Oh my gravy all over my two scoop rice, that’s OMG! in my world.
So far, from 1130p last night up until 330p this afternoon, we have accumulated
NINE INCHES of snow.
This may sound like nothing to some of the group,
but `member, I’m from HAWAII, I hadn’t even SEEN snow
until we moved here to the ‘Mainland’.
DH and I are sharing in the shoveling duties, so that we are both as
soar and achy together.
NO WHINING!

Man, you got dumped on!

It snowed all night here, and we’ll into morning, but the snow didn’t accumulate in the valley. All of the surrounding mountains were blanketed though. I’d say down to about 2500 ft elevation. The valley’s a little lower.

Holy cow, kgirl! Snow is so pretty when it first falls, but not so much when it gets all muddy and slushy...

They says Inuits have 50 or more words for snow.

I think 42 of them are curses.

This was our parking lot a week or so back. I sympathize with you. Any luck it will melt in a week like ours did?

9 inches of snow in one go is nothing to sneeze at. Doubly snow if you don't usually get snow.

I bought a cordless electric shovel (Snow Joe). I finally get to try it out this morning.
