We Lucked Out In Missing The Brunt Of The Snow Storm Again

We Lucked Out Again In Missing The Brunt Of Another Snow Storm Yesterday.  Even though the snow started to come down around 10:00 a.m. and did not stop until after 9:00 p.m., we only got about 6" here in Middletown, CT.   This was the second snow storm of the year, and so far we have been on the low side of both snow falls.  However, January is starting off with lots of the white stuff, and more is expected on Tuesday.

Even though we missed out on the brunt of the snow yesterday, the roads were very slick, and we had a 20+ car pile up on I-91.  The pile up caused I-91 here in Middletown, CT to be closed for several hours.

Above is a picture of my neighbor snow blowing his driveway, and his grandson D'Andre doing a fantastic job of supervising grandpa.  Below are a few more pictures to give an example of what my neighborhood looked like this morning.

We got next to nothing - but, for the empty bread and milk shelves in the grocery stores!  LOL  Yours looks beautiful, George Souto!

Hi George - that looks pretty much like Armonk, NY.  Not much but still spent two hours with the snow blower on Saturday night after it stopped.

Good for you George.  But you still have more snow than I do here in Minnesota.

Lucky you, George! But it sounds like there is another storm heading to the East and Northeast for this coming week. Maybe you will luck out again! There are many parts of the country having some nasty storms - we are due for some heavy rain starting tonight or tomorrow - I'll take it!

Be safe this winter! The pretty white snow can be deceiving on pavement. Foolish drivers need to slow down to prevent those pile-ups. There's ice under all that snow and I don't understand why drivers don't get it!

Good morning George. We missed most of the snow too, but I know there is a lot more winter coming. Meantime, it is frigid here.

We lucked out, too, George, in my end of Charlotte. BUT that was not mitigated by the freezing weather we've had since Saturday!

Hi George - Pretty easy ride, but we're just getting started. I don't mind the snow, but we had a really hard cold spell here over the weekend. Friday it was -21° - today it's 52°. It's going to be an interesting winter.

We were very fortunate for sure.  There were a total of 26 cars in that pileup with over 30 requiring medical treatment

I'm glad you lucked out, George!  Those are wonderful views however.  I drove to another community today, and encountered a number of major road closures due to flooding.  I made it alright, but it took double the miles to navigate.

Good evening George.  I think we missed the brunt of the snow down here in Florida as well.  (Sorry, I couldn't help myself.)
