First snow of the season

"8 inches of snow."  That is what my neighbor said last night when he came over to shovel our front path in the early evening.  We had more through the night and traffic was a mess everywhere.  Even our lazy little street was a parking lot as drivers left the jammed main streets and tried to find alternate routes.
The snow began at noon and came down at a rate of an inch or two an hour.  It was pretty for a while and then we began to hear all the stranded stories.

The weirdest story had to be the camel that was spotted off one highway.  Apparently he was being transported to an event in Philly and when the trailer carrying him got stuck, the driver took him out to keep him safe.  Einstein (the camel) and his driver eventually turned around and returned to the animal refuge.
I think Einstein made national news last night :)

I worked on binding a Christmas quilt for my granddaughter and think I will stay in and sew today.  Hopefully the temperatures will rise and I'll be able to walk Scout later today or tomorrow.  She does enjoy the snow, but preferred to sleep most of the day away :)

Have a safe and happy day!

What a mess for you. We had a few crystals of sleet yesterday as the temps hovered right at freezing. Sun is shining here this morning; I hope it moves your way.
