“26 Inches!!! -- February 7, 20109”

26 Inches!

That’s the unofficial measurement here in Windy Meadow, twenty six inches of snow during the February 6, 2010 Blizzard.

That my friends, is a lot of snow!

Our primary roads are now in good shape. Our secondary roads are passable as we now have one lane open in the road in front of our house and on the rest of our secondary roads out to the main road. Most of the public schools in the path of the blizzard have already cancelled school for tomorrow.

We are very thankful for our state highway employees, police officers, volunteer fire personnel, EMT personnel, our Hospital personnel, and all of the others who volunteered their time to keep everything running during the blizzard. Many of them arrived on Friday night and are just beginning to go home as they are being relieved by those who can now get out of their homes.

Once the snow stopped yesterday afternoon, we were able to dig our way out of the front door. Yes, even though we have a roof over our front door, the snow was blown up against the door!

I thought I would share some pictures of the 2010 Blizzard.


During the blizzard,

This is the looking out of our front door,



Our sun dial is almost under snow,


Looking out of our garage,



Front sidewalk cleared by dusk. Look at the snow on the little roof!




Dear son clearing sidewalk,



Front sidewalk cleared and sign posted asking to be plowed,



Dear husband working hard to clear in front of the garage doors,


Did you know that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and predicted six more weeks of winter? Sigh…

By the way, there are now predictions for 5 or more inches of snow beginning this Tuesday through Wednesday. Yes, we have another winter storm watch posted already!

Good luck digging out. We are going to get your Tuesday snow starting tonight/tomorrow. Hopefully, it will not be as bad as what you saw over the weekend. Nice pictures!!
