Living where I live this week meant I got hit by The Blizzard of 2011. According to the news reports we got about 20 inches of snow. The heavy winds meant there were huge snowdrifts everywhere. The drift in our back yard was nearly as tall as our 6 foot fence!
The Chef and I double teamed the driveway. It took us a couple of hours all together, but we did it. We even made sure to shovel several feet of the street at the foot of the driveway. This way, when the plow went by this morning it didn't bury the end of the driveway again.
As if ridiculous amounts of snow weren't enough, today it is expected to be 11 degrees with wind chills below zero. Yikes. Looks like this is one more day this week where the kids and I will stay at home. There is just no sensein dragging either of them outside in this weather.
Having people over will be interesting for a while. Parking along the street isn't an option if there is a passenger in the car. We should be able to go two cars wide in the driveway, but with all that snow piled up that isn't likely. The Chef and I will have to keep that in mind when deciding whether or not to have a few people over to watch the Superbowl.
