We got up to close to a foot of the fluffy white stuff.
The problems began when it took OVER AN HOUR to clean out JUST the driveway since our snowblower quit working. Mr. Bilby was not happy - to say the least.
SO I mentioned to Mr. Brian that our blower wasn't working and guess what he does - shows up with his snowblower!!! What a guy!! Thank you Mr. Brian! (Mr. Bilby is happy now.)

This drift was as tall as our car - they had to dig through to let cars through.
Outside Dad's work - This drift is the one you saw on a previous post outside Joe's window!!
Out front of our house - look at those drifts!!
Oh yes, our political commentary here - Joe wanted me to mention that Al Gore and his global warming theory is taking a hit right now - at least 10 inches of snow two weekends in a row (that's a record for us the weatherman said), the biggest blizzard since 1975, and below normal temps since January - Joe is smiling!!! :)

*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!!

Chloe and Mya posing by the Dragon - see how cooperative they were - really all they wanted to do was play - they really hit it off!! Two peas in a pod!!
By the way - we did leave tonight - headed home and the snow started again - as we saw cars going into the ditch before our eyes, we wisely decided to call it a night and plan to finish it up tomorrow morning!! It's ok though - we had a great time - and we were all ready to stop and sleep anyway - bad weather or no bad weather - some things are just worth doing!!!
