I Know That I’m A Snowbird but…….

Enough is Enough!

With two major winter storms battering our area within days of each other, road crews were kept busy around the clock trying to keep roads open for travel.
The high winds that followed last week’s snow caused many roads to become impassable. Schools and many area businesses closed on Wednesday and Thursday with the schools remaining closed Friday. The road to our family farm remained drifted closed until dusk Thursday. I captured these photographs as the road crew was pushing their way through the drifts

As darkness enveloped the landscape I was able to make this long exposure (3.2 sec) capturing the one truck sitting still as another with its lights flashing passed by.

More snow is in the forecast for tomorrow; this time only 3”-5”. I hope their right; I have had enough deep snows for one winter.

Your photos remind me of more snow forecast for tonight and Monday here where we live in southwestern Ohio. I suppose you might get some of it but it depends on where this one is coming from. We got a lot of snow still here. I don't think it will clear up until spring.

My goodness, that's a lot of snow. Hope it clears up for you soon.
The first picture of the "snow bird" is priceless.
