Winter has finally arrived in force here in my neck of the woods. We've had a bit of snow, and of course plenty of cold this winter, but not a lot all at once or even that stuck around completely.
Last Tuesday I was to drive to my orthopedic surgeon for a recheck, but the weather told me "nope". Blizzard type weather meant I didn't want to drive 160ish miles by myself early in the morning.
I had another appointment in the same facility with my infectious disease doctor on Friday. My mother also scheduled her procedure to upgrade/replace her pacemaker that same day. Soooo.... the plan was to go down the day before to be there on time. Thing is, on Thursday, we 'had to' go to a bull sale at my uncles place before we could leave. Consequently, we didn't get headed south until after 3 PM.
Of course there was weather again. Ugly weather. We made it, but the last stretch that usually takes an hour, took a good two hours. Heavy snow, dark, fluffy whiteout conditions. Fun! LOL
We got home Friday evening, and today my dad and I went to another bull sale about 45 miles from here. By the time we headed home, the next batch of snow had settled in. I think we have gotten about 9 -10 inches so far and it's not letting up. I don't think this was forcast for that much!
I'm thinking my brother may just have to push some snow after this lets up, even tho he doesn't believe in doing so. Says it goes away eventually anyway! HAHA
