A Well Equipped Man Comes in Handy
I absolutely hate calling my hubby at work and telling him I got stuck! Or having my kid backseat driving! But alas, stuff happens ;) My girlfriend and I joke that we are a different kind of high maintenance woman…she has a barn full of horses, and I have a pasture full of cows. Oh well, the driveway needed plowing anyway. And I don’t get too much grief, because after almost 30 years we both have many memories of bailing each other out of predicaments.
The snow was only up to the label on my Muck boots, but it was wet and slick. I just had to sneak over the hill a tad and the rest was history. I was committed. Luckily I know when to quit trying…
We really lucked out, we topped out at 20″ of snow and by 3 am Wednesday it started to rain, no Columbia Gorge ice, it is forming east and north of here. We are just getting rain, and our 20″ of snow is now about 3″ of slush. All that rain combined with snow melt mean trouble downstream from us. Our power was only out for a day and half and we consider a few broken fruit trees and one mildly stuck pickup pretty good for a storm system this size. Others have not been so fortunate.
