My state was bracing itself for a big Winter storm this week. My area in particular was supposed to get some ice and then about 2-3 inches of snow. Instead, we got all ice and a dusting of snow. Give me the snow, NOT the ice. The ice makes EVERYTHING bad, whether you know how to drive in it or not, or whether you are prepared or not. Friends in the central part of the state were not as lucky. They received ice as well as snow and our bigger cities were not prepared! Thousands were stuck and stranded on our interstates and highways because the cities were not prepared and jobs and schools were not cancelled. I had many friends who had to abandon their cars and walk miles to a nearby friend's house or their own. I'm glad to know they are safe now, but there are still some making their way home. Needless to say, we didn't know what to expect, but hopefully in the future weather plans will be better implemented. Also, I'm thankful to have spent some winter months in Tahoe where I learned how to safely drive in the snow. Although, I haven't left my house in the past two days, except to take these few photos. Stay warm and enjoy! :)
It wasn't completely a "winter wonderland" as you can see, not everything got covered. But, it did provide enough for some sledding. However, I will admit, that beyond taking these pictures, I didn't venture out in it.
Not even our whole yard got covered, but our streets were pretty treacherous in some parts.
