We are having a BLAST!
And by "we," I mean my neighbors AND April.
She did not brave the storm and road trip - we decided there was nothing brave about driving over the mountains to Tennessee last night.
Insane maybe, but not brave.
At last count, we had ten inches of snow and it's still coming down in buckets. They say it'll continue snowing hard until about 6pm and then the sky will spit flurries until the wee hours of tomorrow morning.
Of course I have PHOTOS!
Last night we decided the only place to be was at our corner bar. We gathered up our neighbors and walked down the street and into the warmth of The Well.
I snapped this photo on our way home from the bar, around 9pm:
Of course I was so excited I could hardly sleep, so I raced downstairs at 2:30 am to take this photo (huge trees in our front yard keep the snow from piling up too much):
Apes shoveling the back yard this morning at 8am. The snow was taller than the Poodle!
The wipers on my car are nearly covered! Took this photo around noon today.
A look down our street at noon today:
Our backyard at noon today. You can see where we shoveled snow so the dogs would do their business - it's time to shovel again...
It's now close to 1pm and it's snowing about as hard as I've seen it. The only downside to this amazing winter wonderland is my concern for all the stray animals. We have some cats that hang around our 'hood and I'm wondering where they are and how they're holding up.
I'm saying a few prayers for them and hoping they're curled up and warm!
Will keep snapping and posting photos!
