Latest image from Verne's mobile picture phone. On Sunday I called around town and found that the Sears in Lakewood had trucked in Snowblowers for sale. Since the Scout is perpetually stuck in 2 wheel drive we needed something more to get us dug out from this record breaking winter.
Amanda spoke to our neighbor up the hill who said that in 20 years of living in Coal Creek he has never seen a winter like this.
Today we had 115 mph winds (catagory 3 hurricane) that closed hw93, hw72 and US36. It took a road grader 2 trips and 1/2 hour each just to cut through two 9' drifts that had Shimley Road down to two lanes.
