Well, we're just hanging around the house today.

That's the end of the driveway near the street. I'm 5'3", just for scale.

It's a lot deeper there due to the plowing, but it's got to go anyway. Thankfully my husband was able to use the snow blower on the majority of the driveway.

That's the birdbath a few hours ago. My husband thinks it about 28"-29" right now. BTW, it's still snowing. All those crazy weather maps showed us right in the middle of the bulls eye all week, and they were right.

To the left: looking out the front door yesterday morning at 10:30, when it started to snow.

Below: the view this morning at about 10:00. Bear in mind that I shoveled that walk last night at 9:30 when the snow was about 5" deep.

Here's one of my enthusiastic helpers.

I'm very thankful for many things today including electricity, good snow boots, and a snow blower.

After I have some butternut squash soup, chocolate babka, and make some gumbo, I guess all that's left to do is try snow dyeing.

Yah, we're in the same boat - but with no snow blower.

I was thinking earlier what a shame it was to have all of this snow and no dye in the house - it's a slippery slope I've not started down yet.

Wow! I'm so glad that we didn't get it here in CT. Not a flake, how lucky! We had a storm a couple of years ago that dumped 27" so I know what it's like.

Have fun snow dyeing and stay warm and dry.

Wow! That is a lot of snow!

We moved from Maryland in 2007 - came south and west to Tennessee to escape winters like this - but we have had 2 storms here this winter - but nothing like what you have!!

Wow - that's a lot of snow! I keep wishing that we'll get hit like that.
