Snowpocalypse 2010

February 8, 2010

Have you heard about the snow storm that paralyzed the mid-Atlantic over the weekend? Yours truly has been stuck right in the middle of it since late Friday. The storm has been called many things: Super Snow 2010, in honor of the Super Bowl. Snowmageddon 2010. And my personal favorite Snowpocalypse 2010.We literally have no where left to put the snow and there is more coming on Tuesday afternoon. Five to ten more inches to be exact! The yard in front of my townhouse is a six foot tall wall of snow and as I type this one of my neighbors is cleaning off his car and adding to it. L was playing in the snow yesterday while we shoveled and JD and I had to keep checking on him to make sure he didn’t get lost in the mounds. At one point we turn around to see him standing just behind the top of the wall leaning against the middle branches of the tree in our yard. So instead of getting a lot of writing done this week I will be entertaining my kiddos. There is no school for the foreseeable future, the buses can’t get to half the kids because their streets are impassable. I’m including a few pictures of the snow from early Saturday morning. At that point we only had about 23 inches, definitely a pain but also kind of pretty. We ended up getting over 30 inches of snow in this storm, more snow that we got in the previous three winters combined. If anyone has an extra snow shovel lying around, please send it my way!

Best,

Sophia
