We ended up with 9" of wet, heavy snow in SE S.D. Schools closed for the 3rd day in a row. It's looking like 40-50F for the next few days ahead. It will take quite some time to get all of these tree limbs & branches cleared away all over town.

Good one.

The snow finally started here. It was just ice pellets at first. Kinda nice for folks who drive to work that it waited until after the morning rush hour.

We may get more snow tomorrow or it might be rain.

I figure the cities won't do much about the snow until they see what happens tomorrow.

It is very overcast and raw out. We are expecting a heavy rain starting somewhere around noon. I am in the house for the day.

I finally thought up a name for my scooter. It is way bigger than the last one I had and just flies when it is fully charged. Brunhilda! She doesn't like the rain and shuts down if her console gets wet. Fussy thing she is.

She is a brute. I really have to be careful when I use her.

Brunhilda can be very scary. Her horn is really loud and scares the bejesus out of folks.

Our sidewalks are not in the best condition. I just fly over them. If they are really bad, then I ride in the street. The folks in the area know me and get out of the way when they see me coming. I don't stop for anyone. I keep the headlight and tail lights on so the cars can see me. Even they slow down and stop. If I lost Brunhilda, I would become completely housebound.
