We've had snow falling everyday for over a week now. This is the most amount of snow I've seen in my life. I'm sure we are well over 20 inches. Everyday hubby is out here shoveling and more shoveling. Daughter #1 has to get to work so hubby will dig her car out and then when she comes home from work, he's out there again digging her a spot to park.
DH harmed with two shovels, going down the road to rescue daughter #1. He has also been driving me to work and picking me up. Daughter #2 and her boyfriend had arrived on the ferry and so off DH goes again to pick them up. Since they were only staying 2 days before heading back home to have Christmas with her boyfriends parents, hubby was again driving, a 1 hour trip took 4 hours. I'm sure he just about had enough.
Our front of our house.
The snow just keeps getting deeper and deeper. A week ago we didn't have a flake of snow.
I had to tromp through the back yard, snow higher than my knees. Yes I got snow in my boots but I really wanted to get this picture of the icicle, the biggest I've seen. Hubby yelled out "don't you get stuck because I'm not coming to dig you out". Lucky for me I made it through the snow on my own.
DH trying to decided what's the best strategy to dig my car out. We have a garage but we got stuck several times trying to get down the back lane....not going to happen with so much snow.
I walked down to Safeway and by the time I was through the check out he was there to give me a ride home. I have the sweetest hubby, he's been so good at getting the car out almost every day.
Here we are after all the gifts have been opened. Daughter #1 is not a morning person still in her jammies. Can you see the sock monkey daughter #2 is holding, she made that for me and boy is it ever so cute, the monkey even has thumbs and pants too.
