I know I keep banging on about the weather, the snow and the cold. It's March 26th and many of you are getting out your patio furniture and summer clothes in anticipation of spring.
We awoke all night to snow hitting the windows and high winds. Unbelievable!! When I got up and looked outside, it's a blizzard...again. Here's the National Weather Service Advisory:

I've got to do 2, 2 hour runs this weekend and it looks like they're both going to be on the treadmill. Even though the forecast says blowing snow will all be over at noon, it could still be pretty ugly out there from noon on. I'd hate to get an hour away from the house and have whiteout conditions kick up again, I'd have to hitchhike home!!
I'd post a picture but it would look like the ones below where there's blowing snow. Boring.
