I took a half day from work yesterday to dig out, as the snow didn't stop falling here until late Tuesday and the howling winds didn't subside until the wee hours Wednesday morning.
We appear to have gotten at least 2 feet/61 cm of snow, perhaps a bit more--it's hard to tell given the drifting. I'm glad to say it's the more powdery stuff, so easier to move with a shovel, although figuring out where to put the shovelful required a bit of engineering. We're on track to get more snow tomorrow. Skiers are ecstatic, and I was hoping to snowshoe yesterday, but was too tired after shovelling to do so.
My Michelin light blue coat was superb and kept me toasty warm, complemented by a hat a knitter friend made (too small for everyone but me, so it became mine) and the pair of double knitted mittens I made some time back. I posted photos here of some I made but can't find them now.
Anyhow, it seems all of us have breathed a collective sigh of relief. The ground is snow-covered, as it should be in winter, the electrics stayed on, I made a big pot of chili for lunch and quick suppers, and on we go.
More snow on the horizon tomorrow.
