might be snowed in_edited-1_wm

Well, not since November have we had more snow than it takes to fill one shovel.  This past Friday night and all day Saturday some of us had as much as 12 inches with three foot drifts … in our driveways.  If you look at the lower part of the image you’ll see a three foot wall left after the neighbors driveway was cleared.

I’ve got more Pictures.  It will be some time before all this melts.  Meanwhile, we could have more snow any time. NUTS!

A Snowy Morning


About a week ago we received two or three inches of snow.  I grabbed my camera and was about to shoot the image when the car suddenly came into the shot.  Go figure?

Fur Tree through a heavy Snow


I took this image about 15 Minutes ago – at 8:45AM.  The snow in the Peoria area is heavy and it’s been snowing like this since 6:30AM.  We were suppose to get one inch and we’ve had at least two already – probably get three or four.  I shoveled a walkway to the garage and you’d never know it to look at it.  The frosty look of the image is actually thick SNOW!

What happened to our Driveway?


I know we have a driveway – I’ve seen it!  It has to be there?  It’s under seven (7) inches of the wet stuff.  Don’t forget the blowing snow that came in after this was shot.  It snowed and blowed for another 2 or 3  hours.  Then, it moved East – Sorry.  As if they didn’t already have enough to worry about.  This storm reminded me of Newfoundland where I was stationed in the Air Force for 18 months in the early 60’s.  Those folks average 265 inches of snow per winter.  Snowing for days up there is a given.  The East is the real slave to these past two storms, I know.  Good luck to everyone getting out from under this. By the way, the fur tree across the street looks like it’s been covered in whipped cream.
