Mother Nature Was Not All That Harsh Arond Here...

...and thus the weather forecasters were wrong once again! This morning there may have been 1/2 inch of snow on the ground on my side patio, maybe an inch and a half on the concrete sidewalk out front, and maybe three inches on my car. That certainly was not the 4 to 6" or more that was predicted along with high winds and much higher gusts. They kept stressing the "or more" too. As it turned out, no further accumulation landed upon us even though it snowed a bit more.

That made me somewhat disappointed that I had put off my pending road trip due to the weather forecasts I had heard yesterday. It would have been no big deal to drive in that snowfall. Then again, I heard a weather report saying that the snow had been piling up high and winds were blowing sideways in Patterson, NJ - only about 37 miles northwest of here. I would pretty much have to have driven through that to start my trip so maybe it is better that I decided to wait until tomorrow. Decisions, decisions.

Had the oil and air filters changed on my car today. After that I was a bit hopeful I'd get out of here today but tomorrow is only a day away and I had too much to do today not to put it off until then.

In case you are wondering, I am Arkansas bound to visit Brendan.

All the best,
Glenn B
