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.......
