Blizzard Update: 6:30pm

The snow stopped falling around 3:30pm, and all the neighbours headed outside to plow, blow or dig out their driveways. Andrew started at the back sunroom door and moved his way forward - knowing he would have to get through snow this deep:

And then get through the snow drifts that had climbed up our sunroom door:

This is what the hood of my car looked like after Andrew had cleared off some of the snow:

Willow wanted in on the clean up action, too - but I think it was more just playing with the broom, because I can't say a whole lot of snow was moved on her shift!

This was the drift that connected our two cars:

Willow and I played in the snow - at first she was trying to stay dry, but that quickly went along the wayside and she wanted me to throw her into the snowdrifts:

The driveway and sidewalk cleaner - and to give you a clue as to how much snow we had, Andrew is 6'1", and he is wearing work boots that probably bump him up another inch:

I say there was at least 27" - because my inseam is 27", and when I was in the snow, I was up to my parts that don't like to be cold!

That's some serious white stuff. Reminds me of the last Christmas I spent in New York!
