Honestly, I thought this whole snowpocalypse thing was my fault. I talked smack on Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction. He had the same one last year. We have had such mild temperatures over the last decade that people have forgotten what winter really is. So, I called the furry fat rodent a liar and told him to bring it, and he did, TWICE. Later I was informed that Blizzard #2 was actually Farmer Josh’s fault, but more on that confession in another post.
We received well over 5 feet of snow in 5 days! Who has time for that!?! Everything closed and I mean everything! Philadelphia shut down as did Lancaster. Highways, byways, the turnpike and interstates, all closed. The drifting snow was and still is a major issue. Oh and by the way, today, around 2, we are being issued another storm warning. This time we are only going to get about 6 inches…only. Awesome.
Here’s the photo tour of what went down.
Thursday afternoon, day 2 of being snowed in. I finally made it to the sidewalk! WooHoo!! Now I had to dig out a space to put my car in once the snow emergency was lifted and street parking could resume. Unfortunately that meant digging out my vehicle that was buried a few streets away as well. Sigh.
Friday, day 3. Freedom! I managed to make it to work, but as you can see the roads were still a mess. If you didn’t have 4 wheel drive chances are you weren’t going anywhere. Snow plows and earth diggers were still out in full force trying to combat the drifting snow.
