Karren and Mike and I wanted to go to a cat show in Novi today. We agreed to make the decision this morning because there was a snow storm coming and didn't want to not go and then have the snow turn out to be a bust. So we checked in this morning and as there was just a couple of inches of snow and the roads and sidewalks were just wet decided to go after being suitably fortified with Bigby coffee.

The roads were not bad until we got a ways out of town. And then we started seeing cars in the ditch. One car, two car, five car, red car. Visibility was getting decreasingly worse so at Fowlerville I put a halt to the proceedings and turned around for home. I knew it was getting slippery out there because the traction control started telling me it was working. A bunch of us were in the right lane going a a speed appropriate for the weather but when I saw the 18 wheeler coming up way too fast in my rear view mirror I decided it was best to get off the highway. Took the Williamston exit and came home by way of Grand River Ave. The worst of the storm was tracking south of the early morning predictions.

We didn't wanted to just go home so stopped at Flap Jack Shack for brunch and then came home.

Now some hours later and it is still snowing. It has now piled up on the sidewalks and road. Karren just shoveled me a path to the car if I needed to escape. The rest will be left to the snow removal guy tomorrow.

What it looks like now.
