    Well the snow stopped here this morning and we have a total of about 32 inches.. Maybe even more than that but who is counting. It is going to take me a week to dig out of this.. It took my husband two hours to get to the road and he was at the end of our driveway. I am so sick of snow...... UGH!!!!

    My poor dogs are so funny when they go out. The lab just stands there but she is a little confused because she really wants to squat but can't. I had to dig a spot for the Jack russell. He looked at us like we were stupid the first time we tried to get him to go out...

    Snow stopped here a few hours ago, thankfully. We have about as much as Loubell has I think by now. I remember not so long ago when we lived in Northern Virginia we had snow similar to this. It took three days for a plow to come through and it got stuck.

    Right now we finally have a front end loader helping clear our back streets. We actually might be able to get out tomorrow.

    Thanks Jennifer for the compliment re. my pictures.
    I live on the western rim of the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon in Wellsboro, PA.
    Have you ever heard of the Pa Grand Canyon?
    Obviously not as awesome as the "real" Grand Canyon but beautiful in it's own rite.
    Our snow will be here until May. It's always cooler here.
    Yes, I took those pictures with my daughters' no megapixel $50.00 "WalMart special" camera.
    Thanks again RainbowzCNA, and stay warm and dry!!!

    I live in Harlem - in Manhattan. Our neighborhood is last priority for plowing in NYC. Drifting, blowing snow has left some parked cars completedly covered. Some subway lines have shorted out (snow + electricity = bad).
    It's a little frustrating - but, also fun. It's nice to struggle with a natural problem, instead of worrying about terror threats.

    Just spoke to my sister in Northern VA and she has 30 inches.She lives out in the country,no plows out that way and her hubby has been plowing for the state since this started so she didn't even try to go to work today.

    Much snow here, about 45 minutes east of DC and just due south of Baltimore...probably somewhere between 2 and 2 1/12 feet with 6 and 8 foot drifts. Haven't seen a snow plow yet. I had to call in to work today, and I feel for the nurses who no doubt got stuck there. I still have no shot at getting my car out nor is my road passable, not sure how I will get to work tomorrow, but I sure as heck will bring an overnight bag.

    Take care everyone.....

    I'm in suburban Philadelphia but for some reason our small boro is in a pocket of very heavy snow, officially 28.7 inches. My boys have been out sledding but I've been too busy shoveling. It took me 3 hours to dig my car out (the maroon Monte Carlo in the pics). I told my 11 yo that I would tell him he'll never see this much snow again except this is the second time! It did stop for a few hours but now it's started up again, about another 1 inch or so. Schools already closed for tomorrow as the district is in the area of snow emergency. We still haven't been plowed yet, no back hoe either. Guess we'll just wait and see. On the good side 90 mins of show shoveling spent 539 calories, think I'll go have a glass of wine.
