm thinking a tuna salad on rye bread with some pickles and potato chips would go well on this snowy day. I was going to have soup but then the tuna sounded so much better. That's what's happening in my little corner of the myLot world. What's new with you??

Tuna sounds good to me, too! Your daughter was smart to return home. My son, who lives on the shoreline, only had about 7 inches. He will check our home on Saturday. Our neighbors didn't call him, so we are guessing we didn't lose power either. Now, I'm off to soak my face in vinegar!

We got really lucky and did not lose our power at all either. I was pretty surprised and happy. Here the most I heard of people getting was 28 inches. Some people don't understand you can't measure snow drifts, or what has been piled up from plows going by, or what has fallen off their roofs or trees etc....So one person wrote she had 38 inches in her yard and I know that is completely untrue.
