We have about 6 inches right now- and I know that for a fact, because I had to shovel the driveway. We are getting ready to have another big storm coming our way- anywhere from 6 more inches to 2 more feet. Yes, 2 more feet.
It's an early snow- and we don't have any money in this state for snow removal. The highway that I am closest to just gets the MIDDLE plowed, so that both lanes of traffic have one tire in the plowed section in the middle, and your other tire is on snow. Side roads don't get plowed at all until storms are over. I think that kids are going to have a lot of free time this winter- they sure won't be going to school if this keeps up!
When I moved here I didn't own a real coat. I did have one long Calvin Klein dress coat that was warm (it was my "winter" coat in Texas) but it just wasn't enough up here. My husband bought me a parka last winter and I bought a new winter coat this year to wear back and forth to the car etc....Here are my piles.
These are my lighter weight leather coats. There is actually a third suede blazer- just like the one on the left. Around here if it hits 35 degrees in January it's convertible weather, so these fit it just fine!
These are my heavy winter coats. I dumped a 4th wool coat in my 41lbs of karma earlier this year. The wood coat I got rid of just made me look like a dumpy, little old lady. It was from Benetton so that should say a lot. Anyway, on the left is a long wool Eddie Bauer coat with an attached hood. Warm, but funny looking. Keeping it though. The middle is a brown faux suede winter coat with fur lining. WARM. Decent looking- especially with jeans. Not to heavy. The last coat on the right is my Columbia parka. Super warm. Black and grey so it hides dirt etc...
Gratuitous picture of what I made for dinner- sausage, peperoni and ham pizza.
