Blizzard of 2008

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Columbus, Life

Here I am reporting directly from Blizzard Central, where it’s STILL snowing, and will continue to do so for several hours. It looks like I didn’t have to worry about making it to the farmer’s market anyway, as it got cancelled.

Here’s a picture of our deck, with a foot already on the ground and another 3-5 inches yet to come. Notice the dog shaped path through the snow. Our Beagle was doggie-paddling through it, with our Shih Tzu close on her heels as the snow was over her head. I don’t think I’ll be leaving the house for days….

Update 3PM: Still no signs of stopping, and coming down like gangbusters. The news says that we still have a ways to go, and have set new records with a total snowfall of 18 inches in less than 24 hours. If you have plans to dine out tonight, make sure you call the restaurant to make sure it’s open today – many popular ones are closed at least for today (like Bexley Monk, Elevator, Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, The Clarmont, Boston Market, Rotolos, Rusty Bucket, Schmidt’s, to name a few). Keep up with the lastest closings/cancellations here. We’re under a Level 2 snow emergency here in Columbus at the moment, but please – it’s bad out there. Don’t drive unless you have to. Stay warm and stay safe. More updates later….
