Say it ain't so!!

The weather we've been having here is beyond unbelievable.  I've lived in Maryland my entire life, and I do not remember any winter as snowy as this one.  Our snow storm on Friday afternoon into Saturday afternoon dumped over 28" of snow here.  Of course, the county we live in has not seen fit to plow us out yet, so we are stuck in our cul-de-sac.  And snow is predicted for tomorrow -- originally 5-8", which would've been bad enough, but now has been upped to 10-20"!!!  Where will we put it when we shovel out this time??  The piles already look like small mountains!!

But the upsides -- it truly was a lovely snow; Nelson got home from his business trip in Georgia just a few hours before the storm began; we had plenty of food in the house; and we NEVER lost power (unlike 250,000 other homes in the MD/VA/DC area)!!  So, I guess we have a lot to be thankful for!!

During the early morning -- we still got MANY inches of snow after this point.

A tree in our back yard:

The weight of the snow coming off the garage roof was pulling our gutters off:

Somewhere under all that snow is my poor little car!!

The view into the woods behind our neighbor's house:

The view down the sidewalk after digging ourselves out:

Snow clumped in the tree branches:

And one shot of the dogs on the deck.  We dug out a small area to show the depth and then posed the dogs there.  Cody (the one in the back of the photo) is exactly 100 pounds, so he's not a small boy!! 

More snow tomorrow to report on........ sigh.......
