Tapping my heels together right now

If I never post again it’s probably because my office was sucked up to Oz–there’s some downright ungodly wind out there right now, and it’s knocking things over and around and any other direction you’d choose to point (the weather service is saying gusts of 40 mph, which seems a bit low). Just gonna hunch here next to my computer and whisper “there’s no place like home” over and over…

Rain break

This is the first time I’ve had to wear a jacket in three months!

1/2 inch

Half an inch of rain might not sound like much to those of you from back east somewhere, but here in the high desert and canyons that’s enough for flooding.

You’d never guess that I’m standing here wearing a fleece jacket and a winter coat over it. Daggum Algore and his lying global warming…

Wet wet wet wet wet wet

So last week we got something like 8″ of snow total. The past couple days it’s been raining, a pretty constant drizzle+. Now there’s ice, slush and water, all mixed in interesting proportions in all the high-traffic areas, pedestrian and vehicular.  And when you slip, you fall into a puddle that’s three or four inches deep, it fills up your pockets and shoes with almost freezing water. Ask me how I know…

Just 5 more minutes, ma?

I got up and shoveled the walk, and now an hour later you can’t even tell where I went. The snowplow hasn’t been seen or heard from, and my mother called me after leaving for work (the school she’s at today is only a couple miles away) and said that this was the first time she’s ever been scared about the roads in her Subaru. Seriously thinking about calling my boss and claiming a snow day–or at least a snow [until the gorram snow stops and the road is cleared]. As I said yesterday, ever since I rolled my jeep I’ve been very unenthusiastic about driving in the snow, and right now this could probably safely be called a blizzard, at least anywhere that isn’t North Dakota.

Must be Monday

Can I just say that ever since I rolled my jeep, driving in the snow has really lost its appeal?

Nick of time

Well, it was still snowing last night and now there’s fog so thick that I can’t hardly see the mailbox at the end of the driveway. So it’s a good thing that my Uncle and his girlfriend are on their way to Belize. Good for them, anyway. No tropical vacation for me this year, though. Sigh.

Looking at snow in the forecast is different when you live in the high desert

When you see this and go: “Finally! It’s going to try and be winter again!”

Capture

I mean, all due respect to our friends in the south, but the mountains here need the snow more than anyone needs the balmy weather, else no one will be taking baths next summer. We haven’t gotten any snow in almost a month, and with the warm weather we’ve had the past two weeks, it’s actually started to run off in the mountains. Which is Not A Good Thing when you’re still in the month of January.
