Here I am on Saturday, doing my best to move some of this heavy, wet stuff out of the driveway. If you look behind me, that is supposed to be our street. On Sunday, I made a path about a foot wide to our front door so we could get out if needed. It's still slippery and icy out there, but the temps are too cold to do much about that.
Needless to say, from this photo, you can tell why we didn't get our mail or newspaper on Saturday.
This split rail fence runs the front length of our property. I couldn't believe that the snow met the bottom railing.
The kids finished their school day Friday but most schools cancelled for today. Even my husband was off work as the county of Allegheny declared an emergercy and only essential personnel had to report. Apparently, most of the city has impassable roads and a lot of neighborhoods have no power.
On top of what we already have, the forecasters are calling for another storm tomorrow through Wednesday. The local weather guys are saying we are getting another 4 to 6 but since they missed the mark so badly last week, I think I'm staying safe and going with the Accuweather forcast which is saying 6 to 11 inches, with possible ice.
At this rate, it looks like the kiddies may be off school the rest of the week!
