First Snowstorm!

I am supposed to be on my way to work, but this is my unplowed street! We woke up to 2 feet of snow!! I am serious! See photos below! My cheeks are still burning from being outside shovelling. I thought I should make a path from door to street in case of emergency. I always walk to work, anyway, so digging out the car isn't a priority, but if we do get that warm weather that's going to change that light fluffy snow to heavy snow, to ice, ugh. So I cleared the top of the car. The city buses are not even running yet, so I doubt there will be a line up at the door of my store, but I will get there in due time to shovel some more! I had to blog these photos first! We haven't had this much snow since the blizzard of 1977! They call this the 'lake effect'; I believe the snow develops over the great lakes and then comes inland, in this case over Lake Huron.

I enjoyed your pictures of the snow. Although snow is definitely not a novelty here, it blows around more and seldom piles up like that. Unfortunately, if we wait for it to melt away, it could take 6 or 7 months.
