About to get it again

White-out. (Mar 8 11:36 a.m.)

Sigh.

(Mar 8 1:48 p.m.)

Well, we got about 11″ inches of snow last week, with some negligible flurries after Thursday.

Proof of 11 inches. (Mar 8 1:59 p.m.)

As for the next coming days, we’re in the region, forecast-wise, expected to get 1 to 1.5 feet of new snow this week.

(Jan 5 12:17 p.m.)

After the storm, snow will fall from the trees and snowbanks around plowing/shoveling areas will grow further in height.  It adds to the (unpaid) job of shoveling the driveway that the banks at the end need to be low enough to see the road from within the car.

I am currently documenting the snowfall here on twitter.  That is until the power goes out.  I do have photo editing software on the smartphone…using Basilisk II, but I shouldn’t wear the battery down scaling the photos.

You can tell from the image that about half a foot has dropped in only six hours.

Well, in other news, Amy @ thebumblefiles is guest posting shortly.  Yay!… so far, that’s been slow going; first timer here.  See Guest Posters Wanted! for terms and conditions.  Ugh, it takes forever to compose posts on the phone…
