Update...The After Photo


You wouldn't know it was the same backyard would you?  You can still see the flower pot that was sitting on the stone wall yesterday.  I don't know the final snow accumulation, but my guess is probably over two feet.


 I couldn't believe the size of this snow drift on my car.   It doesn't look like I'll be going anywhere for awhile.


The snow on top of my car is as tall as the garage roof. There is a full dormer on the back of the house that is completely covered by the drifts on the garage roof.  My husband will use the roof rake after we clear the car off and move it closer to the end of the driveway.

We haven't had a chance to snow blow a path to the front door yet.  There is so much snow in the driveway and of course we had to snow blow a space in the yard for Bella to use.  It might not get done today.  The traveling ban that had been in place through out the blizzard will be lifted later this afternoon.  The good news it seems, is that most everyone has weathered the storm without incident.  Good news.

  12. Wow what a difference a day makes. At least you can get to the driver's side door to the car, if you could drive it down the road the snow would probably fall off. Start singing ... Tomorrow, tomorrow, the sun will come out tomorrow and all the snow will melt away. ............ Hunker down stay warm, stay dry, thank goodness for snow blowers.

  13. Just goes to show you what the wind did in this storm ... the drifting in our neck of the woods was epic! One whole set of windows on the hillside of the grey cottage is covered with snow ... roof rake time!

    I'm so glad you guys came through things okay! We've kept our power, but there's rain projected for early in the week and that will make for heavy trees .... keep the extra water in the buckets and pots and make some extra food just in case!

    Big hug!

  14. I know just how you feel! UGH! We are still digging out here down on the Cape and it will definitely run into Sunday. Thank goodness you are all safe and sound. Thinking of you. Think spring. Think baby chicks :)

  15. That's quite a lot of snow on the roof. Did you hear we're expecting rain on Monday? I have to get out on my flat roof tomorrow to shovel it off. It's certainly pretty but what a lot of work!

  16. I'd love just a little bit of that snow! :)

  17. Oh my, glad you are doing okay in it. It is so pretty to look at but.... comes with alot of other worries too.

  18. Good news indeed. And it looks like your drifts are even bigger than ours!!....

  19. Wow, what a storm! I feel guilty here on on west coast because we've had such a mild winter so far! It really puts things in perspective with that picture of your car. You can really understand how one might get lost or confused under these circumstances (with everything covered). Stay warm and enjoy the snow days ahead!

  24. Oh my GOSH! You guys got a LOT more snow than we did here in western Mass. Whoa doggie. You guys are buried. Hope you're keeping warm and snug. Susan

  25. OH MY GOODNESS! Now that's a LOT of snow!
    Your time lapse photos were a brilliant idea. But that's serious amounts of white fluff!
    It's a good job Bella is black because we would certainly loose our Muffy in that amount of white! ^..^
    I feel quite guilty sitting here in our beautiful warm sunny temperature today whilst you are struggling there. Stay safe and cosy.
    Just have to add that your house looks devine by the way. ;D

    ReplyDelete

  30. Holy cow! It is beautiful, but I know at least a little somethin' about what you're going through. Two years ago we had the snowpocalypse in MO. It hit the day my husband had his first back surgery. Oh my, the memories.. but we made it. Just be safe and take your time.. that is a crazy amount of snow!! -Tammy

  33. Nemo was such a big snow storm! I have a nephew in eastern Long Island that had 32 inches of snow! He is a PA and was standed at the hospital he works in for three days before he could get home. Hope the melt is happening now and you are able to drive again!
