Grump Central Archive: Week of 18 March 2018
Saturday, 24 March 2018
I'm off to do volunteer work today, which will be my first trip out into the post-fourth-nor'easter landscape. Assuming all goes well, I won't be home until late tonight. I'm not one to suffer from cabin fever, but this is good timing.

Yesterday it peaked in the low 40s, so there was a lot of melting going on—which is good, because I have someplace to go tomorrow. But I need a lot more melting to happen today if I've got any hope of making it down the driveway.

Official Grump Central Accumulation: 8.5 inches (there was a little drifting, with snow over a foot in places). Temperature at 7:30 AM: 31 degrees. Mood: the opposite of white. The only bright spot: amazingly, and thankfully, power was never lost.

This new nor'easter is playing out like a long, slow meal at an Arctic all-you-can-eat buffet. Yesterday, the appetizer was a tossed snow salad with way too much sleet dressing; this morning, we're having a palette cleanser of light freezing rain before the main course of 8-14 inches of heavy snow, with wind on the side. Who ordered this disgusting meal?

And here we go, starting it all over with another week of... nothing. Well, nothing except another 3-6 inches of snow, starting tomorrow. Oh, joy.

The snow is just about all gone—and of course we've got new storms on the way to remind us winter ain't over 'til it's over.
