Where my snowshoes at (or enough already)!

Ok - it's probably actually too early to start complaining about the snow. However, it's December 23rd and little ol' Deer Park is absolutely BURIED in snow! At one point, we got 30 inches in 24 hours. That was so last week! I can't find official totals but it *has* to be 40-45 inches by now. By comparison, last year (which was pretty terrible), we got 110-120 inches for the whole season. I am more than bummed as I am supposed to fly over to Seattle tomorrow - I don't think it's going to happen. I'll post more on my "serial hobbying" in this cabin-fever-inducing weather but in the meantime, enjoy a little of my snow chronicaling here. We had a snowstorm on the 12th that dropped about 6 inches - that was nothin'! The above photo was taken on December 21st.

This one - a few hours later - It's so hard to show the magnitude of how just how much snow this is. I can't actually get to the backyard, but if I could, it would be up to my thighs.

And yesterday -
It just keeps coming down! Temps have been hovering around zero, although I did wake up to -11F the other day.

I've become verrrry fond of the snowblower -
This is the third time this week I've had to rescue my mailbox from the snowfall and the snow plow.

Finally, my Andrew Carson kinetic wind sculpture may not be getting much action today but it is a nice, colorful distraction against all of the whiteness! If you'd like to see it day before yesterday in the mini blizzard we were having, have a look at it here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPsGoZ9wfas
