We have gotten clobbered here! We have so much snow. Too much snow.
Here's a picture of how things looked after a few hours of snow. This picture was taken on Friday night. Actually, I guess it was Saturday morning about 1 am.
Nick trying to clean the weight of the snow off the trees so that they didn't break. They provide our backyard with a little bit of privacy.
Today, Sunday, the sun was shining in a big way. Lila wanted to go outside and play in the snow. Once she was outside, however, she just wasn't happy. Her (rain) boots were too big, so they kept falling off. She didn't think she could walk in them so she wouldn't even try. She did not want to go back inside, so we set her on top of the snow.
She wasn't sure what to think.
After Lila's non-nap (that's a post for another day) Tiffani and I decided to venture out to see what was going on in the neighborhood. I forgot my camera, so the next few pictures are taken with Tif's phone.
Our street is only plowed enough for one car to pass. It got a little tricky.
We drove over to our local grocery store, and I had never seen anything like it. So many of the shelves were bare. A few examples............
The bananas were basically gone.
Check out the bread aisle.
What are we having for dinner? Looks like our choices are seriously limited! We wanted some ground beef for our Super Bowl nachos but didn't find any. They had a few roasts and some ribs left.
It was so weird.
It's still being debated how much snow we actually got in our area. It's somewhere between 27 and 32 inches, that's all I know. I have spent winters in Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota. To my knowledge I have never seen this much snow from one snowstorm. It's a lot of snow.
School is out Monday and Tuesday, and we are expecting 5 or 6 more inches of snow on Tuesday and Wednesday. Oh, joy. I don't think the kids will go to school all week. Events are being canceled like crazy. I had a very full schedule this week and now........ I don't.
The effects of this snowstorm have basically paralyzed our area. Many people are without power, and it is very difficult to get around. I'm so worried about the people on my Meals on Wheels route. And so many others who might not have heat. Or food.
As I sit here in my warm house with my (way too) full stomach, I am thankful.
