This is me on our second time out today cleaning the walk and driveway. We got the other side cleared off but it is snowing like mad and when the plow comes by, it will be snowed under again. I borrowed George's hat this time out.
Yesterday, we had this driveway all cleaned out. Overnight we got all this snow. We were able to open only one side of our double drive and wore out. As we were cleaning out, the plow came an we had to shovel again. I was using the shovel. George was using the snowblower as you see and the snow was up to the top of his boots. This snow is supposed to continue until 4 AM on Sunday and the temperature is forcasted for only 4 degrees overnight. We even had thunder and lightening last night.

This picture didn't come out well, It is showing how deep my footprints are on the walk. It might show up better on a large view, not sure.

This is our back patio. The swing looks like it has a puffy quilt on it. Nope, it is snow.

This is our neighbor's car. It is in their driveway across from ours. Hope they don't need out. The clocks might SPRING ahead tonight, but IT IS NOT SPRING IN OHIO.

Yup we had our first dump of this storm over Friday night. We're now waiting for the next dump to come. We could get up to 50cm when all is said and done!

Hello Nancy, I think Miss Heidi would love to be at your place now!!But I think this amount of snow is really too much! If it goes on like this, you won't be able to get out of your house...Well, it gives you even more time for stitching, allthough you don't really need that...Your stitching is going so well!!!You are doing a great job on that! You really catched up the stitching virus!I think I'll have to make some time for stitching as well. Bye bye groetjes Sonja

Where are your snowpeople???

Go out and play in the snow. By the time you create a snowfamily, your snow will be cleared. :)

Love and hugs ~

Wow Nancy! I am definitely sending some South Carolina rays your way!

To keep yourself warm Heidi needs to create a quilt in a snow theme - to resemble the "puffy quilt" on your swing.

Aunt Nancy, you need to hire some young neighbor boys to shovel for you!
