MORE BLIZZARD

Whew - it's still not done!! Here are my few tidbits to share - I always wanted to be a meteorologist!!!
*I called for pizza last night - BOTH our pizza places were CLOSED!
*No mail since yesterday and probably won't have any until MONDAY!
*Again, Joe's work is telling everyone to go home - their plows are giving up for the time being - as are the city's - they just can't keep up.
*Here's Joe's window at work - it's at least a 7 ft. drift

*Joe snowblowed this morning and an hour later we could not see our driveway.
*The snowblower is now totally ineffective as it can't throw the snow high enough to get over the drifts on either side of the driveway.
*My personal favorite - the drifts are taller than Joe!!!!!







*This picture was taken by Ladyl (she posts here sometimes) - she lives outside of town and has been stuck there now for a couple of days. Love that drift - and the snow blowing off of it - see what we're dealing with out here?!?! Yep, and I still love it!!! :)

(She didn't make the "!' on her window either - that's mother nature expressing herself!!)
*Here's a picture we got from a guy Joe works with - he's at least 6 foot tall - check out those drifts in his driveway - he didn't make it to work today!!

Yep it is nasty out there. Many of my co-workers have been stranded in town since Wendsday night and others can not make it in at all.
Now if I had a job where I did not have to go to work this would be more fun.

Joel said...

WOW..that looks like fun!! We've been getting the wind here, but not so much snow. Stay warm up there!

Beckyb said...

Hey Joel- would you like us to send you some?!?!?! :)

Steffie B. said...

It is nasty here today too. The only difference is......I DON'T LIKE IT! lol Summer where are you?!?!?!?!?

Joel said...

Becky, the sad truth if it is--I think you are sending us some of your snow! The weatherman joked about the snow in the Northwest last night and said that it was literally being blown down to us. (Via the 40-50 mph winds!) We would have loved to share the system that came thru before this one--we lost power for about a day and a half!!!

We got some snow today too, but nothing crazy like you guys...

We got a huge dump today here in Montreal! Poor hubby is out kicking and swearing at the snow-blower!!

Julie :o)

Emmie said...

WOW, that sure is a lot of snow! Enjoy it and stay warm!! We got a ton of more snow today as well and are continuing to get more. Unfortunetly I am not as big of a winter fan as you though!

Yeah, we're getting slammed here too with snow and wickedly fast winds. Hang in there my friend!

Are you doing your happy dance? Go get you a cup of coffee and stay warm.

Carey said...

I love the pic with the "!" on it! This is some weather, isn't it?

Journey to Mia said...

Holy cow!!!!!!!

Carrie said...

Okay, you have it so much worse than we do! Good thing you like it as much as you do. The picture out Joe's window says it all. Are they going to start bringing in dump trucks to haul out the snow?

redmaryjanes said...

You are one of my very favorite people to visit out here in blogland! I was thinking about you yesterday because I'm going to post some hockey photos this weekend! Stay warm and safe!

OH MY GOD that is a lot of snow. I am not a fan...(even tho I live in New England..) I love the sun...and warm.

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
