Welcome to the North Pole*

Digging out Little RubySu. (Yes, she's kind of a homely car.) This is what we spent our Sunday doing. Even church was canceled on Sunday. CHURCH! CANCELED!! (This isn't all 'New' snow - just the top 12-ish inches.)

This snow pile would've been higher, but we first had to get up on top of it (using a LADDER) to shovel it down to make room for the new snow. At one point, one of my legs sunk in up to my waist while the other was stuck in an awkward position on top of the snow. Good thing The Husband was there or my pleas of 'Help! I'm stuck in the snow!' would have gone unheeded.

This is the pathway we keep shoveled in back of our house for when the oilman comes with a delivery. Part of the pile on the right that you can't see is approximately level with our neighbour's garage roof, which, if we knew it was more stable and she'd never find out, would be a grand roof to slide off of.

The clothesline. I can just barely reach is in summer. This snow pile is roughly five feet deep.

If you look closely, you might see a polar bear hiding in our neighbour's snow pile.

Wow! I thought we had it bad here but you take the cake! At least it's a good excuse for a workout.

Oh and I like the black background you have now.

Wow, those are some seriously amazing pictures of snow piles. It seems everywhere but here seems to have gotten an over abundance of snow this year.

okay, i get your annoyance now. If i was stuck in the house with maggie for so long I'd lose it! You are officially invited to winter in Memphis now!

That is CRAZY snow! Ours has been melting like crazy over the past few days and The Baby and I have actually been able to LEAVE THE HOUSE!

That is a heck of a lot of snow - Holy-get-the-shovels-and-dig-yourself-a-tunnel-to-Texas Batman!!!! Stay warm Sweetie - see you soon. Kellan

This is insane. I was all impressed in the first photo that you thought to move your wipers like that. By the last photo I had realized that details like that are clearly old hat for you.

Kellan said...

Hi Bren - Thanks for coming by and thanks for your prayers for our sweet baby. Take care and I'll see you soon. Kellan

You look like a Canadian Al-Qaeda member.
