Next time, A Little LESS White Christmas, Please!

Apparently, someone was dreaming just a teensy bit too strongly about a white Christmas around here. We got 25.1 inches, and this is the stuff Brian drove home through on Christmas eve, saying things like the drive was "Not bad." He did acknowledge there were a number of cars in the ditch.

This next one is through a window screen, and there really are two cars under all this!



One dug out, one more car to unbury:

The mailbox is not quite buried, but close:

After two of us using brooms to start the snow removal on this car:



Unfortunately, a lot of this stuff will still be here come April. It's not like it usually warms up above freezing before then, so what we get now, we might as well "adopt" and name because it's going to be with us a long, long, time.



Brian was suppose to leave on Saturday at noon, by bus, leaving his car here. But the bus service was cancelled. He was able to get a seat on Amtrak at midnight. At least we got to see him a little longer!

This is so, so sad! I don't like snow very much and the thought of several months of this white stuff is so discouraging. Will you be seeing Brian again when he gets his car back? If so, then at least it's a bit of an upside . . .

Wow, I heard about the snow, but the pictures say it so much better! Glad your son got home OK!

Ok Ok, I'll remember this when we get just a couple inches.

The older I get, the more I like a big snow to translate to 'dusting'. Sorry one of your babies had to leave so soon.

wow! I love snow, but I don't live in it, LOL!!

Oh my goodness...pictures certainly speak volumes. You got dumped on! Wow.

I hope you get an unexpected thaw and it does melt away...at least a little bit! You certainly deserve it!

That's a lotta snow!! Here it rained the last couple of days... so almost no more snow!! Glad you are getting to spend more time with Brian!

You got more than we did! Glad Brian made it safe and sound. Our snow is already gone but there's more on the way today.

it's crazy how much snow we got. i have to admit, though, i find it quite beautiful.

Do they have the snow plows there, like in Chicago, that wait until you clear off your driveway and then charge down the street, put it all back into the driveway???
