Oh, Charlotte, how could you!?

Poor arborvitae.
Wow, no more smugly thinking that this winter was a breeze.  Here I sit, sick as a dog, for the second time this month.  No more smugly thinking that I'll get through this winter untouched by germs.

I don't remember this much snow in one storm before.  I think this tops the blizzard of 1978.  It started around 9 a.m.   By 11 p.m. it really looked like about two feet had fallen.  My power went out briefly at around 8 p.m.  It continues to be windy now at 5:15 a.m.

Typically for us, we should have some warmish temperatures starting on Monday.  That's good because there's a whole lot of snow that needs to melt.

OK, it finally stopped around noon but it's still very windy.  I just came in after 2 1/2 hours of shoveling and I have the tiniest driveway and walkways.
Recycle cart and car buried.

I've never had this much snow blow onto my porch before.

Snow on deck is up to the window.  That hump is a table.
Oh well.  Back to coughing, nose-blowing and Sarah Richardson marathons on the computer.
