Murphy says if something can go wrong it will go wrong. I'd like to add that it will go wrong at the absolute wrong time. Measuring snow in our community depends on where you are located. We may get 8" of snow and the back of the park can get 12" and the front of the park can get 2". We received 4" one day and 5" the next day followed by 2-6 degree temperatures and wind with gusts up to 25 MPH, The wind redistributes the snow and when it gusts it is white out conditions as drifts form and grow. Maybe we should refer to it as socialism snow because the wind takes it from one person and redistributes it to another who may have just cleared their driveway.
Anyway - back to Murphy: Our association has two pieces of heavy road equipment and Murphy is in charge as both pieces of equipment have broken down at the same time. Parts are to be received today and they will be repaired but it couldn't come at a worse time - thanks Murphy. With the winds and snow being redistributed the roads are pretty much drifted in and going out or coming in is highly risky. It is brutal to be out in this wind and drifting snow and while the temperature is single digit the wind chill is negative numbers. Getting stuck in a drift could end up in frost bite or freezing to death.
Best option is wait until the roads are cleared once again (maybe tomorrow) and be careful then. So far this year in the middle of the park we have received 170" of snow and it is waist deep on the ground. We had a family stop in the road in front of our house recently to look at a lot for sale down the road and I went out to make sure they were alright and they had only walked about 100 yards down the road and were totally exhausted. They were young and in good shape and the wind had blown much of the snow off the road so they were only wading through about 1-1 1/2 feet of snow. You can get in trouble quickly in the mountains in the winter so if you are inclined - use extreme caution and go prepared.
