Blizzard of 2010

If you haven't heard yet, the mid-Atlantic region was hit with two snow storms in 5 days.  These two storms dropped significant amounts of snow on us, in total probably close to 32".

1st Storm Friday/Saturday - I worked both of these days, driving home about 2 hours after the storm had started on Friday night, and driving in a couple hours after it had stopped on Saturday.  Sunday we had a birthday party, and I was dealing with a sick dog, so I didn't get too many photos.
 
  

 
This one was taken after the storm had moved out Saturday.  I was at work and had only my IPhone, so not the greatest photo, but the colors were too spectacular not to capture.


 
2nd Storm - Started about 7pm 2/9 and stopped around 10pm 2/10.  The first photos were Wednesday morning before the worst part of the storm arrived.  Tara and I went for a walk.
 
 


These sunny photos were taken this (Thursday) afternoon.  Our maintenance guys do a really great job of cleaning things up. There is a lot of snow, a lot of parking lot/sidewalk, and really only 4 guys.  My car above is the white one on the right, my mom's is the big pile of snow two cars behind it.  I got it dug out, and Jamal, our neighbor's awesome teenage son had already dug out mine.  It really was a beautiful day, and I actually enjoyed being outside!  Below is the giant 10 ft snowman that some of the residents built!

We took a little drive through town.

My pictures look a lot like yours. Lots of snow. We have that same snowman flag too. And where is that Cold Stone Creamery? I love that ice cream, and I didn't know there was one nearby.

Hi Martha. I enjoyed looking at yoru pictures. It's been quite the storms. It makes everything so beautiful. It took a long time to dig out our car yesterday morning. I had to drive into the office because we lost our power. My office is about 30 minutes away and the roads were a bit treacherous in some parts. I'm glad you were able to get to work. Your town is pretty. I think you guys would like where we are too. Would to have you come visit!

Really great shots Martha! We drove to Cracker Barrel on Thursday morning and there was about six inches of snow and slush still on the roads. What can I say I love Cracker Barrel. :)

I don't know exactly what part of Pa you live in but I live there too and you pics are great. It has been a rough week and it is still snowing out. Can't wait for it to leave. I hope the dog gets better.
