. . .
It was snowing all day (on Wednesday) and by dinnertime, I'd say we had about 1' 5" of snow...as my friend said about the storm; "be careful what you wish for!" SO, I'm sorry that the photos are all grey and monotoned...but that's what snow looks like!
[Where did the porch steps go?]
After attempting to shovel the driveway in two layers (my back still hurts), I went across the street to see my friend she and I tried to play in the snow...but it was very hard given the fact that we couldn't walk a step without being sucked into and buried in a snow drift!
[I hope that wasn't a squirrel's nest!]
[Our garage was buried alive...I sill can't open the door to get my sleds out!]
My friend and I soon realized that there was just a tad too much snow for sledding, so we decided to make a village of snow homes, under a pine grove, next to her house.
(About the sledding: Yes, we tried, but it's terribly hard to get out of a sled when the snow is higher than you while you are kneeling down.)

While we're on the subject of icicles: the day after the storm was beautiful with the brightest sky of blue imaginable! The sun was shining on our many icicles and let me tell you; besides the cold, it was quite the photo op.!
[My best icicle picture ever taken...I haven't taken all that many!]
