BTW- our weatherman said tonite that the SPRING SOLSTICE has begun- Yeah, right!
No, not moving to get a way from the snow, just want to down size and get out of Maryland. After getting out of our driveway yesterday we road up to PA to check on the new house and to see what kind of job PA does on there roads. I don't know how much snow PA got but we ended up with about 26" and we are 15 miles a way.
I work at the Air and Space Museum at Dulles Airport in Northern VA and the Museum close today for the second day in a row. They had 32" of snow and from what I understand over at Dulles Airport they had a roof fall in on one of there hangers that houses small aircraft and some of them were damaged. I know one thing VDOT is not good about taking care of there roads when it snows, at least not the routs I travel.
Snow shovels and snow blower, I wish I had invested in them this year. We have 3 shovels and they are wearing out, called around and Lowe's was the only place that had them. We jumped in the truck to go buy 3 and by the time we got there they were sold out, Lowe's is less then 15 mins a way, as far as snow blowers I have a small Craftsman 21" but it is not big enough for this type of snow, so if you are looking for a snow blower good luck there are none to be had.
