Not doing the FEAT thing tonight, but made it home okay from work. After the TLCA BOD meeting I decided to go do some shoveling. Holy Cow!

Okay, we got 3 feet last week, and after the last couple days that had settled down to maybe a foot to a foot and a half in most places. Driveway and walkways had been shoveled/melted clear down to concrete/dirt as applicable. When the meeting started there was about a foot of new snow out there, after the meeting it was even deeper than that!

After I shoveled for about an hour, I came back and where I started already had over 4" on it!!!! I love snow, but boy am I getting tired of shoveling!

Power is out in much of the neighborhood, but (knock on wood) not here (yet). Thank goodness for small miracles.

Photo below is my 45 in the driveway, it had been totally clear before this latest round started.

They're calling for another 2 feet tonight, who knows how much tomorrow, tomorrow night and the next day! Yikes!

I did some driving for FEAT last night. Wasn't too bad, and it helped keep the car clean for going to work this morning. Bring it on!

My official back yard table top shows an additional 11" in Louisville this morning. Did one Feat run early today, they were looking for somebody else south of the city around 7:00 but didn't have anything else up north. Also pulled a neighbor up over a snowbank and onto the plowed part WITHOUT removing her front bumper. I swear, no matter how often you tell people to NOT step on the brake, that's the first reaction when they feel that first tug, I could see her brake lights shining on the snow bank behind her.

Alls well that ends well, bring on the snow!

Did you get the email to join the Yahoo group? I got an email from Gene stating he got my application, then a day or so later I was emailed to join the group. Then I got notified for alert and finally activation status. They are short staffed for dispatchers so they might be long in getting things your way.

Looks like we've gotten a total of around two to two and a half feet, it's seriously slowed down compared to last night. For now :-)
