When just a snow is not enough-

We are in the middle of a "major snow event" as they like to call it up here. We have gotten an awful lot of snow since yesterday- here is my car which was clean yesterday



If you look out by the fence you will see where the road is (supposed to be)


and here is my front door. I can't get it open more than this......




And I can't shovel. I spent yesterday in the ER- I slipped and hurt my back. I spent yesterday in a muscle- relaxant coma. Of course, I wasn't as bad as the man in the room next to mine at the hospital. He slipped and fell- and when he looked down he knew he was in trouble because his foot was backwards.
I have no tv right now- the dish is covered up by the snow. It just keeps coming down..... I think this may be the largest snowfall I have seen since I moved back here in 6 years. It's a good thing I have emergency food and movies or this would be mighty uncomfortable....

Wow. I thought we were getting a lot of snow, but it doesn't even begin to compare.

What are forecasters saying? Will it be like this all winter?

thanks. The snow still has not stopped- it may snow for a another day or so. I think we may get 3 ft total.

We'll be ok if it doesn't ice on top- the trees and wires are already heavy with snow.

I just hope the tv can be fixed. I can live with a lot- but I need my news fix daily!

Whew! Good wishes for a quick recovery! But you're right -- at least your feet are on forwards.
