What to muse about today?

Too much snow

Too much snow

Yeah, there’s just too much snow now.  We got another 18.5 inches since last night.  It did look lovely at 5:30am, what I could see out the window over the snowline.  I think our second floor windows are half buried with the snow.  We need to shovel the roof.

Anyway, I cut the picture off, so you can’t see the swing buried in the snow.  There’s just too much of it.

Way too much snow

Oh, you can see it in this one.  Teagan can’t even play in it, not really.  There’s just too much.  She can’t walk.  You barely see the walk. <sigh>

So, we officially have had the snowiest month on record.  Since they started keeping records. On top of the largest snowfall in 24 hours, snowiest January on record.  We’re not done yet.  I’m not sure if I want to break any more records.  Other than warmest February…

Stu ended up shoveling about half of the driveway before the plow could come and plow us out.  They showed up at 4pm.  (They also didn’t charge this time).  One hour after the town plowed our street.  It seems that the town plow – a big huge monster truck – got stuck just around the corner from our house.  For three hours.

Because I can’t think what more to say, today…  I’ll leave you with a great list of movies that deal with snow…  Gotta love Mamapop.com for compiling this.

I think I need to watch Ravenous.

PS.  The electric is working properly, as is the kitchen sink.  The dishwasher, however, has decided it doesn’t want to work any more.  <sigh>

    OMG-it’s like you live in the arctic! Is the snow really up to the 2nd floor? This is going to be a nightmare when it melts!!

      Well, we have the narrow roof on the first story, and that snow is half-way up the windows. The tall, second story roof seems to be pretty good, it has a better, steeper, pitch than the first one.

      We may be going out today with the ladder and scraping off some of the snow and ice from the lower roof. Need to be sure to get some of the ice out now before the rain we’re supposed to get later this week.

      It never ends this season it seems.

    Be careful. Have you guys been working from home or have places shut down?

    • lisasff says:

      We’ve been lucky enough to work from home, but there are places that did shut down. Schools here were closed again. The roads are bad, barely one lane wide, with people dumping their driveway snow back into the roadway. Stu broke a shovel this morning trying to clear the walkway… so, it’s only out the garage for now! :)
