The roads closed behind us fifteen minutes after we left. We got to our destination without mishap, listening to Christmas music and watching the snow swirling around the car--occasionally we could see the road. We stopped at a restaurant for lunch, and while we were eating, we were informed that the city just went on blizzard alert and all the stores were closed. So much for shopping.
I called my sister, who lives here, and we drove to her house (not easily--there was a reason for the blizzard alert), and are still here. There's a four-foot drift behind my car and no sign of a road anywhere. We may be here till June. Hope we don't run out of food...it won't bother me, but everyone else will be highly uncomfortable if we do.
