I Shoveled a Path to the Street

Snow Halfway Up the Birdfeeder

Our "Driveway"

And It's Still Coming Down

You have been busy! That's a lot of shoveling! It is beautiful, but I'm glad it's not here.

I'm loving it. Rob and I have taken turns shoveling. I've made sure the path to the bird feeders is clear. My deck is the official hood. Enjoy!

it's so pretty as much of a mission all this stuff has been for you all.

okay, trader joes? I LOVE that place!! Does the store by you
Hid a stuffed purple monkey in random spots and each time you go to check out with the kids the cashier asks the kids if they found the purple monkey? if they do they can pick from cookies, chocolate suckers or balloons..makes it fun for the kids.

Have you tried their ice cream cookie vanilla sandwiches covered in mini chocolate chips? seriously amazing..well, that and their fresh salsa, and chocolate cake ice cream cake, and oj and and and... :P)

You have received the eye of the storm, my friend. Southern NJ has received 12-18"s. Do you want to know what our accumulation is? I'd say about 1" - that's it.

Allen and I wanted a real snow storm, and all we got was a lousy inch of powder.

I just went through all your photos and I live in Canada just above where you are and a bit to the right.
Well that depends which side of the border you;re standing on but all I am going to say is whew....that was a close one.

Lena said...

You sure will be busy for awhile.

OMG, you really got hit hard! It's going to take a long time to dig out from under all that snow. What was your final total?

We were lucky. The rain last night got rid of the snow from yesterday and we had maybe 3 inches of wet snow today.

Stay warm and safe.

Hopefully 'ole man winter is finished with you folks for awhile. Looks like all the shoveling will be done in time to kick back at watch the big game tomorrow. We haven't rec'd this much snow yet this winter but I'm sure we will. Good thing about your storms, all the snow is gone soon after. For us here in Canada...not so much!

Oh my gosh! Kathy, that is one serious snowstorm! You have done well to shovel out to the street! I hope you don't have any more!

Won't spring be lovely when it comes!
