I agree with Chip. The thrill of shoveling the driveways is long gone. We got just got a dusting here in central Kentucky.

Here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, we were hit with almost 30”. I have shoveled my deck twice, just so the dog could go out. I can’t even get out of my front or side doors.

I shoveled about 18” of snow in the driveway. The car is not out yet. The poser was out from 3:00AM to 8:30AM on Sat morning and then from 10:30AM to 4:30PM. I was cooking on the BBQ. Some bread, cinimmon rolls and warming up a smokked chicken. I was carrying everything into the house when the power came on SO we contuinued the warming process in the house. I didn’t get it done in the BBQ. The cast Iron Dutch ovens did’t get as warm as was needed.

It looks like a lost about 6-7 Holly trees layed over and also broken off. The Holly leaves collected lots of heavy snow and they came down.

Heh, when I was a wee lad of 3 (1955) we moved from Minnesota…it snowed a cumulative 38 feet that year. When the stuff thawed, my dad said, “We’re going to California!”. Prolly saw that infamous Rose Parade.

My brother lives in Minnesota. The first time I was up there, I looked at the corner of his yard and asked, what is that stake in the ground? He said it has marks on it, so everybody can tell how many feet of snow there is. The only thing I could think is glad I don’t live here during the winter..

I am in New Jersey and we got hammered, excuse the pun, I have a 4 Runner and the snow is up to the wheel well. I cannot open either doors of my house the glass door shows it’s about 4 ft. up against the house the front is a little less. Sorry i do not have pics of this years snow storm, you really could not go out in this one since the winds were so strong. The snow was so high by morning i could not get out.
It started a little after midnight and went to about 5-6:00 the next day. At the rate of 3” per hour, according the the weather channel, you can imagine how much we got.
I have to start to dig out today, I am in no hurry, :)
