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.

Never heard of this before. Sounds nifty. I would love to hear all about it after you try it out.

I'm sure that I didn't do it right,
but it sure was FUN!!!

DH was napping and I just couldn't stay inside any longer,
so I did not get any in-service training in this matter,
but he said it looked good and that
we'll make another one tomorrow out front

… and still another one …



My first Snow Plow FINALLY!
I was getting a little concerned that
we'd be stuck for a week.
We've kept the drive and walkways pretty much
snow-free, but the roads in our area hadn't
been plowed until this afternoon.
So we finished off the job and cleared the
end of the drive.
I think we'll stay put until the sun comes out to
de-ice the roads though.

I showed this to DH and he exclaimed,
"If we need one of those, we're moving back to Hawaii!"

Not bad for a first try Kgirl. But, it does remind me of this (NSFW): https://gagmemes.blogspot.com/2019/0...our-dalek.html

You bet RF !
After the last snow we had earlier this month,
I insisted that we buy one.
Best $7 I ever spent!

Taxy, we get a little here "in the middle of the desert", but nothing like THIS!
We read in the newspaper this morning that they haven't had a snow storm like this since 1967!

[sorry for the sideways photo... I gotta `member not to do that]
We got another 5 1/2 inches overnight and 2 more during the day today. It looks like we're done, I hope … fingers crossed

K-Girl, you are having WAY too much fun with this snow thing. BTW, make sure the next "snowperson" gets a waist and a neck.
