Live from the arctic circle...
Where do you put all this snow? We've had more snow in one week than we've ever had in a whole year.
Now before I continue I have to mention that I have had computer problems again. While I was in the middle of writing this post or uploading a video, playing a game or just cruising the web the computer just shuts down. I did manage to upload a video (below) and I accidently published a blog instead of saving it. I never finished it. At this point it's late Sunday morning and guess what? It's snowing. By Tuesday we could get another 2 feet of snow. I have yet to go out and shovel. It's not snowing hard. It's not a blizzard like last week but it will continue until Tuesday. I guess it is what it is. At least the Patriots won.
As you can guess driving around in this stuff is not fun. Until today the roads were in good shape. The big problem for me and I suppose everybody else are the giant piles of snow at the end of streets. You cannot see if anybody is coming on your left or right. Another fun exercise is driving down two way streets. You pray nobody comes in the opposite direction. But despite it all people seem to have taken all this in stride...at least up until now. What can you do? It's nature. Still the thought of having around 5 feet of snow by Tuesday is not real comforting. The city and the state are running out of space to put any snow they have removed. The law prevents them from dumping it into the ocean because of pollution concerns. When I last went to work on Thursday almost half the parking lot was taken by giant piles of snow. I can't imagine what it will look like when I go back on Tuesday.
Ok. I'm getting mighty hungry. I think I'll make a pasta, chicken and vegetable dish then I'm going to have to go outside and clean up the snow that has fallen so far. Ugh!
I'm outta here.
