Winter Storm Nemo - 2013

So... we got back-slapped with Winter Storm Nemo.

When I say "back-slapped" I suppose I could have said whipped, inundated, slammed, smacked or any other forceful descriptor.

Three feet.  We got 3' of snow in less than 24 hours.

The roads are closed.  Even if we could get our cars out, there is a total driving ban on all streets in the entire state.  The best thing I can say about this is that we didn't lose power.

Also, the shear beauty of the untouched clean, white, snow that blanketed everything was enough to put a content smile in anyone's soul.

 At least until they have to start shoveling.

Here are some photos from the early morning, then a couple once the sun came out so we could shovel a bit more:

Then, I started to shovel out:
And the kids were able to play in the tight, shovel width path,
and in the street for the first time.  There was nowhere to go, I wasn't worried...for them.

Perhaps I wasn't as prepared as I should have been on the glove/mitten front.  Perhaps next year I'll learn how to knit.

Don't you wish you were here?
