Blizzarding in the 2010

OK, so this last post? I take it back. It is not all the same.

Well, maybe the difference between a dusting and a few inches isn't a big deal, but as anyone who as any kind of interest in weather or the East coast knows right now: We are in the middle of a major blizzard. OK, we are hopefully at the tail end, but it still is getting to be a little bit old.

Thursday afternoon to Saturday night we got 32 inches of snow. Now, yesterday afternoon to this very moment we are getting another 20+ inches of snow. I'm not one for math, but that is a ridiculous amount of snow. The roads are impassible- right now the plows have just given up and are sitting around waiting for the snow to stop. Baltimore has banned all non-emergency traffic from the roads. Trees and power lines and roofs are collapsing. I have not been to work since Thursday and already know there is none tomorrow.


We are safe. We are warm. We have plenty of food. We have lots of firewood to burn. We have a neighbor with a snow blower. And we are together. So here are the pictures so far. Tomorrow they will look very much the same, but with another double digit worth of inches on the ground. Notice the back yard will you... right now that fence is completely buried in the snow.
