Let it snow!
« on: January 21, 2005, 08:11:19 PM »

anyone live in the northeast?
If we get snowed in this weekend (1/22) how about some live?
If I got it I'll play it! 

I'll be off both Sat. and Sun.

Well Sunday is the playoffs. So Saturday.
Oh... GO EAGLES!!

(Let's pretend this topic isn't five years old. I dug it out of a snowbank.)

So far, we have 21" in Gaithersburg, and it's still snowing. We also lost power for about 3 hours last night.

I took this picture when it just began snowing. Notice the tarps on the cars. This is my new plan to reduce the hassle of scraping off the snow.


Saturday morning. 21", higher drifts all over, trees bent to the ground.


Back deck.


Chloe's having fun, though.


Even Snowball likes it.


Me? Not so much.


Don't eat that yellow snow!


A couple of enterprising young men stopped by Sunday morning and offered to shovel my driveway. I don't think they understood what they were getting into, so I upped their offer and even then dismissed them early. It was worth the price just to get this far ahead. And the tarps worked great! I'm going to buy a couple more so I can cover both cars entirely.

WOW! That is a lot of snow.  Whereas, we haven't had nearly as much snow this Winter as we usually do. *knock on wood*

I found an undisturbed area on the back deck and measured. I'm officially calling it 28 inches.

The blizzard of 2010 brought about three feet of snow and took our power at about midnight on Friday.  As of 11:30 this morning it was still out and I'm typing this on my iPod touch from a friend's house where we're staying tonight.  Hopefully the power will be back on soon and I can post pictures.

We lost power on Friday night around 9pm, and didn't get it back until last night around 7pm.  The plows came through Saturday night so we we able to dig out yesterday morning and get to a friends house in DC to warm up.  Mike, I hope you have your power back soon!  Pepco's website has a map of when each area is expected to be restored, but it wasn't readable on the blackberry...not sure if iPhone is different.

Sorry no pics this time...it was too damn cold!

I'm sorry to hear that you guys lost power for so long.  Being without heat in that kind of weather is definitely serious.

Well we got home around noon today and, thank God, our power was back on.  We're just finishing up watching a movie, but I will try to post pictures in the next day or two.  It's a nice 70 degrees in our house now.  Much better than the 44 degrees it was when we woke up Sunday morning.  :o

A few years back we had an ice storm and no power for three days.  We went to stay with a friend.  It dropped to 20 degrees in the house, I shut off the water and opened the spigots.  My neighbors stayed home and huddled around the fireplace, their pipes burst while they were asleep and caused thousands in damage.
