McHenry, Illinois Blizzard 2011

Well, we had our Blizzard.  What a mess!  This is what we woke up to at 4 am this morning:


This is our mudroom.  It's probably a good thing we haven't remodeled it yet!  And it's a good thing we don't have a screen door on it yet.  We wouldn't have been able to get out of the house.  Would have had to wait for a neighbor to come and help!

You can't see them, but there are steps under all that snow!
This is the front of my house.  It was about 8:00 this morning.
My Towncar and Scott's Mustang.
Three and Four foot drifts.
Our truck was buried too!

Scott has most of it cleaned up yet.  It's 2:45 in the afternoon and we still haven't seen a snow plow yet.

I'd like to say thanks to everyone who left me kind comments and wishes yesterday.  The low barometric pressure wears on me as does these kind of storms.  I'm sure I'll feel better in a few days.

Well, I can honestly say that it looks an awful lot like it does here in S. WI! We were just saying last Saturday how nice it was that we hadn't had a ton of snow this year. I told Jerry that we would probably get it all in Feb. I really didn't mean in ONE day though! :p

Brrrrr! We got similar photos from our DD in Mundelein today. They had enough snow for a snowball inside; it seeped through their french doors! Stay warm, Pam!

Oh my - and I thought we had a lot!! Poor Scott having to deal with all that and that dreaded snowplow that ALWAYS waits until you have your driveway clear to come along and dump a whole bunch more on you. Stay warm my friend!

That's a lot of snow! It makes me glad to be living in Florida (although I was born and raised in Michigan). That's one part of the north I can definitely live without. Stay safe and warm!

Wow Pam ! Blizzards in the US and tropical cyclones in the north of Australia. What a crazy world just now. I DO love the imprint of the mud room door on the built up snow in the first picture though. Hope you are keeping warm and that the barometer starts rising soon, I feel the pressure changes badly too.
Hooroo
