Another winter storm misses us

Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

Yesterday, a winter storm warning was issued for this area, saying we should expect 2-5 inches of snow and some ice to go with it. But just like all the other major storms this winter, this one mostly missed us. We got a dusting of snow, and that’s it. During my ride to work this morning, it started to rain, despite the fact that it was about 20 degrees. It looks like we’re getting some freezing rain right now. My ride home this evening should be interesting.

Most people are glad we didn’t get the snow, but I wish we had.  We haven’t had a significant snow all winter, the biggest being probably an inch. And I’d really like to do some riding in snow. Usually we get a couple of big snows each winter … I’m still holding out hope, although at this point I sure feel ready for spring.

    We got the wonderful mix of freezing rain, sleet and slush last night. It was beautiful with the ice all over the branches when we went to bed, putting visions of ice-covered berry photographs into our heads. This morning, it was just all about the mud. *sigh*

    As someone who has now experienced around 100 inches of snow so far this winter, I would trade places with you in a heartbeat.

    I would rather ride in 12 inches of nice powdery snow than over the results of a half-inch of freezing rain, any day.

    I grew up in Tennessee, about 100 miles due east of Memphis, where sleet/freezing rain was the normal wintertime precip, and I hated it then as much as now.

    We, here in Denver, are slater for 3 to 6 inches of Valentine’s Day snow, according to the weather-guessers, but it’s 55 degrees and sunny, right now.
