Blizzard of 2010 - Enough Already!

Enough already!
The meterologists started on Tuesday predicting that the storm of the century would be here by Friday noon. Everyone in Bel Air, in a mass hysteria, hit the grocery stores to stock up. I on the other hand chose to wait until Thursday after school to go to the grocery store. Yea, bad choice. After I fought the hundreds of people in Giant and spent nearly 20 minutes waiting to check out, I hit Redbox where I had reserved my movies for the next few days.

Just like the meterologists said, the snow started Friday afternoon - wet at first and not sticking but very quickly changing to a heavy, wet snow that stuck. Snowed all Friday - and all Saturday(today) stopping around 4:00pm or so.

The final official measurement at BWI airport was 23.60" of snow!! I think we had more than that here but oh well!

It has been a very long time since I have seen this much snow - and never for Michael and Abraham. We had to call one of Michael's plowing guys to take a run on our neighborhood street so that Michael could get out and check his properties. When he got back in, he said that he saw more stuck cars than he had on Friday. Guess people got a bit over zealous and thought they could make it out -- sorry charlie! The drifts and piles are a good 4 feet tall in some places. Plows are working mainly on the primary roads - secondary roads aren't being touched.

I predict that if they can't get the roads clear by Monday night then we'll have off of school for the whole week. Since we are expecting another storm that is to bring 3-6" of snow on top of what we already have.

Have I said lately that I have had enough snow? Enough already!!

On the back porch - it was nearly up to my waist.

Michael shoveling like a good husband and daddy!

He had a little too much fun throwing "snowballs" at
Daddy and Mommy!

Abraham climbed over a pile the plow made and got stuck.
Daddy to the rescue!

I've fallen and I can't get up! :)

I love the snow! That looks so beautiful but I know it's not very fun to live in. Hope you make it- and make the best of it!
