Here are some photos from Tuesday that I took at my work- three days after the first snowstorm hit:
And as if the 22.5 inches of snow weren’t enough last Saturday, we got pounded again starting last night around 10pm.
There was about 3-4 inches this morning and then it started sleeting so everything was icy and gross.
Here are some photos from about 11am this morning:
There was a small window of time late this morning when it didn’t snow at all, but then it started coming down hard. By late this afternoon we had 7.5 inches. As I write this, we have had 12inches and it is still coming down; about an inch every 45 minutes with no intentions of stopping until early tomorrow morning.
These were taken around noon today:
Getting a work-out the only way I could!!!
And these are from around 3pm:
And at around 5pm:
Around 6pm my parents (who are crazy!) went for a drive and my mom captured these amazing shots:
So yeah, snowed in. Today. And again tomorrow. And possibly Friday.
With only a week and a half until my first race of the season this is a very bad time to be snowed in. However, it seems I did a little something to my groin area last weekend and it is causing me a bit of discomfort. By not having the ability to go out, it is forcing me to stay in and take care of myself. Rest, Ice, Stretch. Repeat and repeat!
For now, the only working out I am doing is shoveling and some ab work indoors. And lots and lots and lots of stretching! I hope to get to the gym Friday but I plan to just cycle, not run. And even that depends on the weather. As for the weekend, I will see how I feel over the next couple of days and then decide how I want to move forward with my planned 6.5 miles on Sunday. I don’t want to do anything to further aggrevate my problem but at the same time I cannot afford to be completely off of it either. ACK! Talk about bad timing!
Have I mentioned how much I hate the snow?!?!?! Cause I do.
But I got this going for me: 8 days until Florida ♥
It can snow all it wants right now, as long as it stops by next week so I can get down to Orlando/Jacksonville!!!
How are my fellow east coasters dealing with the snow? What do you do when you are homebound to keep from going crazy??
