Quick heads up.  After working at the office too late last night, I have my Grand Cherokee's 4WD to thank for making the short trek.  Of course I was greeted with this when I finally got home:


And the usual entryway...


After digging my way back into the house, I woke up this morning to the appearance that I had done nothing the night before:


That door is supposed to swing out, and with a 36" snowdrift, it wasn't happening.  A thank you to my neighbor who had to climb out his window this morning to start clearing his driveway.  Fortunately he heard me politely asking for some help to get the door open!

Given the predictions we had already planned to take the day off, so while I'll still be answering phones and e-mail while I'm indoors, I'll be occupied a good deal of the day digging out.  We'll be back at it trying not to freeze solid tomorrow.

Thanks again for all of your support and enthusiasm!

Wow that's a whole bunch of snow.  In PA we had an ice storm on top of the snow we already had..
I simply love this stuff.

When we had our ice storm a few weeks ago, we had ice skaters on Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta.  Tell me again about "Global Warming"

It was a bit crazy last night... thunder, lightning, wind and snow.

Most of the drive finally cleared... now for the 4.5' tall drift in front of the garage.

I wonder if very high SPL bass would melt snow... hmmm

Below is a picture of Lake Shore Drive this morning (likely from the North Ave pedestrian bridge).  I keep thinking of a scene from The Day After Tomorrow... photographer unknown:

Your picture isn't showing Mark...

This one from Chicago is interesting.  Not sure if it's the one you were intending to post.

I'm almost afraid to ask what Mark Seaton considers as "very high SPL bass"?!

I was watching the weather report in Melbourne, Australia about 2 days ago and they made mention that 3/4 of the United Stated would be affected by snow. With the recent floods in Queensland (Australia) and now Cyclone Yasi affecting them (A force 5 Cyclone like Katrina) I just hope those affected by these severe weather incidents stay safe.

Stay inside Mark and don't take any unnecessary risks. That goes for all our American friends here and of course in Australia. When its cold here in Melbourne I usually indulge in some Italian Hot Chocolate and watch Classic Trek

Global warming = weather gets more weird and extreme

I'd prefer to not derail into political and environment debates, as I don't the have time when I still have a 4th dig-out day required to clear the 3' deep drift that allows access to my alley and trash bins.  This morning I had to dig back out the curb after the plows finally made it to our street around 7pm last night.  Feeling inspired, the front door is once again accessible as well. 20" of snow is manageable.  2.5-5' snow drifts less so!

At least I've gotten plenty of exercise this week.

That is a lot of snow.  But let's get some perspective.  Here is winter in Russia.

That would be correct.  I don't need anything extra making it harder for me to get around.  I sometimes have a hard enough time as it is given my "situation".
