we are expecting " a historical snow storm" today, tuesday and wednesday. ice as bad as the 2006 ice storm and snow as bad as the 1982 blizzard. we had about 1 1/2 foot of snow in 1982 and the ice was a inch or so. also have 40 mph winds in evening. got to come home early today from work not planning to go in until thursday and that is only if the roads are ok. since i work in the lawn care industry, not much going on in the office in this type of weather! the ice has started, roads were ok on the way home, grocery stores busy. we are going to hunker down

today was my first day back to work since the middle of October. it will be hard getting back into a routine, just as it was hard to get out of a routine. today was a 48 degree sunny day which helps and on the way home i noticed these clouds and stopped on the side of the road to snap them. unusual!
