Snowpocalypse 2010

Here are some images from Snowpocalypse 2010 for those of you who live outside of the Mid-Atlantic region:

Sat., February 6 (10am)
View of our driveway and the street in our cul-de-sac from our garage.  About 23 inches of snow fell between midnight and 10am.  If you count the 6 inches of snow that fell between 3pm and midnight we're looking at totals of 29 inches so far.

Sat., February 6 (11:15am)
Mike and I were able to clear about half our driveway with two shovels and our little snow blower.  Mike waded out to the street and said it's deeper towards the end of the driveway.  About 2 to 3 inches of snow has fallen since we came back inside.

Sat., February 6 (2pm)
A view of the deck and our back yard.  Our barbecue and the table and chairs are somewhere under all that snow.  At the rate we're going we probably won't see grass again until early March.

Sat., February 6 (3:45pm)
We cleared the length of the driveway.  The snow has pretty much stopped so there won't be any additional accumulation from this storm.  We can't do much more until the plow comes through.  Goodness knows when that will be.

Sat., February 6 (4pm)
Calvin is not a big fan of snow. He spent a good portion of the afternoon sleeping.

Carmen, on the other hand, was a little too interested in the weather event. We actually had to lock her in the house when we went out to shovel because she managed to open the door and get into the garage the first time Mike headed out to work on the driveway.

Sat., February 6 (4:15pm)
Mike worked his way round to the back of the house to check the vents and make sure they weren't blocked.  The snow is thigh high in some places so he literally had to row his way through the snow with a small shovel.
