Snow Days

After several quiet winters, we have really been hit by the snow this year, and it's only mid-January. We got about 20 inches right after Christmas and 24 inches this past Wednesday. Luckily most of the Christmas blizzard snow melted before the new snow came. Here is what 24 inches of snow looks like for my friends who are having a hard time imagining it:

This is my car about midway through the storm--maybe 12-18 inches.

A fence that is about 7 feet high (thus snow piled that high after the plow came through midway through the storm.
