It is officially the snowiest January ever with more than 36 inches of snow. That's not counting the 22 inches we got in December that never melted. Crazy! Mother Nature is off her rocker and I'd personally like to kick her back on it!
Schools are closed today, lucky Logan and the other million school students in this city. My office is open but I can't go in because I can get out of my block. There hasn't been a plow yet to come down my block and the snow is knee deep in the street. It's a heavy snow, too, full of lots of moisture. Great for snow balls but bad for shoveling.
We're all home today but the boys will be going out soon to shovel the driveway.
This is the view up the block. You can see the sunrise in the background.
Here's the view down the block.
Say hi to Kristina and Susan, my neighbors. Susan was uncovering her car while Kristina was attempting to get to work this morning. Notice the chest high pile of snow behind her. That is a collection of snow from our shoveled pathway in front of our house and it's been growing steadily higher since December.
We were up early as you can see, earlier than the sun. Jim was out there shoveling at 5 am.
Gizmo and Raven romping in the snow. They were having a good time.
Do you see that mound of snow in the middle of the picture? There is a car under all that snow. It's been buried there since the blizzard back in December. They didn't even bother to dig out yet. Guess they are waiting til spring.
My poor car.
