We are deep in the deep freeze this week. It was in the minus zero range last night and won't get past 9 degrees F today. We got eight inches of snow a couple of days ago and the Governor declared a State of Emergency! The county was closed. There was no garbage pickup and no mail delivery on Tuesday. The schools are closed.
I guess that Virginia is technically the South.
I managed to drive down the hill in my UTV even before a neighbor came around with a snow plow. I put my lone trash can out on the road. It's still sitting there. Yesterday, after taking care of the animals, I saw the sun come out and knew that it was my big chance to get out and get a haircut and buy some supplies. I made a break for it. It worked out really well because when I got home just after noon, the next weather event was starting. It was this current cold front and a light coating of new snow.
The forecast is for more interesting weather and a warming trend with rain. That sounds jolly and exciting.
