Snow. My. God.

Our porch, around 12 hours in:


Nelson, shoveling, hour 12 (around 24 inches):


Icicles handing from our eaves, the day after:


Snow, icicles on our porch roof:


Our wagon, snow half removed. There's another car in our drive way behind it:


A cute baby:


The only photo of me and the kids in the snow I deemed acceptable for the internet:



Oscar, what's he doing?:


Making a snowball!:


Coming after his dad:


All told, we got around 30 inches, with drifts as high as four feet. We're supposed to get 10-20 more inches this afternoon and tomorrow. Ridiculous.

Holy Moly! That is just plain crazy! I mean really, where do you even put THAT much snow? We're expecting 8-12 inches today and tonight. Seems like nothing compared to the snow you have!

Did you lose power? A friend of mine in VA lost power for 4 days. It was back on last night finally...

Want to come over? It's 55 and sunny here in Portland - green grass, camellias blooming... It's photos like yours that remind me why I now live in the Pacific NW! Hope you're stocked on cocoa and diapers... and wine.

I am somewhat jealous of the amount of snow you have. We love to ahve it snow here. Right now we have ice. Lots and lots of ice. Ice is depressing and slippery.

I'm not so jealous of the removal process though. Happy Tuesday.

Holy shiznit. That's ridonkulous even from MY perspective.

Ah, it's so nice to know you're in the same boat. We got about half of what you did, which was quite enough, thank you very much.

And yes, as I write this, it is snowing like mad - we are looking at between 6 and 12 inches ourselves.

Why, oh why, did I ever leave Texas??

Ridiculous indeed. I tried to go to the grocery store and didn't even make it into a parking space. Things are crazy here.

Becky said...

That is so crazy! My bro lives in downtown DC within walking distance of the Mall, and they have been having a great time playing in it. So strange to see DC that way!

The kids look like they're loving it!

Jenn said...

Wow! Looks like Canada. LOL. Very cute pictures, especially of you and your boys!

Mrsbear said...

What. The. Hell? The pictures are great though. Gives me a new appreciation for the peninsula. So much white. Wow.

Honey, I live in the mountains and I've not seen snow like that. It's God's way of punishing Massachusetts for their new Senator.

Jamie said...

I am green with jealousy right now. All of that beautiful snow. We got two freaking inches yesterday and now it's pretty much gone. Yep, my Colorado colors are showing.

So pretty! (The Floridian will shut up now.)

Kate said...

We have clearly done something to piss off Mother Nature. The prospect of another 2+ days in the house is not making me very happy.

Barbara said...

Blimey - it's going to be wet round your way when that starts to thaw.

Captain Dumbass said...

Wow. I'm not sure what to say to that except that as I look out my back window I see that it wasn't so wet I'd actually have to cut my lawn.

We are in the same boat. It's been damn near impossible to move all that snow enough to get off our hill.

And school has been canceled all week, which on one hand is nice because no work! but on the other hand it also means no spring break as those will be snow make-up days. Ugh.

Casey said...

Holy snow hell! Love the title. And the kids are adorable, as are you.

Frogs in my formula said...

THIRTY inches? I am speechless.

CT closed down today for six inches. I thought we had it bad...

Oh my goodness! How fun!!!!
