It turns out that "Oh crap..." was a good title for the last post, because that's exactly what Malden got! Two inches of...well, crap! It's a mixture of ice, sleet, and snow, slick enough to make driving treacherous but not slick enough to stay home from work. We almost never got the car out of the garage, but we got the job done, Mama and I. I wanted to try driving myself, but Mama wouldn't have it.
So here's our two inches of crap. This is the driveway behind the library, and one of the fields...
obscure song reference. Anyway, the power didn't go out, didn't even flicker that I know of, so that's a mega-blessing (seriously, thank you, God). Malden did eventually call off school, as did Campbell and Holcomb (where I used to work), and to my surprise St. Teresa closed as well. Mama told me that Glennonville usually follows Malden and Campbell's lead, so there's that. Four-day weekend for all of those folks!
So that's our winter storm over, and I have to say that I'm quite glad of that. The bad news is that Lexington is supposed to get hit hard. I hope Sister and Brother-in-Law have their supplies all stocked up! We did right before this mess came, and as it turned out we overdid it a bit! Better too much than not enough in a situation like this. If anything else comes up I'll keep y'all posted; otherwise, see y'all next Thursday!
