The Blizzard of 2013

This is what greeted us at the door after the blizzard.

Well they said we were going to be hit with major snow and high winds and boy were they right.  Friday day wasn’t bad but as we approached night and overnight the snow came down fast and the winds were very strong.  My sister lost power and she just had it restored yesterday! We were blessed in that no trees came down and our power never went off.  The governor issued a driving ban which if you know me, I wasn’t going anywhere if you paid me.  I am a little granny when it comes to driving in the snow.

The boys had a snow day on Friday and Monday due to poor road conditions. So there was major Cabin Fever in our home over the weekend.

The first picture is of what we saw when we first opened our door on Saturday. Where to begin was my first thought.  Oh and yes, I still have my wreath on the front door.

This is what you can see from the side of our deck.

Leao spent over 3 hours clearing the walk ways, front stairs, infront of the garage and the clearing the car in the front driveway. I spent 2 hours shoveling out our back walkway and cleaning both our cars.  Our plow guy didn’t arrive until Sunday and did a great job clearing both driveways.

 

You can't see my walkway or my retaining wall and my car was covered pretty thick with snow.

I hope all of you affected by the storm fared well.   My boys are back in school today which means I am able to actually get some work done.

Have a blessed day!

  1. Wow, that is some amount of snow.
    Glad everyone is safe and warm.

    • Thanks Alison! We are doing well. I still have my mind on others that didn’t fare as well. I know some places on the coast had major damage and flooding. So sorry for them.

  2. Wow, we had about 3 inches of wet snow today it is now sleeting so will probably gone by tomorrow.
