I truly believe that I have never seen this must snow ever in my entire life. Now, I’ve been around snow. S. California does have mountains that can get pretty packed with the white stuff. But I have never experienced it to this capacity.
I got stuck in front of my sister’s house last night. My car wouldn’t budge. We shoveled the snow around the wheels. We broke ice underneath the wheels. We even used something my mother got from HSN that you put under the tire and it gives the traction. That didn’t work either, surprise surprise. After about an hour of digging and shoveling and running my tires into the ground (so it felt), I finally got out of the snow embankment on her curb with the help of my sister and 12 year old son pushing my car from behind, to give it momentum…..only to get stuck 20 feet further. Wash….rinse and repeat.
Apparently, the County we live in, here in Idaho, doesn’t plow the residential streets. But from what I’m hearing, this area hasn’t received almost 10 inches of snow in a few days since 1985! So neighborhood streets are pretty much undriveable. Everyone is getting stuck.
Yeah, that is a big “Welcome to Idaho” for me. My first winter really has me wanting to just sit in my apartment and binge watch every show out there. I don’t even want to go to work.
But it is still very beautiful…IF I’m inside staring at it from through a window!
But on a much cooler note (pun is absolutely intended)…I won 2nd place at my apartments’ Xmas decorating contest….$100! That was really an unexpected surprise. I tend to be very competitive and I was kind of obsessing about winning this contest.
