Look at the snow here right now

Mother nature has a sense of humor, I think. At least today. This is what it looks like right now outside. And the snow just continues to fall at a rapid rate. This is the kind of weather I have been dealing with sporadically since last month. Heavy snowfall, closed roads and no where to go, but home. 

A lot of places are closed, so I cannot go grocery shopping nor order food. Luckily I have some food here I can cook, but I feel like I am in a dilemma considering this is also effecting the power and the phone towers. I have three internet connections (two WIFI and one mobile network) so if they go, I am basically here alone with my pets until they decide to plow the roads and what not. 

Needless to say, as much as it is nice to stay home, I don't like being trapped indoors. It makes me depressed and I feel as if I am developing a minor case of seasonal affect disorder, which is giving me major anxiety. Today is Sunday, January 8, 2017 and I just received a company call that work has been canceled as the building I work in is completely shut down due to the storm. Roads are shut down. Airports have been shut down. 

When I lived in Montana, it would get to below -20 degrees. It was very cold, but the snow didn't pile up. This is heavy snow. The kind that can be destructive to a roof top of a house. The kind that can actually cause a minor avalanche. This is a real snowstorm and reminds me of someone experimenting with the weather, although it is possible mother nature does have a sense of humor. But then again that could just be me thinking this way to make light out of a sad and possibly dark situation. 

I guess the only thing I can do is stay home, take advantage of the day (or days) off from work and just veg out here. I just don't understand why the weather is acting this way nor how long it will last, but I am hoping that it stops soon as I don't know how much more of this I can take. 

I hope the weather is good where you are.
