Now that that's over with-
For those that haven't seen our weather up here in the Upper Left Hand Corner, it's been something pretty special, even for someone who has lived in snow before. Since last Monday, we've had something like 13" of snow (7 of it last night, and another 3 today) along with 1" of sleet and 50mph winds. Truly impressive. Here's a couple of pix:
This is from my living room window, looking across the street. Big fun.
Here's another shot, looking down my hill to the east. This is not a fun street to get up and down on with this kind of snow.
A shot into my backyard from my upstairs deck. This is a common yard, shared by 4 houses, and it's usually full of kids. Not today.........they'd be swallowed up.
I did try to venture out today to the grocery store for my wife (who is terrified of driving in snow) - and I got stuck twice in snowdrifts. Nice. Not terribly manly, lemme tell ya.
So, for all my friends here that I refer to as "WWW" - "Washington Weather Whimps" - I'll give ya this one. This has been a pretty good storm, and it doesn't look like we're gonna be in the clear anytime soon.
