|We all looked forward to this storm. We had enough warning they we were well prepared.
Here's a shot of the girls out in the thick of it. At this point it had been snowing for about 29 hours and there was about
20 inches of snow.
Absolutely awesome picture taken by our neighbor, Nick W.
His girls are on the left, Kari and Kelly - next to them is Erika
and Kat is sitting in a red plastic sled at their feet.
Photos I took from the same vantage point throughout the storm.
As you can see we started with a few inches already out there.
|As the storm progressed, I got into the spirit of things.|
|Periodically, Doug and/or I went out to shovel.|
|After each of us had been out once or twice, we took this reading in our driveway.||Yep, over 20 inches!|
|Eventually, with help from Erika and the sun, we got it to look like this --------------->|
|I think the fact that Erika is currently in rehearsal for the play "Suessical Jr." somehow influenced the way the storm hit our pine trees!|
|We've often been sad that there are no good places to go sledding nearby (walking distance). Well, with this storm we just made our own hill! This is about 1/3 of the snow that got plowed in our cul-de-sac - and was deposited on our front lawn. At it's highest point it's about 6 feet tall! Seen here are Kari, our neighbor, and Erika, who's getting ready to slide down our manmade hill.|
|Kat gets ready to slide down the smaller slide
that I made for her.
She didn't like it much, and afterwards
said she'd rather help me shovel.
|Erika and her friends used their sleds to make forts for a snowball fight!|
|A shot of our house after the storm. Our driveway is actually clear, it's just hidden behind the snowplow mound to the right of our driveway. The mound to the left has the sledding hill from above (you can just see it at the edge of the picture).|
|Well, that's the Blizzard of early February, 2010. A few days later another snowfall was expected to add several more inches to the 26 or so this storm dumped on us. I love snow so I'm in hog heaven. If only I could get to more firewood - it's all buried in our backyard!|
