Unprecedented

In case you may not have heard, we've been getting a little snow over here in the Mid-Atlantic. And by a little, I mean 20+ inches on December 19-20th, several inches on January 30-31st, several more inches February 2-3rd, 33 inches February 5-6th, and they're calling for 16-20 inches more starting this afternoon into tomorrow evening. It is crazy to me that 1- 16 inches of snow now sounds like "nothing" compared to the incredible 33 inches we just had dumped on us, and 2-local forecasters are using the term "blizzard conditions" twice in one week! This is definitely unprecedented snow for the Baltimore/Washington area.

Here's a look at our neighbors' houses and cars... and the 4 foot snow drift in the middle of the road.




Spencer is working hard shoveling...



A look at our patio area this morning. I have no idea where 16-20 more inches of snow are going to go!


I also have no idea when schools will be back in session and we'll be back to work! This is sheer crazyness... definitely record-breaking snowfall for our area!

I am from Canada so that is common place here:) Our schools would have only been cancelled for one day - much to the kids dismay. It really is beautiful, but I guess it isn't so beautiful when you aren't prepared for it.
I have been following your blog for a long time but never commented - enjoy the rest of your pregnancy - you look great.

It is crazy isn't it! The snow should be here in a few hours! I think it is fun as long as all my loved ones can stay off the roads. Hope you are well. Miss you. (I know I have been so crazy and busy - we need a good long email!)

I was wondering about you. As in hoping you don't go into labor because you can't get into the hospital. Stay safe and hopefully Eliana will stay put for a few more weeks :) Enjoy the snow!

I'm here with you in Maryland - and it is crazy! I think my husband and I may have brought it with us from Boston to here... so sorry!
