The weather lived up to the hype, I think. My little area of the world got between six and seven inches of snow overnight, with more possible the rest of the day. As of 10 a.m., the local office of the National Weather Service was reporting between six and eight inches across almost all of southeastern Michigan. It’s windy too. In fact, about thirty miles from here is the southern end of a blizzard warning—now THAT’S winter. I like a snowy winter, except for one thing: the need to shovel driveways and sidewalks after a big snowfall. Shoveling will probably take me all day, which is just as well, because I am not going to go driving off to a mall today, not till I know the county has done enough plowing of the roads.
The snow started in earnest yesterday evening, while bonezman and I were at Finvarra’s Wren‘s annual Solstice concert, this time at the Birmingham Unitarian Church as part of MAMA’s Coffeehouse. It was a fine concert and we had a fine visit with the head wrens, Jim and Cheryl Perkins. A great time was had by all, well worth venturing out in the snow.
Now, if only I could get the wind to blow the snow drifts out of my driveway.
