If Pics disappear... here is a link to a LOT more pics including those below.

I'm like seriously not happy. Wow. 22 inches of snow....and a few pics that I took (I'll put on photobucket or something).

But to top it all off. It's still snowing. And no, I don't live in an area that normally sees a lot of snow. But it's windy to boot, so we're getting some decent snow drifting on top of the massive amount of snow.

It's gonna take 3 hours of shoveling to get the 15 feet to my car, then more to dig out the car itself haha.

The minivan in the pic above is our only car. It's not the best for traveling in the snow. But I will go out once the roads are drivable and take a few of the lovely countryside about 15 minutes away. The depressing thing is, it is still snowing here. It's like enough already! Let me shovel! haha.

Is your car a Chrysler or a Plymouth? We have the Chrysler Grand Voyager, I think you call it a Town and Country. Ours has a 2.5 Italian diesel. Guess yours is a petrol?

It's a Ford Windstar. I hate the thing, but at least it's paid for, finally. Probably going to trade it in on a Chevy Tahoe or something with 4WD.

Geeeeeez. Call it whining, call it complaining.

But... this is a bit much now.

Today's weather.


Today: Becoming cloudy with snow arriving late in the afternoon. High near 32.

Tonight: Snow, becoming heavy at times. Low near 26.

Tomorrow: Snow, heavy at times. Becoming windy. Snow accumulations around 8" - 18". High near 30

Taken from here: http://www.wgal.com/weather-light/index.html

That's one of our local news stations.

Dragonracer, yes, I don't mind a bit of snow. But when it falls 2 feet in one go, that's a bit too much for me (I've had 2 back surgeries, so the snow removal part is very painful).

Now...who's ready to laugh. They've changed the total amounts for today.

Last night into this morning - 13 inches have fallen. 11 more inches expected today.

That makes over 4 feet of snow falling since Friday afternoon (about 5 days worth of snow).

For the conversion for you guys... that's 1.27 meters of snow. It's too much for me! lol.

Some new pic's.....

This is from a section I removed over to the fence aimed up my back yard. You can see the differences from being so close to another house.



And the section I removed at the fence so you can get a good idea of the amount of snow that has fallen on us.
