The BIG Dig Out Part II


This is what is waiting for me outside this morning.  It's almost enough to make me want to go back to bed and wake up when it's all melted.  I guess the only way to get through it is to get out there and start shoveling.  

At least there's not as much snow as the storm on Saturday.  

At least the sun is shining.  

At least the wind has stopped blowing.

At least there is no where I have to be.  (The federal government is closed for the 4th day in a row and public schools have shut down for this whole week, and the college is also closed again today).

The DC area has broken a 110 year old record for the most snow in a season.  We are now at 55.3" for this winter.  We've received more snow than Denver, and I think we've gotten all the snow that was supposed to go to Vancouver.  I think somebody up there in the weather department got lost and dumped all this snow here instead of where it was supposed to go.

I can't photograph a snowstorm without taking photos of the birds and Zachary:

And then there are the wicked huge icicles — I've never seen icicles this big:

I am going to knock them all down today so the weight of them doesn't tear the gutters off of my house.  

Here's the end result of the baking I did yesterday:

That REALLY does make things all better since I may be shoveling snow well into next week. 😉  You can find the recipe here.

Good times.
