Snow Snow Snow

I'm one of the few in my office who worked nearly an entire work day.  I put in 7.5 hours today with no lunch hour in the hopes I'd get to leave early.  

The snow was to begin at 10am with a winter storm warning starting at noon.  It began snowing about 9:30am.  We're now in a blizzard storm warning.  In speaking with others around the US this winter it seems Ohio is a little different from other states.  We have snow emergencies.  Level 1 means crappy conditions; be careful.  Level 2 means worse than crappy conditions; only drive if absolutely necessary.  Level 3 means unless authorized emergency personnel stay the heck off the roads or you'll get a ticket. 

My county is in a Level 1 right now with surrounding counties at Level 2.  I'm sure it was partially due to snow drift, but when I was shoveling our sidewalk I discovered the snow completely covered the front steps (to both house entrances).  That's a good four or five inches.  We're expecting about 15 or so between today and tomorrow.  I may have to make tunnels in the snow for Sammy.  :)

Flights in and out of Columbus are cancelled.  Classes, graduations, Easter activities, etc. scheduled for tomorrow have already been called off.

Be safe!

And pictures of Sammy in Snow are requested, of course ;)

We've been at Level 2 all day. Apparently on Sammy's first trip out he didn't know where he was supposed to go. Now the snow is taller than he is. I just saw someone walking their dog (about the same size) in the remaining tire tracks. I think that's where we'll take Sammy.
