When I signed off the blog yesterday, the predicted snow had not begun...it was late in arriving. The winds however had picked up by 2pm and by 3 o'clock games were getting cancelled, not only for last night, but today and tonight as well...It says we have had somewhere between 8 and 12 inches, with near 14'" in Darke County, just to Mercer Counties south...the truth be known, whether 8, 12, or 14" it is the wind that is the making this "Level 3" Emergency a bummer.....35-40 miles per hour out of the Northeast, is causing havoc, and cancelling just about everything scheduled. Of course despite our "blizzard" of sorts, we have nothing compared to what they are getting in Maryland, Philadelphia, Delaware, and the DC Metro....24-30 inches have been reported in some areas.
Patricia dug, and I got the snow blower out for a few minutes this morning...just enough of a path for Anissa to be dropped off for the weekend. Other than that there was no reason to continue...the wind is still way too strong to keep the drive and sidewalks clear.
So, I've been wiped out of games this weekend, as has everybody else withing shouting distance...1(a Freshman game) will be made up at Wapak next Friday, before the JV game, so I'll do a double dip for that one....the other contests will be lost in the batch of multiple contests that will need to be made up sometime, somewhere...
Photos of the buried 1977 Buick and other yard shots are the best I can do...until I venture out further.
