The BIG Dig Out

The pergola is still snow covered and huge icicles are forming on the side of the house … I think they're really pretty, but they can be deadly.  I'll take my chances. 

Last night on the local news, Churchton got a shout out with a snowfall total of 26.5 inches.  I believe it.

I spent a couple hours today getting the snow off of my car, and then shoveling it out of the driveway.  We have yet to see a snowplow on this street.  I don't know what's going on, usually our streets are plowed in a very timely manner.  The next street over (which is a main thoroughfare in the neighborhood) has been plowed.  It's next to impossible to get out of here without some kind of snow removal.  I didn't even try.  I spent the day working on assignments for my online classes, which include looking at Illustrator tutorials and re-creating my stapler drawings in Illustrator, and also completing a project in Photoshop for my Digital Imaging class.  I also spent some time documenting all the activity outside:

My neighbor across the street got his car stuck in the unplowed road.

Finally, the big guns arrived, my next door neighbor, Ronnie with his backhoe came to the rescue!

Ronnie got the snow out of the driveway, and Dave (my neighbor on the other side) and Lance shoveled what Ronnie couldn't scoop up.  Ronnie also plowed a path for us to get out.  I am a lucky girl and so thankful to my all of my neighbors, Ronnie, Dave, Dave #2 and Mr. Trader.  

The college and most everything else is closed tomorrow.  So, just going to hang out and work on my Photoshop and Illustrator projects.

P.S.  There is a Winter Storm Watch posted already for Anne Arudel County for Tuesday night into Wednesday for a potential of 5 or more inches of snow.  Stay tuned.  One more inch of snow and we'll break the record for 2nd snowiest winter of all time here in D.C.
