heres some pics of my situation earlier, I had to use the snow blower to get into my truck so I could plow, me and the kids did just about 1/2 of the houses we have and the other half are all good with waiting till tomorrow, and they already cancelled school for tomorrow so they are good to help again...

It was funny to see them working so hard, and I split it up after we finished our yard, I did a couple came home, and then went back out, so it wasnt one after another. When we got home my youngest asked if he gets extra allowance for all the work he did today, I told him I thought he would be OK with me donating his allowance to someone in need since he enjoyed giving today so much.. He didn't even crack a smile, lol....

if you look in this first picture you can see the cars that wouldnt fit in the garages COVERED!!!! Also since I built the house I NEVER seen snow embedded into the stone work, this is under a porch roof 5-6 feet away from teh uncovered portion and the stone work joints were packed with snow!!!

Toes stay warm when the body stays in the house. Just having an "Annie" kind of day here - Tomorrow, Tomorrow!

Early evening today from my front yard...our weather doesn't know if it should storm up and rain again or let the blue skies shine through.

Pretty picture, Cheryl. ~~ Yes our snow is pretty to look at...from the inside! You might have noticed the pics were not taken from outside. We'll tackle the driveway tomorrow.

The closest "big city" we live near is Worcester, MA. They announced on today's news that Worcester's snowfall in this storm was the most snow ever. 34.5 inches of snow. With that as a starting point, I wouldn't be surprised if we did get over 2 feet in our yard. Don't know for sure...we still haven't ventured out to clear it... But I can say for sure that it is a LOT!
