A Record Breaking Snowstorm

I changed my mind from my last post. This turned out to be such a massive storm that I decided to share a few of the pictures I took around 4:00 pm.

Blizzard type conditions existed for most of the afternoon. Blowing and drifting created huge drifts.


It felt much better inside, looking out.





Looking out of the back door. It was difficult to remember when my mother and I sat at this table with our cups of coffee, in warmer weather.





When the snow is so deep and the snow blower so powerful, this may happen to your delivered newspaper that was hidden in the snow.





First time he cleared the driveway with this machine was 9:30 am. The second time was 4:00 pm. Notice the amount of snow that had accumulated between the two times. The snow, cold and high winds made this a snowstorm we won't soon forget. If you want to see a fun snow blog, you can check out my daughter's blog by clicking HERE. She was the busy one.

Unbelievable. .all we hear on the news here is how we wanted to have "green" games but not "green" games. It is so warm and balmy here and a huge rain storm is coming in . .just in time for the opening ceremonies . . which really makes me sad.
I do think your picutres are beautiful and I can sympathize with your husband. . .since that was what we did last winter.

It is just amazing. I am glad you posted your snow pic's. I want to know how things are going for you.
Brrrrrr...hope you have some good books to read.

My goodness, that is an unbelievable amount of snow to receive at one time. It is a big job to keep it cleared and I can imagine your husband is a bit exhausted.
It does look pretty in your pictures, especially the one with the candle light in the window. So cozy. I hope you can stay warm, cozy and safe until it is all over.

I am so grateful that you and others have not been without power. I can't imagine enduring such a winter without heat or lights.

Stay warm!

Eye popping picture of the door blocked by snow! Glad you left your lights up so the lights could glow through the snow so beautifully.

Goodness I thought we had occasional blizzards here in Colorado Springs. You have us beat. I hope you are able to get out. It's definitely beautiful, but I know it's hard to be snowed in.

Sending sunshine from Colorado today!

We got a foot of heavy wet snow. After shoveling x 3 I think I've made up my mind t invest in a snow blower for next year!
