Blizzard of '10 Redux

This second snowfall in a week is really worse than the 28 inch episode we had on Saturday. Only about 15 inches at this time but this is very heavy wet snow that is backbreaking to shovel. There are now over 30,000 people without power due to downed trees and power lines. The 30-40 mph winds are likely to cause more damage. Looks like I won't work again tomorrow.

... and now that the power is back on you might want to monitor all that wonderful electric equipment you have around the house to ensure that none of it sustained any damage due to power fluctuations or surges. Many years ago in this part of Canada we had an ice storm and many people sustained damage to their electrical appliances.

Party Pooper! I just want to savor the moment. :-)

Ok, ok...I'll go check.

I was able to leave work early on Sunday (they let the plow drivers leave early) so I ran home grabbed my camera and went back out as the sun was just coming over the horizon. These are some of the shots I got.

LOL! Last time we got hit with 2 feet on the weekend, school was closed for 3 days. This time, same amount, school's are open. I had a hell of a time getting out of my driveway this morning even with 4 wheel drive. It just doesn't work on ice. It took me 25 minutes to drive my son to school (it's normally a 2 minute drive), bumper to bumper traffic barely moving the whole way. And we're a walking district (no buses) and you'd be surprised how many sidewalks aren't shoveled.


Nobody's clearing the sidewalks here, either. They are iced over in a slushy kind of way, but the thing that I don't like is the thin super-glue ice that forms on the windshield of my truck. Nothing to do but let the defroster melt it, it can't be scraped. The birds are still here, so it can't be that much of a storm. I expect it will be over by noon. My sympathy to all the people struggling w/mountains of snow, & the mountains of snow created by snowplows. When I lived in Wisconsin the sidewalks were tunnels, the snow on either side higher than my head. Ugh!

You have power at home?! You're lucky. :-/ We stayed one night in the house without power and gave in to warm food, and a hot shower...checked into a hotel. Tonight we're going to stay with friends that have power. Looking at the power companies website there are still 17000 homes without power in our area.


You're right; it could be much worse around here. I take back my whine ;-)

Gonna be 67 here today, pass some of that snow down this way, we would love some!

ACK! Don't even say that!!! We still haven't seen an official snow plow and I have plans for this weekend which involve heading north. If snow must fall, could someone please clean it up this time? By Saturday at the latest (and no, I don't want to hear about any possible storm Saturday in the Northeast ... I really don't.) Thank you ;-)

Update: my husband just came in and told me even the minivan can't make it up our icy hill and it's almost 11:00 am. This is not a good thing. On the plus side, I can probably stop cleaning the house because the cable guy won't be able to get here today.

Some of the drifts in my yard are about 4 feet! LOL! My dog is pooping under the deck.

Final total accumulation in our area...27 inches! The second highest one storm total since they began keeping records here. This snow eclipsed the previous 2nd highest total of 23.2" that we had just 5 weeks ago. WOW! How's that for big snowfalls in one season! It may not seem like a large amount of snow for some folks, but it's a heck of a lot of snow for us here in the Philadelphia area.
