Post 2020: waiting for the snow…

Dougy love, love, loves snow! The forecast for today predicts 9-13 inches (23-33cm) of the stuff – in a blizzard. It will have a sheet of ice under it because the whole weather event began with an early morning rainstorm. Dougy is less enthusiastic about rain. Rain, he notes, is water. So is snow, I tell him. No, it is not! he retorts, and he is sure of that! Silly cat!

    • Fortunately, I have no reason to go anywhere till Thursday at 9:30 AM, and the snow should be cleared by then, or, at least, enough so I can get places.

    • Actually, that sounds like fuin! Only improvem,ent on that would be that it was big enough for me, toop, and someone else could pull us!

  1. Dougy is like those skiers who like Western fluffy powder snow. Our snow in the east is wet and heavy, much too watery. Good luck with the storm.

        • Feel free to look at my photos and say “brrr”! This storm started out with rain that turned to sleet, then snow. The rain couldn’t be absorbed into the frozen ground, and the entire region suffrs from massive flooding on top of the snow. I’m in a higher part of the state (3980 ft./1213 meters above sea level), but there has been some flooding here as well. The photos and videos of the eastern part of the state show whole towns flooded. Of coutrrse, many were built along rivers and creeks.

          • I grew up north of Chicago so I know about snow and bad weather. That is why I moved to Florida. We don’t get the snow here but I had to deal with flooding at my job a couple of times. The last time it happened on a Sunday when we were closed and then the water receded and hit again worse on Monday when we were there. We spent the day trying to slow the flow of water into the building to no avail.

          • Lots of flooding in the eastern part of the state…. Of course, people tended to build along rivers and creeks there. In the western end of the state, while there are rivers and streams, many communities rely of water from the Ogallala Aquifer instead of rivers, so tend to be less prone to flooding.

          • One town, Niobrara, on the Missouri River in Northewastyern Nebraska, rebuilt three tiumes, but after the first and second times, moved to a biut higher land. They were the exception. I think you are tright, though. We all know building on a flood plain or the beach is a recipe for disater, yet…!

          • As well it should be. I can see why people would enjoy living in such places, but you and I pay taxes that are used in disaster relief of people who pay hundreds of thousands, even millions, to live where a hurricane or flood occurs with some regularity. They should have insurance and it should reflect the precarious existance the owner choses.
