Mostly a Wordless Wednesday.
As many know, this past weekend, the East got hammered by SnowZilla, the angry monster child of Snowpocalypse and Snowmageddon. It was the second worse storm in history, according to Dulles Airport. Sheesh.
We got roughly 20 inches at my house.
First flakes seen at 11:15 AM. By around 5:30, this is what we faced, with the worst still to come:
The view at 10:00 AM. When the snow blows everywhere, visibility goes down. There is no street to be seen. Unless you have 4 WD, chains, or snow tires, you aren't getting out. At 3:00 something AM I watched a snow plow have trouble and we only had nine inches out my back door in the sheltered area. #snowzilla2016 #snowday9
My dog was horrified beyond belief and tried to sleep through the entire storm.
We really did try to help him have an easier time doing his doggie busines.
Little over 24 hours after first flake, the snow was still going strong.
Nephi decided, maybe he could beat Snowzilla and save us from more snow.
Nephi in his battling of #snowzilla2016 in #fxbg! He isn't enjoying his #snowday9. We went and measured between 18 inches in the sheltered spot and drifts/higher at 22! My front porch is at 22 just beyond the screen door. We are never leaving our house again… I did get stuck in the deep… Don't go out in pajama pants! Lol
By yesterday, we had signicant melt. My street hadn’t seen a plow since 3 AM Saturday morning.
Mostly I hid inside. However, before you think we can’t have some fun, I did get some pictures of Caramon fighting Snowzilla during the storm – Dressed as Starkiller, Darth Vader’s Secret Apprentice!
