The police have closed the main highway here, due to weather conditions, snow squalls and zero visibility. Luckily we were not planning on going anywhere. We still have power, for which I am grateful.
The snow squalls are predicted to persist into Thursday, with the possibility of 40 more centimetres of snow. We already have 30 cm of snow on the ground.
Attila will be getting up very early to clear the snow out of the drive so that he can get to work. Of course, if the road is not ploughed he may not be able to get out anyway.
When the winter weather is this intense Attila gets worn down, he works outside. In November it was rain, rain, rain. Now it is snow, snow, snow. I wonder if we will be getting sun, sun, sun, and if we do it will probably be very cold, cold, cold.
Rural living revolves around the weather in the winter.
