Here is how my morning started -

Here is a good look at the 5-6 inches of snow I faced this morning when I got up. The worse part is I HAD to go out in it. The best part is I have my Jeep with 4-wheel drive. I was actually making pretty good time this morning until I got behind some traffic wanting to go 20-25 mph and no way to get around them. Once I turned for the last leg of my 18 mile drive to work, I was by myself on unplowed roads and was able to go 40-45 mph and clocked in at 8:00 on the nose. I made it on time! I am so glad that I don't live in Kentucky with the 1+ inches of ICE. I spoke to several of my contacts down there and found out that a large part of the state was out of power and a state of emergency had been declared. Stay warm and safe everyone involved in this latest hand that Mother Nature is dealing us.


  1. Gotta' love 4WD!! Glad you made it there safe.

  2. That's great that you have that 4 wheel drive jeep. Yeah, my mom, sister, niece all lost power. They have taken up residence at a local hotel for a few days. My sister's husband works at LG&E and rumor has it that it could be 10 days or more until all of the power is back.

  3. Amen, ice is crazy and dangerous - snow is fun! :) We had some ice, but thankfully everything is a-ok here! :)
