2-2-2011 An All Day Job

It will be an all day job
to shovel the driveway...
but still can't go anywhere
as the snow plows haven't cleared the streets...

The weathermen predicted 10-14" of snow...
they weren't far off!!!
The snow comes up to my husband's knees
and when I measured it... 17"


The drift by our front door...
