This is an archived posting from my previous website “Chips Antidotal Wanderings” – a personal blog about family, creative moments, and pain management activities in my life. That blog was active from 2004-2011.

We had a bit of a snow storm come through yesterday and today. Lucky us, we had an “early release” from our jobs and got home without mishap. Which was a white-knuckle driving experience for sure! I hate driving blind in white-out conditions!

Now we’re snowed into our cozy little home and enjoying some family time watching movies, playing on computers, video games, and just hangin’ out. Since the blizzard is still going on, we have no plans of shoveling out until later this afternoon or tomorrow morning. Waiting for the high winds to quit long enough for our efforts to be worth something. It doesn’t make much sense to start the work before the snow is finished blowing.

Not sure how many inches of snow we actually got with this storm yet. Haven’t heard any current rulings. But our snow drifts are pretty high. When I took these photos a few hours ago… right in front of the garage door we have a drift that’s 6-foot already. And looking in the backyard you can see that the drifts are as high and in some places, even higher than our 6-foot fence. Since taking these clips, the drifts have gotten even higher. Almost the entire fence in the back of the yard is completely covered in snow now.

Boy, is it cold too! Last I heard, they still had the frost bight warnings out. Which is another good reason not to go start the snow removal efforts. We were going to get in the hot tub last night. But when we opened the cabana we found ourselves in a winter wonderland that needed a little scrapping. And the temps were too low to be out there long enough to gett things cleared. So we put that on hold for a while. ROFLOL

Blizzard conditions are predicted to end sometime this afternoon. I think the snowfall is supposed to tapper off before Santa’s sleigh is due to fly also. But I’m sure we’ll have plenty of the white stuff still on the ground for him to land his team of reindeer. 🙂
