This was last Wednesday Morning (Feb 2, 2011). I went out to check on the snow. I wanted to see if it was a snow day or if I needed to figure out how to get to work. It was to my knees and still coming down. The roads hadn't been totally cleared but it looked like a possibility that I would need to drive in. But the email came in from my boss that we were not to venture in. I was relieved as I do not like driving in bad weather.
Later that day, I shoveled out my car. The pile of snow behind it was as much as another Mini. It took me 2 1/2 hours to dig out. No kidding. It was a beautiful afternoon though. The sun was shining and all of my neighbors came out to help each other.
