12/17/20 Huge Blizzard

Yet another, even larger huge blizzard hit Thursday 12/17/20.

This one was worse than the Nor'easter we had back on 12/04. At times, the snow was coming down at 3 inches an hour. We got 24 inches for sure, and there are areas where it exceeded that. It was "epic", to say the least....

But I did get to try my hand at making Christmas cookies later in the day.

The cleanup was really challenging for the plow guys. They had to come back 3 times; each one like they hadn't been there before. I spent 4 hours on Friday raking at least 16 inches off of the roof, and then shoveling everything out. I should have taken a picture of my Subaru as you would never guess that under that pile of snow there was a car. It was piled so high that I used the roof rake to get the snow off it.

I just had to stop after 4 hours. I slept 10 hours Friday night, but had to go back out Saturday morning to rake off the whole roof as I'll show in my next entry.... Tough storm.

Mia out in it early morning Thursday, but down in Dover so not the same storm....

But even at 8:00 am up here it was grim.

By 11:00 am the snow was just topping the arm rests on The Snow Depth Chair, something like 28 inches.


Current Picture
And by 1:45 pm snow had almost topped the back of the chair which is 36 inches.... But remember, there was still 8 or so inches on the ground from the last Nor'easter storm on the 4th. But, still a lot of snow!

He likes the snow, but not when it gets this deep!

By 3:30 the snow hills were becoming huge!

Sue took the great picture out the window at the storms height.
