Breaking Records

Yesterday, I mentioned we had broken the second oldest record in history with this blizzard. Today, I can say we broke all records. The most snowfall previous to the past three days was 29+ inches set back in 1889. This blizzard brought in 36.2 inches of snow or 91.948 cm. In other words, we got a lot of snow. I checked closings this morning, and there's still a lot closed as the city slowly digs out. I just saw a city bus pass for the first time this morning, so those are back in operation. I've always wanted three feet of snow. Now, I got it. Yes, I'm happy, and will enjoy this until the temps warm and the snow melts and spring takes hold. When I was on Twitter yesterday for a minute, I saw one of our football players was calling this snowpocolypse. I'm sure it looked like that with the whiteout we got yesterday during the heaviest day of the storm. Yesterday alone we got 12 inches, which over three days averages out a foot a day. My notifications are done, and it's time for me to eat before I need to get ready to leave for the library while they plow the parking lot. The picture is one I took last night by the light of the street lamp with all lights off in the house of the snow and how beautiful it looked even at night. How is your day shaping up? Thanks for reading.

I do not like snow and cold weather, I do not like hot either, I prefer mid-seasons, Spring and Autumn.

Spring and autumn are beautiful times of the year, not too hot or too cold.

@LadyDuck , My first top season here is the Spring (but a normal one) and then, it is the Fall, Summer and Winter.

Three feet of snow is three feet of snow too much for me!

That's because you live in LA. I had my time in California. I prefer it here.

@JohnRoberts That explains a lot. I was born here, but I've lived in several locations. All nice, but there's no place better than home.

@Marilynda1225 Yeah...but in the same season one likes it, another hates it. In any event, why is it happening in April?

Hi Valerie. I think this is what you mentioned to me yesterday about having heavy storms. Is the snow storm getting worst everyday?

I always thought of Wisconsin as the cheese state. Now I am thinking of it as the snow state, too.

We're the Dairy State. It even says so on our license plates. After this past weekend we could easily be the snow state.

@just4him I did not know it was called the Dairy State. I thought it was called the Cheese State. I love cheese. When I think of Wisconsin, I think of the color orange.

@just4him I"m afraid we didn't get as much as I thought. I saw and heard it falling in the early morning hours before I went to bed, but nothing seemed to be wet the next morning. The wind was blowing, and the plants I had hoped God would water looked stressed. The soil was loose and quite dry -- even in the pots.

With the weather doing whatever it wants, you never know, you might get a blizzard in July. Now, wouldn't that be different?

Sunday night we had really bad storms here. I had power through it. Yesterday we had nice weather, but I didn't go out. I was frustrated because a movie I taped didn't tape all the way and my computer was acting up. Today it's a little cooler. I went to get the mail, but I had to go to mailbox twice to get my best friend's birthday card mailed. (her birthday is Sunday) Then I walked around the house with Lily and did some belly dancing. I hope to read some more of my book and color.

I'm glad your power didn't go out with the storms. I'm sorry your movie didn't tape. Was it because of the weather?

@just4him no. Direct TV has free previews (this weekend there is one of HBO and Cinemax) sometimes. This movie came on before the preview ran out, but ended after the preview ran out. So it didn't tape all the way. I thought it would stretch, but it didn't.

Was an interesting day yesterday. Got quite wet and rainy in the later evening. (Better than the Snow you have been getting). We tried doing Uber eats for the first time, and it was interesting.

I know not many people like snow, especially in April when we're supposed to have spring. I like snow any time of year, especially in winter.
