Panhandle Hook

We have had quite a snowstorm here in Columbus and throughout the midwest. This was one of those classic "panhandle hook" systems, originating in the Gulf of Mexico, coming up through Texas, and then directed northeast by the jet stream. Megan and I had about 6 inches of snow, and then about 2:00 p.m. yesterday afternoon, we received a mix of sleet and freezing rain, totalling about 3/4" of ice on top of the snow. I ventured out this morning at 7:00 a.m., our neighborhood roads were snow covered, and I burned some rubber off of Megan's tires heading out to the main road. Finally, as I was almost to the intersection of Morse and High Streets, WCBE announced that all non-essential state employees were on a 2 hour delay. I called work, and they confirmed this. So, I have a rare opportunity to write a wee bit in the morning. Enjoy our snowy weather, because, although it may cause problems, to get this much snow in central Ohio is uncommon.
