Last night they said that a cold front with heavy snow is rolling in from the west and that we should expect heavy snow fall between 6 and 7 AM this morning. Usually when we hear this we laugh, most of the snow gets melted anyway due to the warmer climate in our neck of the woods, esp. when the weather is coming from the West from the Atlantic ocean and the Bay of Biscay. If it is Easterly weather with the cold from Russia, then we get nervous but Westerly weather? HA! HA! HA!

Well, judging from the flurries of snow flakes tumbling like mad ever which way outside my window that weather forecast has been right, and the snow even sticks!!! Well I don't care if I get snowed in here but His Hubbiness™ is at work and needs to drive back about 50 kilometres this afternoon :(

I hope he got home safe! We got snow last night, too. Luckily for us, it wasn't nearly the inches predicted - all that hit several miles north instead. So I wasn't too worried about my hubby getting home - though he said the roads were so iced he nearly slid off the road once, but his Rav4 is pretty decent. I, myself, can't go over 10mph if there is even a hint of ice or snow on the roads ever since my vehicle got hit by a car 3 years ago. So we were 10 minutes late dropping munchkin off at school this morning. lol

Yep His Hubbiness‡ got home safe and sound, even earlier than we had thought. :)
They had predicted about 10 centimeters but it was more like 20 to 30 centimeters as it snowed from 7 AM to 7 PM today. Te cities over here and highways are all cleared, just our neck of the woods literally isn't. From the moment you get off the turnpike of the highway, there is snow everywhere and you cannot drive faster than 30 to 40 kmh (which is really slow).
