Prediction VS Reality:
Prediction: Up to a inch of Ice/ Very low temps/ 2-4" of Snow
Reality: 2-3" of Sleet/Ice w/additional 13+" of snow-topped w/Freezing rain.
Wednesday, they have cancelled school for the next two days- Our shipper for the puppies has also cancelled for this week due to the dropping temps and incoming ice storm. People are unhappy in TX and NY-Sorry :(
Thursday by noon the ice was arriving--mostly pelleted in form. The ice was to stop by midnight, Hmmm!
When Dark fell we had almost 2" of Sleet/ice on the ground. When I did my midnight and 2AM checks the ice was still arriving. Temp was very cold. New puppies were very glad we still had power!
What would day light bring? We had snow and better then 6" and still coming down- 8AM we had been blessed with 8 plus inches. STILL snowing.
Roads are very Slick and getting worse. EVERYTHING is Cancelled.
When darkness came we had over 13" but at this point we don't even want to measure ! Have everyone tucked in nicely. Power Please stay on!
Main Hwy linking Memphis, TN and the Canadian Border is shut down due to many accidents in a 16 mile area between our main town and the next town.
Saturday- It came and went- Between feedings and dragging the 200' of water hose to water everyone & draining the hose twice and breaking ice in between not to mention bringing wood and staying thawed out, how do you clean when there is this much snow! We went thru four sets of clothes each today.
Puppies that are less then a year have never seen snow are even though the temp is never above freezing they are having fun-the little ones --don't venture out to scary!
