February 16 - 17, 2003 Snow Storm
Here is a panoramic view of our street, taken about 2;30 PM EST on Sunday, February 16, 2003. It is still snowing hard!
Here's the view out our front door as of about 9:00 AM Monday morning. And it's still snowing.
|No sailing today!||I had to dig a path to the fence so
Yahoo could talk to Peanut and Quinn.
|It's definitely over his head.||Safe to say we're not going anywhere soon!|
|About 17 inches where it hasn't drifted
in the backyard (as of 9:45 AM Monday).
|The snow stopped and we started . . . digging out!|
The Red area is the winter storm warning area . . . need I say more?
