No update for Tuesday, because it was a bit of a bust. In the morning, most of the snow had gone, so I went to work. At noon, it started snowing quite a bit, so I started driving home – as did everyone else. It took almost 45 minutes to drive what is normally a 10 minute drive. It was snowing in earnest, and I was having some trouble with traction on starting. I stopped for petrol, and had trouble getting through the snow on the pavement, and the windscreen wipers were going full speed. Then, I went home, which is 0.9 miles (measured) away. There was no snow at all at home. Amazing. What a difference 0.9 miles makes.
And so it continued – none of the promised snow appeared. The temperature crept towards 40. Disappointed, I went to bed.
Something must have happened overnight, because when I got up at 8 there was two inches of snow on the ground, and it was snowing quite nicely. It continued snowing a little all day, and we ended up with about 4 inches on the ground. Temperatures held around 32, so it is all quite crunchy and icy. Looks like another snow day tomorrow, when it is due to start raining, which should clean it all up.
