Blizzard '09

Photo by SnaggleTooth Dec 20 2009 .
Here's the path to the road I had to shovel today. My t-square says 19 inches. It was even higher almost to the top of Little Trucks tailgate, once I got the plow droppings removed from the road.

Yes, I had to work. Only got stuck on the ice under the snow in my driveway about 20 times. Went thru an entire bucket of sand just to get on the road, of which one lane was plowed. Tho I parked at the end of the drive way at the road, they didn't plow that side close enough.

Happy winter!

Wow! That's a lot of snow! I'm glad you had some help digging out. I have to say though the snow can be a pain in the butt, the photos are beautiful. I love the way it swirls around so the vehicles so beautifully.

And did you plant the T-square before the storm because I love how pristine it is around it!

Gotta love how certain communities do such a fantastic job of plowing the roads.

Glad you were able to make it to work in one piece.

Talon, I like getting the pristine, untouched by shovel pic stuff. thanks. Wish my neighbors wouldn't trample thru the entire yard. I got out before them in the front (they didn't wanna shovel it).
the T-square was stuck in after storm, pre-shovel, as far ahead as I could reach over once I shoveled down the steps.

G, I can't help but wonder why not one more pass down Main roads instead of leavin three inches of slippery stuff to slide on- can't pass anyone here- must back-up! Me too, thanks!

Paige, the snowcone is enormous, but all vanilla! Most is still there- none has melted! N it's crusty. Just remember not to eat the yellow part...

BBM, I'm sure you had enough to do at your driveway... At least you didn't break the ancient shovel-

JanF, thanks, wish I had more walk n pic time n less shovel it time! Few more work days to go before I'll try that.

You know it snowed here in the UK while we were in the US. Well in fact we still have snow on the ground now, and the country ground to a hault. Or is that holt? Anyway, I was so impressed with the way you Americans clear up the snow and carry on with life. We have no snow ploughs, and main roads can be closed for days. It's very pathetic.

Wow, we got what is for us some major snow, and shut down our power for four days, and we even lost water. And that was just eight inches. I think you got our snowstorm, but it grew in the interim -- 19 inches! Holy MOLY!

Snow is so beautiful, but shoveling it can make a person too pooped to pop.

Stay warm and snug!

LLcoolJ, Wow! Alot of Snow there is unusual- No plows?! In the old days, they used horse-drawn rollers to pack down the stuff.
Lucky you weren't stuck at the NY Airport all week- some folks are still waiting for the re-booked ride for the holiday I saw on the news.
I choose to live in New England, because I actually like snow- but hate driving in it- Makes life interesting.

ThommaLyn, You lost power and water? What a disaster! We get so spoiled. hope you found a way or two to enjoy the loss of non-battery electronics. I've had to work n keep shoveling the past three days- I am so pooped alright!
