This is Snow, Not Rain!!!

The weatherman really messed up this time. All I heard and read yesterday was how it was going to rain today starting around 11am and be over freezing temperatures for most of the day and then the snow would start around 5pm and be heavy then. I was still only hearing totals of maybe 4 inches. It didn’t seem like a big deal at all and might just make the commute home at night a little sloppy or the commute the next morning challenging. This forecast was way off. I wake up this morning and when I come upstairs to leave I already see about 3 inches of snow on the ground. All I could think was “What’s going on?” I cleared the car off and headed out to work. Over the course of the next 2 1/2 hrs, that’s right 2 1/2 hrs, I slowly made my way to work. The maximum speed I hit during the whole trip was 25 miles per hour. That’s the maximum. Most the the time, I couldn’t even tell how slow I was going because my car’s speedometer doesn’t mark speeds under 10 mph. The longer I drove, the worse traffic got and the snow wasn’t stopping. People trying to get to work at 8 were now mixing with the people trying to get to work at 9 and it was becoming a mass of super congestion. I saw a few people in the other direction getting stuck from no traction on the way up a hill. Luckily I was going downhill. The mix of low speed, tons of cars, and stop lights made it an agonizingly slow trip. I finally made it though I almost slid too far past the driveway. Ugh. I am afraid to see what the heavy stuff around 5 pm looks like when the rain in the morning ended up being 3 inches of snow. We might end up with a foot of snow for all I know. At least they’ve finally revised their snow total forecasts up a bit. It’s much easier to forecast when it’s happening right in front of your face though.

DDA is closing tomorrow since more snow will happen overnight, but will make up the day on Friday. Then we will finish the week’s work of 3D animation, custom web design, custom programming, copywriting, video editing, and more. We can handle any digital project you need to have done. Just give us a call or visit and see what we can do for you.
