    First time since I was in high school I had a "Day Off" for snow, only time in 7 years of working for the County they've closed the sites!!

    We're supposed to all be out of power and drowning in snow by now, but I can still see the tips of the grass. Not bad yet. They say we're getting around 2ft...we'll see.

    Mindy would be buried, it's about three times her height past the door! We shoveled out the back door so they could go out, but she waits until she's doing the doggy version of crossed legs, and refuses to go out until she's about that desperate!

    It's snowing like crazy right now! Isn't officially a blizzard yet, but looks darn close to me. Supposed to get 2-3 ft, can definitely see that happening.

    We have a golf course down the road, took Wesley there and let him off leash. Just got back. He had a blast, it was hilarious when he got caught in the snow drifts, they're up to his belly + and he is super tall. The visibility is so bright even though it's 11 PM. The snowplows can barely keep up, and it hasn't really started coming down insanely hard yet. We're gonna be so snowed in.

    Oh God I'm jealous.

    It has been too long since we've had a good snow storm. This winter has been cold, but pretty lame in the snow department :(

    Well, we just figured out how to dig the front door open.

    We got I think 36 inches. Some of the drifts are MASSIVE. My brother's nissan is completely invisible, it looks like a snow bank.

    62 and sunny here. It's supposed to go up to 74 this afternoon.

    The wonderful winter weather almost makes up for the horrible humid summer weather :rofl1:

    So far, the snow is up to the door frame and it's still snowing at the same rate. I only wish it would've waited until Monday!
