This is our first winter in our new townhouse — so far, snow removal has been pretty awesome (and with how much we pay in monthly association fees, I’d expect it to be awesome). Today though, I woke up at 7am to find 6-8 new inches of snow. Three hours later…..and no snow removal yet. Nobody has even showed up at this point, and our unit is third from the end in an L-shaped driveway. Normally I wouldn’t care this much, but we were supposed to leave at 10am for my in-laws Christmas party the next state over. Sooo….I guess at this point we’re probably snowed in for the rest of the day. Anybody else snowed in?

We are rained in in the Blue Ridge Mountains. There was plans to go four-wheeling and clay-pigeon shooting with the fam, but there is a 100% chance of rain all day! Looks like it’s a movie and Scrabble day.

Not snowed in, but it’s really icy outside so I’m staying in. Even the grass is covered in ice…

We were supposed to have killer rain here in central VA, but the rain stopped about two hours ago, the sun came out, and it’s humid with a high of 74. This is the wackiest winter weather I’ve ever seen here.

Nope, we’re having pretty dry weather in Wyoming right now. Lame! I want snow!!
Question @cmbr:, can your car literally not make it out of 6-8″ of snow? That seems weird to me, but maybe you don’t get a lot of snow and don’t have 4WD? We’ll get two feet overnight here and still need to charge through it to get to work…

Uh no but why don’t you just dig yourself out? If you want to be out and about. We have a fine snow coming down and I already been out and about in it.

@lolot: here, 6-8″ of snow would shut down the city and work/school would be cancelled for at least two days lol. We dont drive in that lol.

@Sassygrn: If we dug ourselves out, we’d be digging out 22 units worth of driveway — we live in a complex with 24 units and we’re second from the end on a driveway that only has one exit. We’re driving a 2WD Toyota right now, so we don’t get great snow traction. Even better, our city itself does a shitty job of plowing, so getting to an on-ramp is still pretty hazardous right now, even five hours after the snow stopped.

@cmbr: Wait, 6-8 inches of snow is snowed in? Is this adding to more snow that you originally had on the ground? Where I’m from, we don’t get “snowed in” unless it’s >3 feet and you can’t physically maneuver a car through it. Nothing shuts down for 6-8 inches.

If we were at home, we’d be enjoying heavy snowfall right now… However, we drove 14 hours yesterday to my parents house and experienced a 55 degree temp shift on the way. The high here in southeast Virginia is supposed to be 78 today!

@wideeyes: I’m sure we can physically leave our house, but I’m not really wanting to drive through 8 inches of unplowed snow all the way to the freeway on-ramp in my 2 wheel drive Toyota Camry. The drive to the in-laws is four hours even when there isn’t snow on the ground. I’d rather wait until the roads are better. Here even the freeways aren’t plowed well — it’s pretty bad out there right now. Apparently our city will only compensate plow drivers up to a certain number of hours per week, so once they reach that, they head home and nothing gets plowed. It’s a mess — I’ve never lived anywhere that does so badly with snow. Nothing is shut down here, we’re just playing it safe right now.
