I write to you from my cozy warm house in the midst of nearly three feet of snow. Right now, I am housebound, as our street is snowed out.
Kind of looks like an old country road, doesn't it? I assure you - there is an actual asphalt road under all that snow!
To give you an example of just how high this snow was...here's my car! Kind of amazing to look at. This was right after the task of shoveling all this snow began.
And here is what it looked like before we got started. There are actually two cars in this photo. Can you spot them?
About five hours after I got started, I managed to clear the path from the back door to the driveway. Looks almost like a tunnel!
This snow pile is at the foot of the drive...the work of my hubby. Today we're getting some icy rain. Too bad I don't have a sled!
We've enjoyed a lot of fires in the fireplace, and I've been busy baking up a storm! Pumpkin muffins, chocolate chip and walnut cookies. I'm glad I had enough food in the house - although we are running seriously low on coffee creamer! We're trying to do fun things to bide the time...watching movies, reading, guessing how long it will take before the plows come along...
It was a historic storm - I don't ever recall a snow storm like this. The biggest difference between this storm and the freak snow storm in October from nearly two years ago is that although we didn't lose power this time, we are instead unable to leave our home.
Our Internet service is somewhat spotty right now, but I am glad I was able to write this post to share our snow story with you!
Til next time,
PS We got our road plowed yesterday! And our Internet is back up and running properly, too. Busy catching up!
