Stormy Fernley

Lisa left me a message this afternoon letting me know that as of this afternoon, there was at least 12 cm accumulated snow on part of our front porch at Fernley House. Now this is nothing for those folks on the US East Coast who had Snowpocolypse Now recently, but it's a lot of snow by our local standards. She has been working to keep the sidewalk shoveled and swept. It's wet, gunky snow, she says. It wouldn't make a good snowman, according to her. Otherwise she's keeping warm, and the house is well stocked for supplies, in keeping with our standing policy. The snow should taper off tonight, and the next week is forecast to be clear, so it's unlikely the snow will have any lasting impact.

I wish I was home so I could do my part to keep the walks cleared, but if I had to be on the road, I'm glad I did it on Friday and not today. For a while, there were chain controls between Fernley and Sparks, let alone over Donner Summit. Those are gone now, but there are still chain restrictions off and on along I-80 between Reno and eastern California.

I went to the office today and got work done ahead on a Day Jobbe project so I can leave on Friday morning with a clear conscience.
