I have no idea why winter storms are given names now, like hurricanes, but they are. All week long the weather people could not get a handle on this storm. The big joke going around that we were getting anywhere from 2" to 24". For awhile the Cape was told we were getting slammed. The day before the storm, it got downgraded but we would get high winds, then it started to snow around 1:00 on Saturday and we got immediately upgraded to blizzard conditions.
I took this one around 5. I was soooo glad that Val's wedding was last weekend. If this had happened, it would have had to have been postponed.
Then I went out around 11:30 when it was just starting to slow down. Yep...we got buried. Didn't lose power though, although it flickered a few times. The plows went by with regularity.
Yesterday dawned cold and cloudy but overall, I didn't think it was near as bad as it could've been, or as bad as the first blizzard we had last year.
It eventually got very sunny and nice out, and the snow already started to melt. I stayed in and did a couple of crafts and cooked a big lunch for Russell. I didn't go out to take any pics till about 4 pm.
I should probably knock that snow off so the tree doesn't break.

I am hopeful that this will melt off a bit before we get hit with the next storm. Better yet, I hope this is the only storm we have!
