This is how much snow fell overnight. I left work about 4:00 yesterday when it started snowing in earnest. I have never experienced such a harrowing drive, and I've lived here since 1975. I drove about 12 miles in near white-out conditions, with snow falling so fast that I had to put my windshield wipers on high. With only a couple hundred feet of visibility, headlights appeared almost at the same time as I came upon the vehicle. At one point, a pair of headlights crept past me on the left, then almost immediately I saw a pair on my right side - freakout! It was the lights of a car that had spun out, but they were able to pull back on the road after I passed which is good because I was afraid to stop.
I took a picture of Zaria this morning. The distortion is because I had to shoot through the window. I still hadn't shoveled the deck. She came to us from Oregon so the only weather she had experienced before coming here was rain. She's chewing her cud (is that what llamas do?) and completely is contented. I believe she's having Andean dreams.
Fire season in full swing.....
