Cassi Creek: Snow began falling about 1230 yesterday. By 0700 today, we had 8 inches of wet, heavy snow. I scraped and shoveled the decks and stairs about 0800. Now, at 1211 the total for this storm at our location is 10 inches.
Today is Gloria’s birthday. We have tickets for a local theater production in Jonesborough tonight with dinner reservations preceding. The morning’s concern had been whether or not to run snow-packed and potentially black ice – covered roads to get to Jonesborough. The theater provided the answer to that question. Tonight’s production is cancelled for safety reasons.
I have back up comestibles for dinner that should be an adequate substitute for the Cuban meal we had planned.
All in all, we have not been subjected to the icing conditions that have been such a problem for other locations this winter. There’s reason for gratitude.
