My First Three-fer
I came home after a harrowing ride home to three eggs in the nesting box. Actually yesterday was a four-fer since I got one in the morning as well. And one this morning too, although I'll give that one to today.
It was a slippery, slide-y, long ride home last night because it was snowing so fast that plows couldn't keep up. There was a long train of cars going 15-20 miles an hour. At two points on the ride, different car in front of me couldn't get up a hill. I was extremely worried about MY hill, since it's much steeper than those baby hills that stopped cars cold. But it turned out fine - the problem was compressed snow from multiple cars making the whole thing slick. Since I was the first vehicle going up my hill, it was easy, relatively speaking. And it was plowed recently - what luck.
Maybe 18 inches yesterday and another 4 inches overnight. Good thing I brought my work laptop home. Looks like I'm in for a while.
