Snowed In ~~~

~~~Or out as the case may be. KM and I are snowed in! CJ is snowed out! He was called to duty yesterday afternoon at 5:30ish after working on the neighbors addition all day - trying to get the walls up before the storm hit - and sneaking in a 30 minute catnap. He flopped onto the bed at about 6:15 this morning. I came out at that point to make sure the fire was still going, made some coffee, and shoveled off the back porch for the 5th time since yesterday - the dogs have to get out somewhere! - and fell asleep on the couch for a little while. I was awoken at 8:30 to the phone ringing and CJ was off again! The weather reports for today say "Snow showers. Patchy freezing drizzle possible. High around 25F. Winds NNE at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of snow 60%. About one inch of snow expected." - Well it is 10:30am and we already have had another 2 inches of snow just this morning and "it doesn't show signs of stopping!"

The path for the dogs - just can't seem to keep it clear. I also had to go and shovel off the steps down off the deck, as Rex just couldn't find his footing to get off the deck - I can't imagine what people with little dogs do in this type of situation!
The snow atop the table has not been touched - so you have a frame of reference that is the little tikes picnic table and the mounds on either side are the benches.

The rest of the back yard - that has been untouched.

We measured the snow on this table lst night at 7:30pm and it was 7.5 inches - this morning it - while I am typing this KM is measuring - it is 11.5 inches!

Luckily I have LOTS to keep me busy inside - finishing up gifts, baking and cleaning!
