Snowpocalypse 2010

Yes I know that title's been overused in the news, but I still like it! We have officially now entered the record books: most snow in one winter ever recorded in the D.C. area! I believe it's at 65" and counting right now, and February isn't over yet!

Here's what it's been looking like around here lately:

After one of our small snowfalls leading up to the blizzards.

Snow is just beginning here. How can I tell? Because I can still see the road!

There's a bush under there somewhere, and a house behind it!

Our street, buried under two feet of snow.

Beautiful, snowy front yard.

Poor Stoehr had the hard job of digging us out of the piles of snow.

Kieran absolutely loved the snow. Snowball fights, forts, snowboarding, you name it.

A lot of snowboarding took place. Kieran is actually getting some air here!

Both boys and their friends roamed the yard, from the hill in front to the woods in back.

Kaden walking in the street, knee deep!

Kieran in the street, thigh deep!

Stoehr trying to dig our cars out of the drifts.

Neighborhood kids (including mine) heading up the street to a snowball fight. We literally had to wade up the road.

After the first blizzard on the weekend, we measured 23". The second blizzard mid-week added another foot!

Definitely a winter we will never forget!
