They were predicting a small snow storm, like 2-4 inches, but when I got up around 6am, this is what I was greeted with:
Honestly, I thought about trying to brave it, but pretty soon all of the schools were cancelled, and there were reports of people sliding off the roads right and left. It was less about the total amount of snow - which ended being about 8-10 inches at my house - and more about the high winds, low visibility, and the fact that it was coming down at a rate of about 2 inches an hour right as the morning commute was beginning, so the streets were horrible.
At that point I decided that discretion was the better part of valor, and I called the vet and left a message cancelling Jasper's appointment.
I mean, getting stuck or in an accident would be one thing, but doing so with a kitty in tow would be a whole other. It just seemed like it would be adding way too much to an already stressful situation, and I couldn't see risking life and limb for the sake of a dental appointment.
So Jasper got a reprieve, and instead of going to the vet we all had a snow day.

|Smoky looking at the snow outside the basement window|
|Me shoveling... and shoveling...|
|Snow hanging over the eaves|
|The alley where my garage is... after numerous trucks had gone down it|
But it is what it is, so I guess we'll just nestle down and enjoy the holiday scenery for a while.
|My neighbors went all out this year!|
There will be plenty of time to worry about the vet in January!
So how about you? Have you had any snow days yet this season?
