I saw that on a church sign on TV.  Sums up my feelings very well.

We got another 10 inches today--on top of all the rest that's been on the ground since around Christmas. This is officially the snowiest month in this state on record.

Our total:  55 inches!  That doesn't count any of the snow we got in December.

Seven storms (SEVEN!) have dropped at least six inches of snow this season. And we've got more snow forecast for Saturday and Tuesday.  I can barely see my neighbor's SUV over the snow wall between our driveways.

Here is what greeted us this morning (after the Governor mercifully closed all State offices unil noon.  Thank you!)  That's the RV covered in snow.

And now we can get to the driveway.  On the right, that bush you can't see is covered in snow.

Janet is 5' 11" and the snow pile is taller than she is!  Janet is loving the snow.

I am not.  Check out the icicles!

Hurray for Janet! A very sensible woman with appropriate opinions.

Snow yes!

Ok, you've got us beat by 30". Rowan is VERY jealous. I am too :)

16" in Colchester - I didn't get to work until 12:30pm as a result of shoveling out the driveway. What was melted 2 weeks ago following the 2-footer storm was replaced by all these little dinky storms in the last week and a half, and then last night was not-so-dinky after all.

I can't see my 2' high garden fence anymore. And I really hope our gutters can hold up the ice floes in them until the spring thaw (especially with rotted clapboards holding them up...).

Fortunately, it sounds like this weekend is just minor snow. I haven't heard anything more on the Tuesday-Friday pattern though. What's the one after this weekend supposed to give us? (A sneeze, I hope?)

Well, so far it says snow showers. But then the last storm they said snow showers also and we got six inches.

Chris, Janet says you and Rowan have Good Taste! I say bah to all of you! ;-)

You can blame me--I figure hell froze over because I got a cell phone at last.

Have roof rake if you want to borrow it. I love raking...I just hate shoveling up underneath again and again and...
