January 10, 2012

As I write this, I am watching a tow truck pull 2 cars out of a snowbank across the street! Wow! We have had quite a bit of snow lately. Fortunately, we haven't had as much snow as some of our neighbors. Our only highway leaving town going south was closed today and will be closed tomorrow because of avalanches. The Whittier Tunnel is also closed. The apartment parking lot had been plowed Friday night. Look how much snow fell during the night. I hope this SUV's owner has a good snow broom! It has snowed another eight inches since we took this picture. The snow plow pushed up the snow from a small parking lot of about 20 parking spaces and it was as tall as the trash dumpster! The temps are expected to be warmer tomorrow, maybe even into the mid 30s. That will really mess things up and cause some of this to melt. Yuck. Give me snow any day over ice.
