Lots of snow to wake up to this morning! It is a very wet and heavy snow however. Some of us have had to deal with some minor damages across the area do to this heavy snow. JIWB recorded a good 5.0" inches of snow in the Lafayette, area. And I also got a first hand look at what this heavy snow could do! Take a look.
This is a huge tree branch that snapped at the base and fell onto my grandmas ford explorer last night around 10:30pm EST. My fiancee and I drove over there o the slick icy roads at around 25 mph to help get this thing off the truck. The base of it weighted near a hundred pounds.
The good news however is that when it snapped it caught most of itself on the base of the tree. So there was really no damage to the truck! Thank God!
Even outside my window the snow snapped yet another good sized tree limb. Take a look.
Beautiful but dangerous! In spite of snapping tree limbs we still managed to have fun with the snow. My fiancee and I went out around 10:pm last night and had a random snowball fight lol. I climbed up a tree and shook snow on her hahaha. Even little Joey our little two year old chihuahua enjoyed the snow :)
Roads are still a mess at this time however we will be seeing warmer temperatures start to move into the area over the next few days. We will see a high today reach 38* degrees with a low around 24* tonight. So whatever starts to melt could very well freeze back up during the overnight. we will reach a high tomorrow of 39* degrees as we continue to climb!
Believe it or not I'm looking for highs near 60* degrees by this weekend! A high around 56* degrees on Saturday and a high of 58* degrees by Sunday. This snow won't last so if you're like me, GET OUT AND ENJOY IT NOW! lol. Here is a final look at your snowfall totals below. Have a great day. And stay safe!!
