The first snow of the season arrived today. My neighborhood was in the fringe of the high snow area and got around five inches or so of wet gloppy snow. Toward the north and west accumulations doubled that. In far northwest Oakland County, where my sister lives, they got eleven inches.
I can report that the Subaru seems to do very well in the snow/slush so far. I’ve had no slipping and sliding, and it feels very sure-footed, if a car can feel anything-footed.
I took only one photo so far, but it was this morning when we’d only gotten about an inch and a half. It’s very pretty, though, the way the snow is sticking to the bare trees and glistening in streetlights.
The snow won’t stay, probably. It’s supposed to get warmer in the next few days, and it’s so wet it’ll readily melt. I’m sure we’ll get more. Guess I’ll need new winter boots after all.
