SNOWMAGEDDON




So you're wondering if we are still here, huh? We are still here and are truly amazed at the amount of snow that fell from the sky in about 28 hours. On the low end we have around 25 inches. It's hard to tell since the snow drifted with all the high winds, but I think it was more like 30 inches. Any way you slice it, we had an enormous amount of snow. Thankfully, we were able to dig out yesterday and free our driveway and cars so that we can get out should we need to. Lucky for us we live 2 blocks from City Hall, so our street is pretty clear. We can get out, but there are very few things open and most roads are not passable.

These are the pictures from-Last Wednesday before the BIG storm we got 5 inches. So this is what it looked like beforeSnowmageddon hit.






Then these are during Snowmageddon. See our trash can on the curb? Yes there is snow up to the rim. I don't know why they didn't come empty it.




This what we woke up to Sunday morning.



We had to keep them inside while Allen cleared a spot for them to walk. Thank you Allen. It was up to Allen's shoulders in some places.



There was a lot of jumping off of the snow mountain. Allen and I made a bet that it would still be there on March 1. I think I'm going to lose that one!









Yes it is up to his shoulders!








Good news! Just when you are tired of seeing snow pictures, just get over it because....Another storm is coming tomorrow and Wednesday and we are due to get ANOTHER 5-10 inches! That is all I have to say about that!

  1. That is crazy. I could not handle it. I love all the pictures. These are great. At least you have something to play in outside. I am sick of the cold rain.
