In short, we got about six inches of snow, then a week later we get some kind of whacked out winter storm courtesy of Canada, who still hasn't forgiven the United States for acid rain, global warming and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). This one was taken just at the end of the second big snow.

Then we get this crap from Lucas County Sheriff John Tharp.
Lucas County Placed Back Under Level 3 Snow Emergency
Lucas County has returned to a Level 3 snow emergency amid growing concerns regarding plunging temperatures and stranded vehicles, says the Lucas County Sheriff's office. A Level 3 emergency cites that all roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel.
Roads have been plowed and are passable. I know for a fact that people living out West deal with low temperatures all the time and don't resort to banning all travel. Tharp is doing this for the same reason a dog licks his nuts - because he can. After all, what good is having the authority to deny something to the Great Unwashed unless you actually exercise your authority every once in a while.
I'm planning to wait until noon before going over to Main Lady's house to feed her cats and check on the welfare of the home, Level 3 or not.
