I know we don't get as much snow as some places, but come on. Misery is misery. It's eight degrees with snow like tiny ice pellets. Winds 30-40 mph, pelting any foolishly exposed skin raw within seconds. I don't even know what the wind chill factor is, but it's definitely well below zero. As the leading edge of the snow passed through last night, we had thunder and lightning because a severe storm from the south collided with a snow storm from the north. Apparently the Gulf of Mexico and Canada are having a turf war right on top of us.
The snow doesn't look that deep, but that's because the land's been scoured. The drifts are waist-high.
As crappy as it is here, I know it's going to be worse as the system travels toward New England. Y'all stay safe.
