10:29 – We’re snowed in, more or less. Oh, we could get out with the 4X4 if we had to, but only in a real emergency. When we got up this morning, it was 16F (-9C), and it’s since dropped to 15F. There was about 8″ (20 cm) of snow accumulation, and there’s been another inch or so since. It’s still snowing.

USPS is trying to run, but chances are they won’t make it out to us today. They haven’t even gotten their delivery from Greensboro this morning. We have a Priority Mail package awaiting pickup, but if it doesn’t get picked up until Monday that’s no big deal. There’s no point to the carriers risking their lives trying to deliver mail in these conditions.
