Lots of Snow

We had a snow storm yesterday where we received a foot or more. I thought the storm was done until I woke up this morning. We woke up to another foot that fell overnight. Right now Joe is up on the roof shoveling it and then he has to shovel the driveway. Our neighbor has a friend that plows our long shared driveway for free. Well the plow driver got stuck and could not finish the job! Here are some pictures of our winter wonderland!

Welcome to our home!

This snow right here is really deep due to Joe shoveling the roof off from an earlier storm. You can just barely see in the lower right corner the tunnel he and Mikayla are working on

This is a picture of our backyard. The dogs have their paths and if they try to do a new path they have to swim.

Another picture of the backyard.

On Friday Joe cleaned off a section our bridge's railing. You can see where the new snow is.

Mikayla and I went for a short walk.

The best thing about this storm is that we warmed up a lot. Last week we waking up to -20 and lucky if we saw 5 or 10 outside. But today it is almost 40!! I would go outside in short sleeves if it were not so windy.

We are having strange weather here in Central NY. It is supposed to be 60 degrees tomorrow!! My husband is taking a 1/2 so that we can get outside and do some yard cleaning. Woo-hoo. Fun. :-0

Holy Cow! That is a ton of snow.

We had bad weather last week with wind chills below 0. But the last two days it has been in the 60's. It is such a tease.

Holy Snow! We have had a lot of snow in NH this year too. It's warmer this week, so a lot of it is melting!

Oh my...that is A LOT OF SNOW!! I hope you own a 4x4 to get you to the hospital when the baby comes!!

It is so weird here...it is supposed to be 70 degrees today!!

We have had only one small dusting of snow...I hope it all either comes before the baby gets here though, b/c I want to be able to go out walking after the little one is here.

I hope all is well!!
