Looks like we may actually get no snow tonight, first time in about a week. There is more due tomorrow, so hopefully while we have a break they get some of it cleared out of the downtown area.
What is your town's snow plowing schedule/guidelines?
I can't believe they only will start plowing after 3 inches here. We've had accidents all day, yet they plan to hold off until tomorrow since it is supposed to continue snowing. What??

Hope you can get LittleCS's scarf finished- bet it's pretty & cozy!!

That is crazy!!!! They plow and salt the main roads here for even a dusting. They won't go into neighborhoods unless we get 6 inches. Mainly because the trucks are to big for most of the smaller streets, so they have to hire it out to other companies.

I just finished reading a story related to that in our local paper...

They plow here when we get snow, main streets, bus routes first then the rest get done.

Interesting! Thanks for sharing, CS.
I like how much your town is concerned for public safety.

I know, right?!

Glad you guys are safe & sound 💚

So many employees were late today because 2 of our main highways were a mess! Accidents, cars in the ditches. Sad.

Good evening,

Long day here, was able to get a lot of work done today at the job. It is all about the hams now, so we are pushing them to free up some space.

We finally watched "Christmas Vacation" tonight, it's usually one of the first movies we watch but time is disappearing so quickly this year.

If you all could keep my grandmother in your thoughts and prayers it would be greatly appreciated. Her cancer has come back and they will be amputating her arm to try to keep it from spreading. I am nervous about it, she is nearly 90 years old and a tough woman, but I can't help to worry.

My wife and I are heading out to get all the "loose ends" of Christmas done tomorrow. She takes a personal day from work so we can have a Christmas season date day to get everything done. It is suppose to snow so we are hoping we will be able to go.

I hope you all had a great day.

Good night, everybody.
