Blizzard Warning until Sunday

Well it was right on time lastnight - 11pm the snow started to fall. We had received warnings all week that we'd be getting 6 inches - then it changed to 12 inches - by last night they were saying 24 inches.

This was this morning at 7am. I had to shovel to get the puppy outside to potty. The two blind spots just happen to be flakes in front of the camera. pretty cool! Or maybe it's a snow ghost - who knows. By this time we'd probably only received 4 - 5 inches.

By 10am when my dad was out doing the driveways we had received at least 11 inches. I had already shoveled the sidewalk but it didn't matter. Wait 5 minutes and it's covered again. My dad was overly excited to use his Under Armour gloves....I got them for him not expecting it to be cold enough in normal events - he sometimes works in a cold room that is -30 degrees so I figured they could be used for that. But he was loving them today!

Haven out on the deck with Deez. This is probably the 10th time I've shoveled the deck so the dog can get outside and not get lost in the snow!

This was at 2pm today. I am tired of shoveling. I shoveled the stairs and made a path to my dad's around noon. I measured it at 13 inches - then by 2pm it started snowing 10 x harder. It's a really heavy snow too. Of course my dad threw a snowball at me while I was on the stairs knowing with my broken foot I could do nothing but take it.
I'm guessing I'll be seeing my dad around 4pm for our next shoveling adventure! :)
