Digging out...

Just a few photos to show you how we fared during this latest storm, Nemo.  As it turned out, we were apparently in the "sweet" spot as far as snow fall amounts.  There are reports from between 25 and 31 inches here in this area.  Greg measured in our driveway and said he thought it was around 23 inches.  I think it's just a matter of where you measure.  But that's a lot of snow, folks.  Especially in one snowfall.  We are convinced that it is the single largest snowfall that we have experienced in our 30 some years here in Massachusetts.  

In any case, while it is a lot of snow, we are very glad that we didn't lose power.  There are about 400,000 out in the state, but we are not among them.  It was a surprise to us, considering they were predicting high winds.   But, hey, no complaints here!

So the travel ban was lifted at 4:00 p.m. today and we are free to move around when and where we want....if we can get the heck out of our driveway.  Greg is almost done with the snow blowing.  
He is not a happy camper.  Guess I can't blame him.

That is a lot of snow! I'm seeing lots of pics from New England, in particular, Mass. with over 2 feet of snow. Parts of Maritime Canada got it too but mostly the winds were bad and causing drifting. There was also a storm surge on the coast of Nova Scotia which flooded the streets of a historic town. I'm glad you are safe and can get out now. I like the photos of the deck chairs. Take care.

My daughter sent some pictures from school - oh man, does they take me back to winters of yesteryears when as a child we could build tunnels in the snow it was to high.

Keep warm and dry.

Oh, my goodness...I meant to visit last night and wasn't on the computer much.

What a job your hubby had...and what a LOT of snow that is. I have never, ever seen that much at one time. I can't believe you didn't lose power, but am glad you didn't.

Deanna said...

Wow, that is one heck of a snowstorm. With 23 inches I am sure it took quite a bit of shoveling and snow-blowing to get that much snow off of your driveway. Stay warm & safe!!

Stratoz said...

I know the pain, annoyance, beauty, and awe of two feet of snow. We got two inches from Nemo. I'm ok with a lack of awe.

Debbie said...

ooohhhh def more then six inches, I'm not sure where I got that from. Somehow half a barn door equals half a foot. I am a silly girl. This is about what I thought you guys got!

My dear Barbara, I heard on tv for Massachusetts and worried.
Thank God, you're well!
You have too much snow.
Glad to pass the difficult.
I hope you're in good health.
The picture of you, as always, is excellent!
I send you a hug and kisses
