Still photos would be okay, too. I never get to see that kind of weather!

Jan, You think you're missing something? I wish I could send pics. I imagine there will be plenty on TV. Maybe I can tell you with words.

Schools are closed - roads are closed or nicely put, "impassable".

In front of my home my van sits in the drive with snow up the sides, past the wheels, with a frosted top of more than a foot of the white stuff!

The street wasn't plowed till today and even though we aren't allowed to throw snow in the street when we shovel, they come by and throw 3 ft. or so of it at the end of our drives. There is no justice - or mercy for shovelers.

In back, my patio set sits with a souffle like top of more than a foot of snow and the chairs are buried above their seats. A great study in black and white.

My neighbor's roof has a covering just like a lemon meringue pie with swirls from the 50-60mph winds we've had all night.

There's also a big cut out like somebody snitched a piece of the pie, where the roof extension juts out, making it look like a Swiss chalet. My roof, in front, must be the same. I'll push my way out in 3 - 4' of snow to see it - later.

The street wasn't plowed till today. Doesn't matter. Nobody can get out of their drives. Now the hum of snow blowers begins.

My thoughts today:

Everything with glistening crowns,
The chill, unbearable,
The beauty, unimaginable,
So why such a pain in the ice? :<)
Jean in ILL.

It sounds beautiful even though it's a lot of work. I actually did go to Ottawa, Canada one February to experience a "real" winter. It was awesome! Nice to visit though and not have to deal with the hassles.

OK...here's the best photo I could get in the 2.5 seconds I was willing to have the door open in my attempt. Sorry for the bad framing but being in a wheelchair makes holding the door open and operating the camera a little difficult. You can tell how much we got by how high up the snow is on the For Sale sign in the yard across the street.

Added insult...the temp is currently 2 degrees F with a wind chill of -23. By morning...well, I just don't even want to think about it. Everything is closed...schools, government offices, churches. And I'm trapped in the house with an 18 y.o. who is BOOOORRRRREEEEDDDD and she's read everything on the internet.

This one's for Jan

Pile of snow at the end of our driveway after yesterday's storm. Pile is almost as high as neighbor's roof! More snow coming on Saturday...

Our front lawn:



Hubby is out there now with the snowblower, I must go and shovel the front steps.

Thanks Judy, that's beautiful! If you weren't careful you'd literally be snowed in..as in you couldn't get out the door!

Woodi... Your house and the area you live in are beautiful! Are those little houses near the deer for feeding them?
