Snowpocalypse Continues....

....and continues...as we await the next storm...due in tomorrow with the "potential for greater than 5 inches"...as we are only on the edge of the storm...thankfully. I heard on tv that this winter may be the all time record for snow in this area. No kidding.

I thought perhaps you'd like to see the nice icy patch that I slipped on...


Ha. That's the end of my driveway....that's the unplowed road straight ahead....which as of today has had a cursory plowing...

Below you can see my shovel...I was making some progress on the driveway...


...when, what should I find (after putting the camera away) but that my wonderful most magnificent neighbors were out there finishing off my driveway! Now, don't you wish you had such neighbors! That's not all...the snow plow barricade? I went out to find it had disappeared also...and I don't even know who to thank. I am very blessed to have such folks around me.

....back to our snow scenes...



Some nice icicles...which we'll get a closer look at a bit later..


Snowy trees...


Guess we won't be going down these stairs...


Glad this isn't your house; unfortunately, it's my next door neighbors' (they're fine; I called and checked on them)...


My daughter and I were working on the truck...we thought DH should see (he's gone....missing all this fun)...


Something I don't usually do, but here's my beautiful daughter working on her dad's truck...


After much work on her part, she's clearing out the massive load of snow in the back...


A little reward for you, having gotten this far...some fun pictures...


(Be afraid...be very afraid....wahahahaha)

So you can see the size of this thing...


Kobe likes icicles, too...


....sweet....actually, Kobe unwilling to part with the icicle...


.....think about us tomorrow.....you take care, too...


Update: We've been upgraded to 6-12 inches. Lucky us.

Update 2: Hmmm, now expecting 7-14 inches. I'm not liking the direction this is heading...

I'm enjoying sharing this 'freak' series of snowstorms with you and other VA bloggers! Luckily my husband was home, but he's going out of town tomorrow...and with an injured knee I may not be doing much shoveling. Luckily, I have a 13 yr old son. (Daughter is away at college...). Have fun tomorrow and Wed!!!

This snow is unbelievable! My kids have been out of school 7 days in a row so far, including today.
I am hoping that we'll have lots of crocus and snowdrops when this finally melts. It will melt, right?

"Dude where's my car?" LOL! You know you parked it somewhere. You all got more than we did here in Ohio or Canada. What is wrong with that picture.

I live in WV, we had pretty much about the same snow. My poodle goes out in it and he's so light he can walk on top of it. He comes to spots where the snow is weak and he falls through and disappears, really funny

Your daughter doesn't look like she's dressed warmly enough for all that snow! She's making me cold just looking at her - lol!

Wow, you received a lot of snow. It was fun to see your daughter and Kobe. Still don't have a clue what you look like though!! At least the snow won't last too long there. Happy weekend!
